(CLUE??)Zac Efron and Zendaya bonded over their love of Michael Jackson while filming "Greatest Showman"

Starting a new job is hard, so you’re always looking to make some sort of connection with your co-workers through shared similarities. It makes forming friendships that much easier, you know? So that’s what Zac Efron and Zendaya did while filming The Greatest Showman. The two formed a friendship off-screen (not to mention, also an on-screen romance) and bonded over their mutual love of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

And yes, this shared similiarity made falling in love on-screen so much easier.

Talking with HelloGiggles, the duo explained that they wanted to make the love story between their characters — ringmaster Philipp and trapeze artist Anne — special. As Zendaya puts it: “So many of the themes in it are relevant and are things that we still combat today.”

It was easy for them to do this — and make this special — because they both love Michael Jackson, or as Efron puts it, they’re both *huge* fans.

“He was a huge impact on both of ur lives, and we could relate over that. I think that his message of love…and finding yourself…we connected and bonded over that. I don’t know, maybe somehow he worked his magic through us,” Efron told us.

When asked how hard or easy it was to fall in love, Zendaya joked, “It’s just what we do.”

It’s what they do, and they do it effortlessly. If you’re ready to watch these two lovingly gaze into one another’s eyes (and maybe they’re singing MJ in their head while they do it??) The Greatest Showman hits theaters on December 20th.
Weren't we talking about this movie the other day? What a coincidence! ::boss

Some interesting lyrics
"Come Alive"

[Hugh Jackman:]
You stumble through your days
Got your head hung low
Your skies are a shade of grey
Like a zombie in a maze
You're asleep inside
But you can shake awake

'Cause you're just a dead man walking
Think of that your only option
But you can flip the switch and brighten up your darkest day
Sun is up and the color's blinding
Take the world and redefine it
Leave behind your narrow mind
You'll never be the same

Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reach it up
To the sky
And it's open wide
You're electrified

And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And you know, you can't go back again
To the world that you were living in
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
So, come alive

I see it in your eyes
You believe that lie
That you need to hide your face
Afraid to step outside
So you lock the door
But don't you stay that way

[Keala Settle:]
No more living in those shadows
You and me, we know how that goes
[Daniel Everidge:]
'Cause once you see it, oh you'll never, never be the same
[Both:]
We'll be the light that's shining
Bottle up and keep on trying
[All:]
You can prove there's more to you
[Hugh Jackman:]
You cannot be afraid

[Ensemble:]
Come alive, come alive
Go and ride your light
Let it burn so bright
Reach it up
To the sky
And it's open wide
You're electrified

And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open
So, come alive!

[Ensemble, Zendaya & Hugh Jackman:]
Come one!
Come all!
Come in!
Come on!
To anyone who's bursting with a dream
Come one!
Come all!
You hear!
The call!
To anyone who's searching for a way, to break free

[Ensemble & Hugh Jackman:]
And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

[Ensemble:]
And the world becomes a fantasy
And you're more than you could ever be
'Cause you're dreaming with your eyes wide open
And we know, we can't be go back again
To the world that we were living in
'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open

'Cause we're dreaming with our eyes wide open
So come alive

"From Now On"

[Hugh Jackman:]
I saw the sun begin to dim
And felt that winter wind
Blow cold
A man learns who is there for him
When the glitter fades and the walls won't hold
Cause from then, rubble
What remains
Can only be what's true
If all was lost
Is more I gain
Cause it led me back
To you

From now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the light
From now on
What's waited till tomorrow starts tonight
Tonight
Let this promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on

I drank champagne with kings and queens
The politicians praised my name
But those are someone else's dreams
The pitfalls of the man I became
For years and years
I chased their cheers
The crazy speed of always needing more
But when I stop
And see you here
I remember who all this was for

And from now on
These eyes will not be blinded by the light
From now on
What's waited till tomorrow starts tonight
It starts tonight
And let the promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on
From now on

[Ensemble:]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again!
...

[Hugh Jackman:]
From now on!...

[Ensemble:]
From now on!...

[Hugh Jackman:]
These eyes will not be blinded by the light!

Whats waited till tomorrow starts tonight!
It starts tonight!
Let the promise in me start
Like an anthem in my heart
From now on
From now on

[Ensemble:]
And we will come back home
And we will come back home
Home, again!
...

From now on
From now on
Home, again!
...

He told this same story on Ellen too.

Well we know he has a connection to Michael at least and he's obviously a super fan.

I thought i am going bonkers... as just seen a movie last night and immediately I had a feeling that it was done by MJ.. the dancing, the music... there was smth resembling MJ... plus PT Barnum -he loved it!
Also, Zac was on Graham Northon show and he was recalling MJ....



Also, Michael Grecey ... interestingly enough has only recent pictures... and they all look the same.... like staged and recently taken...

:hmmmm:
