Zac Efron, Michelle Rodriguez kiss each other, confuse the world

Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez friends? Old news. The kissing, however — that’s a different story.

The women took New York by storm in January with a very public display of affection at a New York Knick’s game, but Delevingne had no love for the paparazzi in March after photos were taken of the two on vacation — including shots of the model topless frolicking in the waves with her girlfriend.

Last October, Rodriguez opened up about her bisexuality, saying she found both men and “chicks” intriguing.

But would Efron and the “Fast & the Furious” star be a good match? Maybe not, as she’s been known to get her party on, while he’s reportedly recently out of rehab and ostensibly trying to keep clean.


However it shakes out, we certainly hope she continues picking such pretty people to be photographed with ...
