Thrill-seeker Zac Efron

Zac Efron likes to jump off cliffs for fun.

The ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ star has just been on vacation to Hawaii with his younger brother Dylan and the thrill-seeking pair weren’t afraid to leap off a 35ft cliff into the ocean when they found a spectacular waterfall.

He said: “I kicked off the summer by taking my little brother, Dylan, on a graduation trip to Hawaii. He’s going off to college next year, and I’ve been working very hard, so we haven’t been able to see each other as much as we would have liked to in the past few years. We hiked through the inner jungle in Maui, and you come across these really beautiful spots. We found this hidden place where there was an enormous waterfall and cliff jump. It was about a 35ft drop.”

Zac - who shot to fame in the ‘High School Musical‘ movies - insists he is fairly fearless in his life and is the kind of person who likes to convince others to try out crazy things.

Dennis Quaid believes prayers saved the lives of his twins.

The 56-year-old actor’s now two-year-old twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace were just two weeks old when they received an accidental overdose of the anti-coagulant drug Heparin in 2007, and Dennis is convinced a “higher power” saved them from dying.

He said: “A lot of people told us later that they were praying for our babies. In the end, I believe that the power of prayer from so many is what saved them. It’s so obvious to me that a higher power in the universe is controlling what’s going on.

“I thought, ‘They’re 12 days old, and they’re going to change the world.’

The 16-year-old actress-and-singer - who fronts her own band The Pretty Reckless - believes she was being shaped as a person through the clothes that were being chosen for her and she had to reclaim her wardrobe to be able to show her true personality.

Taylor - who is the face of Madonna’s fashion line Material Girl - said: “I kind of had a freak-out at some point because you know I was getting moulded into this thing that wasn’t who I am, and it was fitting into the world that will make you popular.

“I think firing my stylists has allowed me to be more free, and I now dress myself.”
