Dicaprio Hangs With Heart-throb Protege Efron

Subscribe To:

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO seems to be giving advice on how to be a teen heart-throb to young hunk ZAC EFRON - the pair was spotted joking and laughing together at a basketball game at the weekend (22/23Nov08).
The pair caught the Los Angeles Lakers game at the Staples Center, and looked the best of friends as they took in the action from their centre-court seats.
And DiCaprio may have used the meeting to tell the High School Musical hunk on how to handle being Hollywood's matinee idol - after he recently insisted he wanted to hand over the reigns to the 20-year-old.
He explains, "I look at young Zac Efron and think 'Go get it pal, leave me in peace.' I was never happy with the teen idol tag at all - never wanted to be a sex symbol or all that stuff - it was the work that appealed to me. Really nothing else. (I have) total respect for how young stars like Zac handle it all. Really total respect."
Efron's new-found heart-throb status mirrors the path DiCaprio took to becoming a teenage pin-up - Efron's roles in the hit High School Musical franchise have propelled him to international stardom as Titanic and Romeo + Juliet did for DiCaprio.
