Is Zac Efron gay? If this question is popping up into your head, you must have heard about his gay kiss with The Rock. Does kissing him make Efron gay? Of course not, Zac Efron is straight, and he indirectly proved that many times. If you want to know further, don’t skip a line. 

Zac Efron And The Rock’s Kissing Scenes Created a Huge Confusion on Zac Efron’s Sexuality

The handsome hunk from the High School Musical has played various roles in different films. But one film kind of created issues for him. The movie’s name is “Baywatch.”

So there’s a scene where Efron was thrown into the water. While he almost lost hope of getting help, The Rock quickly went under the water to save him. 

Efron’s condition was already worse, so he hallucinated The Rock as the heroine he was in love with in that movie. Zac stopped breathing, so Rock tried to give him oxygen through the mouth to mouth resuscitation.

When Matt Brody (Zac Efron) regained his senses, he saw he was actually kissing Dwayne Johnson (The Rock). He then quickly moved away from him. 

Both kissed for a second or two, but this led many confusions to grow. But one of his interviews regarding it can remove the doubts. 

In an interview with James Corden, “The Greatest Showman” actor said he felt weird kissing The Rock. James Corden asked him in ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden, “There is a scene in the film where you pretty much make out with The Rock. My question is, what does The Rock Taste Like?” 

Zac Efron replied, “That is so weird. But to be completely honest, kissing a dude is weird at first but it was like a fresh winter commercial. Like a cool chapstick, it was like crazy why this can’t - he’s good at that too? Jeez, man, he’s just the best at everything. It was an awesome kiss.” 

We need to notice one thing before explaining how good The Rock was at kissing; he mentioned it’s weird to kiss a dude. This is something a straight guy would say and not a gay or bisexual.

Final Words

Female or male, any gender would get a crush on how good Zac Efron looks. He indeed always gives masculine vibes, yet there were gay rumors about him. 

It all started with one funny scene from the Baywatch film where he and The Rock kissed for one or two seconds.
