"That Awkward Moment" star Zac Efron had, ahem, one of those himself when he got into a scuffle with at least one homeless person early Sunday after he and a friend found themselves stranded in downtown Los Angeles.
No arrests were made, but the incident comes at a time when the 26-year-old former "High School Musical" heartthrob would presumably rather be basking in the early buzz for his comedy "Neighbors," which opens May 9 from Universal.
In the raunchy, R-rated film, Efron plays a hard-partying fraternity leader who feuds with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne's young married couple, and reviews out of the SXSW film festival this month were very good.
Variety's Andrew Barker wrote, " 'Neighbors' is an unchecked riot that should go a long way toward selling antagonist Zac Efron as a credible adult actor, though as with anything involving the Greek system, a bit more moderation from the start might have prevented a few headaches afterward." The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore called the film "very funny" and added that Efron is "credibly hateful."
