Ashley Tisdale Says Zac Efron Was Her ‘Worst’ On-Screen Kiss — Yikes!

Admittedly, it’s been more than a decade since Ashley Tisdale and Zac Efron starred as Sharpay Evans and Troy Bolton in the High School Musical franchise. However, those who loved the non-canon pairing then feel the same even in 2022, which is what makes Tisdale’s recent comments about Efron’s lackluster kissing skills all the more disappointing.

Tisdale called Efron her “worst” on-screen kiss. In a video for Elle’s Thirst Trap series, Ashley Tisdale was asked to share her worst on-screen kiss and she immediately and without hesitation named Zac Efron. Well, that’s pretty harsh!

What made Efron so bad? “I’ll tell you why it was the worst, okay? I had to kiss Zac Efron on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” Okay, so why was that terrible? Well, it’s all because she thought of him like a brother rather than a romantic interest, which made it a bit weird.

Zac Efron tried to slip Ashley Tisdale the tongue during their kiss. That’s what made things extra weird. “At the time, he was used to acting on like, Warner Brothers, which is CW, and we were on Disney Channel,” she shared. “And so he like, he tried kissing me with his tongue, and I was like, get away from me! I closed my mouth so fast. I was like, ‘this is Disney Channel, we don’t kiss like that on Disney Channel!'”

They’d already filmed High School Musical at the time of their kiss. That meant they had a really close relationship that was in no way romantic, so it was hard to get into a new headspace. “It’s the worst because I am so close to him, and he’s like my brother,” Tisdale said. “It’s just weird when you’re so close to somebody, we’d already done the movie, I’d known him for years before. That is why it was the worst. It’s just we’re too close.”
