The 25-year-old, who was dating his "High School Musical" co-star Vanessa Hudgens until December 2010, wants to hang out with the 39 year-old.
"I had a poster of Tyra Banks in my bedroom. She was the only girl I really had a crush on. Other than her, the rest of my posters were skateboards, BMX bikes, and Tony Hawk," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Efron as saying.
"I hope we get to hang out soon. I haven't gotten to meet her yet," he added.
