Zac Efron thinks falling in love is the ''best feeling in the world''.

The 'Lucky One' actor - who has been romantically linked with actress Lily Collins and singer Taylor Swift since splitting from Vanessa Hudgens in December 2010 after five years together - knows relationships won't always work out but still loves The Feeling of being with someone.

He said: ''I enjoy romance. I think that's why we're here. It's one of the best feelings you can have, falling in love.

''It doesn't always have to work out, but when you're in it, it's still the best feeling in the world.''

Zac admits he is a romantic person and particularly loves spoiling his girlfriends with personal gifts.

He added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I think I'm a grand gesture guy. I've done things like write a song for a girl and I like to paint. For me, personal things like that are always the best.''

The 24-year-old actor tries to keep his personal life private because he doesn't want it to overshadow his career.

He said: ''It fights you creatively to have too much of your personal information out there. I know the actors I personally admire - people like Tom Hardy - are the ones I know the least about, who keep their heads down.

''The work - I say it's work, but I love what I do - is what I want to focus on. I would love to be well known for that. Not what I do on a Saturday.''
