I was a geek in school: Zac Efron

London: Actor Zac Efron says that he was a "skinny, awkward kid" during his school days.

"I wasn`t a heartthrob at school, I was a geek. I was a gawky 17-year-old. A lanky, skinny, awkward kid," showbizspy.co.uk quoted him as saying.

"My friends treat me the way they always did. If I was arrogant towards them, they would kick my ass," he added.

The 22-year-old, who is currently dating his "High School Musical" co-star Vanessa Hudgens, admitted he loves talking to his fans because they`re usually "pretty girls".

"I don`t do disguises because I don`t get hassled too much. Fans are not a big deal - I love talking to fans. They`re usually fun and they`re usually pretty girls to be honest. It`s not the worst thing in the world," he said.
