Washington, April 9 (ANI): Nicole Richie has gagged that she was part of Zac Efron's new spoof only because Kate Winslet was not available.
The 27-year-old wrote on her blog that she was just replacing the actress in the Funny or Die parody.
"Hey guys, check out this Funny or Die video with Zac Efron. It's hysterical!" Us magazine quoted her as saying.
"They were able to get some really great cameos...Vanessa Hudgens, Queen Latifah, and since Kate Winslet was busy, they called me ;)," she added.
The socialite further appreciated 21-year-old Efron's chivalry during the shoot.
She added: "On a serious note, I had a fun time. It was my first time meeting Zac and he is every bit the gentlemen, far beyond his years." (ANI)
