Zac Efron Holding Hands With A Guy At NBA Party, Claims National Enquirer

The National Enquirer (via Boy Culture) is claiming that Zac Efron, seen here on the set of New Year’s Eve on Tuesday (March 1), was spotted holding hands with a guy at an NBA party at the W hotel in Los Angeles on February 18, 2011. According to a partygoer:

“‘I was shocked at how relaxed and open Zac was with this guy,’ continued the fellow partygoer. ‘He walked around talking to him, smiling and holding his hand right in front of everyone, including Vanessa. People were wondering if maybe it was a stunt to make Vanessa jealous. But truthfully, Zac really seemed into the guy.'”

Now I guessing that Zac Efron is a pretty smart guy, and that he’s most likely not gay. However, even if Zac does happen to be gay, my guess is that the last thing that he’d do is hold hands with a guy at an event after being in the closet for so long.

His ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens was at the party as well, and the two of them exchanged pleasantries. What are your thoughts on the holding hands story? Share your thoughts in the comments.
