Washington, Jan 20 : Teen heartthrob Zac Efron is fine with being called 'gay' - because it isn't the worst label to be given.
The 'Hairspray' star rose to fame with his role as the singing and dancing basketball player Troy Bolton in Disney's hit franchise 'High School Musical'.
The 20-year-old actor who is dating his 'High School Musical' co-star Vanessa Hudgens insisted that the insinuations don't bother him.
"Honestly, if the worst these people can say about me is that I'm gay, then I think I'll be fine. I can handle it," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
Efron is frequently accused by gossip bloggers of hiding his homosexuality.
