Teen heart-throb Zac Efron has urged Matthew Mcconaughey to stay away from the beach, because his tabloid persona is overtaking his movie career.
The Hairspray star, 19, likes to keep quiet about his personal life, as he doesn't want what he does in private to detract from his acting.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "A lot of problems you see people having in this business is that is becomes about their personal lives and not about their work.
"Matthew MCConaughey has singlehandedly funded the tabloid magazines for the past two years now. If he would put on a shirt and just get away from the beach, maybe there would be a few less paparazzi around.
"As long as I stay boring, I think I'll be fine."
While other young stars have been admitted to rehab and attracted bad publicity for their incessant partying, Efron makes sure he stays away from the Hollywood hotspots.
He says, "I'm the same age as some other people who are dealing with scandals. I've got friends out here, and we do what kids our age are doing. We don't need people taking photos of us."
