Zac Efron has befriended Leonardo DiCaprio after fan-boying him at a basketball game.

It’s nice to read about celebrities getting starstruck around each other, it makes them seem more normal, and 22-year-old Zac is an excellent example.

“I met him at a Laker game,” said Zac.

“I’d sat down in seats and I looked down and there was a dude in a baseball hat and I went, ‘Holy s***, that’s Leo!’ I was like, ‘Man, I’m not gonna interrupt you during the game, I know you wanna watch the Lakers. But if there’s any chance that I could just talk to you for a minute, whether we get coffee, anything dude.’”

“And he was like, ‘Dude, what are you doing tomorrow? Come over tomorrow — let’s hang out.’”

“That’s a little taste of how cool he is. He’s just very down to earth. He’s just an awesome dude. He’s been nice enough to hang out with me a few times.”
