Could Rose Byrne make a hot wife for Zac Efron? In an interview with women’s magazine Cleo, the ‘Neighbors’ star said about his co-star, Rose Bryne, ”She might be my favourite actress in the world!”
Efron said, ”She’s got like a light about her you can’t teach or learn. It’s really kinda magical. In this movie she plays a strong, funny, easy-going woman. She’s gonna redefine what you want a wife to be.”
He added, ”Australian girls are incredibly charming. [Rose] has a unique perspective on life, it’s really upbeat and funny. You could say that’s gotta be from Australia.”
Efron is reportedly single, although there were rumors that he was dating non-Australian actress Halston Sage, who also in the movie ‘Neighbors’, for a number of months.
An insider told Contactmusic about Efron and Sage, ”They were seeing each other a bit during filming of their movie together and ever since he went to rehab they got a lot closer.”
