“All I have, really, is the ability to look back at my elders and the people that I really respect in this industry, the actors that have been here before and really made an impact…and I put myself in their shoes,” Efron said, according to Reuters.com, at a press screening in Venice.
“I sort of stand here with, say, two roads in front of me,” he said. “One [is]the easy path…towards money and the other one being towards playing more interesting roles that I don’t have all the answers to, or going with Ramin [Bahrani] into the cornfields for a couple of weeks [for the filming of At Any Price.]
“It seems like the choice that I respect more. I’m following my gut here and this is what I want to be doing, you know, I’m hungry for it.”
