Efron made a pitstop from the promo tour of his new movie Baywatch to chat to Jimmy Kimmel on his late night chat show, where he was quizzed about what happened when he was sat next to the pop music icon during a U.F.C. fight at Madison Square Garden last November.
From snaps of the night, it seemed that the pair were getting on famously, and Kimmel was keen to figure out what the former High School Musical star and the Queen of Pop had been up to....
Firstly, Efron was quizzed at how the pair actually even ended up sitting together.
'In the coolest way possible, I showed up at this fight. It was totally last minute,' Efron said. 'The seats are all named when you get to the center of the ring, and I was ring side, so I was very close to this fight. I kept getting closer, and I knew I was in the front row. I saw several ‘famous’ people, and then Madonna and Zac Efron. Then it just ended. I was like, ‘I’m next to Madonna for this entire fight?’ It was awesome.'
The actor went on to say that he chatted to pop legend, and that they hung out. In fact, Madonna was allegedly pretty into the fight, with Efron saying that 'she was having the time of her life out there.'
Of course, this being Jimmy Kimmel, things didn’t say above board for long, with the chatshow host quizzing Efron as to whether it was possible that Madonna was actually coming on to him.
'Is it possible that Madonna maybe switched the sign so that maybe you would be seated next together?' Kimmel asked. 'Madonna is an irresistible person. When she sets her sights on someone, there’s no escaping.'
Going visibly red, Efron was rather coy about his answers....
Indeed, Efron even joked that he and Madonna got a bit handsy with each other thanks to the excitement with the fight. In fact, Kimmel even shared some video footage of the singer tapping the actor.
When asked point blank whether something had happened between Madonna and himself, the actor gave an embarrassed laugh, before jokingly referring to the previous clip. 'I guess you could say she tapped that,' he said.
