Tom Cruise gives me advice: Zac Efron

London: Actor Zac Efron has revealed that he has asked movie industry veterans such as Tom Cruise for their advice. The 26-year-old `High School Musical` star said that the advices were pretty candid, reportedly.

"I won`t talk specifically about those conversations but I think they were pretty candid and common sense driven. You have to be aware ? and I am ? of who you are and what you bring to the table and even more importantly how you are perceived.

"You really have to take into account what your place is, how you can shape that to what you want it to be in the future and what the steps are to get there," he said.

Efron will be next seen in the `Magic Mike` sequel.
