Efron: I'm grateful for career

Zac Efron has revealed he has no regrets about his life.

The Bad Neighbours star admitted he is taking it "day by day", after spending a stint in rehab last December.

Talking about living a life in the public eye, he said: "That's just the way it is. I was really blessed early on, but then you're sort of under that microscope."

The 26-year-old continued: "It's a little bit more embarrassing because, you know, it's out there for everyone to see. But I don't regret anything. I'm still very grateful. Taking it day by day."

Zac, who stars in comedy Bad Neighbours with Seth Rogen and Dave Franco, added: "I consider myself pretty lucky to still be here and have the opportunity to work with guys like Seth. I usually try not to talk about potential movies, I'm superstitious that way, but I was too excited about this. I was on the phone with my mum, dad, brother and friends before I even heard the pitch."

While he may play a fraternity leader in the movie, he doesn't feel like he's missed out on the college experience in real life.

"You can always look back and say, 'What if? Did I miss out on something great?' But that's the beauty of what we get to do as actors," he said.

"We get to step into this world, really live it out to its fullest for several weeks and then quit. I don't think I could have handled being in a fraternity for a long period of time."

Zac added: "It was fun, but I was ready to go back home to real life after."

:: Bad Neighbours is released in cinemas on May 3.
