Washington, Mar 07 (ANI): Hollywood actor Zac Efron has revealed that he is grateful to Leonardo DiCaprio for becoming his mentor, and is glad that he has found an elder brother in him.
The 'High School Musical' actor met Leonardo while attending a basketball game in Los Angeles.
"(When we first met) I was all, 'Oh, hey!' And he turned around and right there I had the 'in' (sic). And I was like, 'I'm a big fan... I'd love to sit down and talk with you sometime.' And he goes, 'Right on," Contactmusic quoted Efron as telling Elle magazine.
"A few nights later, I was at a Lakers game and I texted him, and he said he was coming. And this guy in a ball cap and coat with the collar up sits next to me. We talked the whole game, and he was just everything I thought he would be: smart, level-headed, charming, hilarious. You know, the older-brother vibe," he added.
Meanwhile, DiCaprio has also compared Efron's current pin-up status to his own early career. (ANI)
