Gossip roundup: Zac Efron reportedly into threesomes

Former Disney heartthrob Zac Efron is definitely all grown up — and pursuing some very grown-up interests, according to Star magazine. A new detailed report from the publication itemizes Efron’s attempts while in Austin shooting a film earlier this year to coerce multiple women into engaging in threesomes with him and an exotic dancer he’d been spending time with, identified only as “Lisa.” One model and aspiring singer says Efron and Lisa invited her back to his hotel room. “Zac started rubbing my back and playing with my hair … and tried to push me and [Lisa] together like we would kiss,” the woman claims. “It was pretty clear what he wanted, but I wasn’t into it and told him so.” Another model says the “High School Musical” star and his gal pal made a similar attempt during a party at a cabin outside Austin: “Zac seemed drunk and he started rubbing my thigh and said, ‘Stay here and cuddle with us,’” the second woman says. “It was pretty obvious he wanted to have a threesome with me and [Lisa], but I wasn’t interested.”

Amanda Bynes has at least one person in her corner: Former “the Amanda Show” co-star Drake Bell is standing up for the troubled actress despite her recent arrest and frequent Twitter tirades. “I talk to her every day. She’s a sweetheart. I had lunch with her yesterday, and she’s brilliant. She’s good, and she’s healthy,” Bell tells OK! Magazine. “It hurts me and it upsets me” the way the media has been portraying Bines, he explains. “Anytime I’ve ever been with Amanda, she’s totally coherent, totally there, totally everything,” he says. “I’m like, ‘Dude, you come off crazy.’ She’s like, ‘I know, but I don’t mean to. I just changed the way I look!’”

After seven years of dating — and insisting that marriage isn’t that big of a deal to them — Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have reportedly changed their minds and are ready to tie the knot, according to Us Weekly. “Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged,” a source close to the couple says. “They decided they’re ready for the next step. They’re excited!” The source says Jackson is planning to propose this summer and the wedding will happen “imminently.” The “Fringe” star was singing a completely different tune a year ago, telling the magazine, “Marriage is important for the people it’s important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious, so I don’t think there’s any particular push.”

At least one group is feeling good about Justin Bieber’s recent scandals and bouts with growing pains. “One Direction is benefiting greatly from Justin’s a–hole behavior,” a source tells Radar Online. “All of the little girls that loved Bieber don’t love him anymore because ‘he’s bad’ and they are moving on to One Direction. The parents of these young fans are resentful of Justin’s behavior and don’t think he’s a wholesome influence on their children anymore. So they’re pushing for their kids to like One Direction instead.” And the changing attitudes toward Bieber aren’t lost on the British boy band. “Both them and their team is fully aware that they are gaining fans who used to love Bieber, and they know it’s the perfect time to capitalize on it and swoop in to replace him,” the source adds.

“Gossip Girl” star Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz have reportedly called it quits after nearly two years of dating, according to Us Weekly. “It is all good between them. It wasn’t a sad breakup,” a source says. “It just wasn’t working. It really did end on good terms, though. They are at two different stages in their careers. They just didn’t have time for each other.”
