The 25-year-old actor said at a Cinema Society and Bally-sponsored screening that he has been a fan of Graham and had a crush on her ever since he could remember, the New York Post reported.
“She’s always been the epitome of that perfect girl. I wanted to get it right,” he said.
Meanwhile, Graham said that Efron and director Ramin Bahrani were like, ‘We’ve never done a sex scene before . . . We’re kind of nervous,’ which she thought was very funny.
“I was suddenly this expert,” she added.
