Zac Efron: Dropping Condom on Red Carpet Was "Great Message"
Drop that condom like it's hot!
Zac Efron made a not-so-kid-friendly blunder at the Hollywood premiere of The Lorax Feb. 19 -- accidentally dropping a condom on the red carpet for the animated kid flick inspired by Dr. Seuss' classic book.
Matt Lauer gingerly asked about the prophylactic accident interviewing the High School Musical star, 24, on The Today Show Thursday morning.
"There's something that also brought a lot of attention to the movie, Zac, at the premiere. do you want to take me through it?" Lauer teased.
"I don't want it take you through it," Efron quipped, noticeably squirming. "I never had a pocket-checking policy prior to going onto the red carpet before. but now we fully instated one!
Lauer made sure to clarify, "You dropped a condom?"
"Yeah," Efron said, blushing. "It was really hard for you to say!"
"Better to be safe than sorry," Lauer mused.
"It's a great message!" Efron agreed.
