Zac Efron Talks Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce ‘High School Musical’ Jokes

February 26, 2024 - Music


Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are currently living out a grown-up, real-life version of Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez’s love story in High School Musical, and Zac Efron is officially here for it.

In a recent interview published Monday (Feb. 26), the Iron Claw star was asked for his take on fan comparisons between Tayvis and HSM. “Wow, I didn’t think about that,” Efron, who starred in the Disney Channel franchise as basketball star Troy, told E! News while promoting his new Prime Video film Ricky Stanicky. “That’s really cool. Shout out to all the High School Musical fans.”

“I love the whole Travis, Taylor thing,” he continued. “Man, I’m so happy for them. They’re two of the best people in the world. How can you not be stoked?”

Fans have been pointing out similarities between the sports-meets-music romance in HSM and Swift’s relationship with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end since the couple first went public in September. For example, one Swiftie tweeted in January, “the chiefs game and the golden globes being within hours of each other reminds me [of] when Troy and Gabriella had the basketball game and the academic decathlon at the same time as the audition for the school musical.”

Shortly afterward, Vanessa Hudgens — who starred as Efron’s love interest in HSM — said on Instagram that the tweet was “hilarious.”

Way back when, Efron and Swift co-starred in The Lorax. While promoting the animated film on The Ellen Show, the pair teamed up for a hilarious musical skit poking fun at dating rumors surrounding their friendship set to the tune of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks.”

Swift and Kelce were last seen together at the pop star’s Feb. 23 Eras Tour show in Australia, where the football player danced along to his superstar girlfriend’s set alongside Katy Perry and Rita Ora and passed out guitar picks to fans. The day prior, the couple went on a date to the Sydney Zoo.
