Zac Efron has joked that twerking is one of his secret talents.

The 26-year-old star shot to fame thanks to the High School Musical franchise and has built a successful Hollywood career. He is also a keen artist, can dance and has plans to go behind the camera, leading him to be quizzed about other hidden talents he has.

"Every morning. Right before I brush my teeth," he laughed to British magazine InStyle, when asked if he likes to twerk at home.

Zac then opened up about his plans for moviemaking. Much as he loves acting, he hopes to achieve other things as his career grows.

"Absolutely, I aspire to write. I'm a good idea guy, though following through on paper is hard. I'd also like to direct but don't like to talk about it too much; I don't want to jinx it. Every time I work with a director, I watch closely. They're all pretty passionate," he explained.

One thing the star has no desire to do is portray a superhero on the big screen. He knows it's many actors' dream job, but he doesn't think he has what it takes to be believable.

"There were people who were born to play action roles or to be the hero, and I'm not that guy. I think I have potential, but I don't feel that way about myself yet. I'd like people to be excited about my being cast. I respect that sense of ownership that fans have about the superhero characters they've grown up with, because I feel the same way," he explained.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

You're moody and sensitive, especially when it comes to family matters. Although you should make a big change, emotional ties to home are holding you back. Stop making excuses for your failure to act. Just take a leap of faith. Your nearest and dearest will learn to live without your constant presence. Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
