Is Zac Efron Hooking Up with a (Much!) Older Woman?

The 23-year-old hints that he may be smooching 53-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer in the upcoming film New Year's Eve

Could 23-year-old Zac Efron be heating things up with 53-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer?

Maybe so, according to E! Online. But don't too excited: Their possible romance is strictly onscreen!

Efron has confirmed he’ll be joining the star-studded cast of New Year’s Eve, Garry Marshall’s follow up to the 2010 film Valentine’s Day. "I can tell you that all of my scenes are with Michelle Pfeiffer," Efron said. "I’m very excited."

And Pfeiffer, 53, just might be the former teen idol’s love interest in the romantic comedy. "I’m not gonna say (if we kiss)," Efron teased.

Efron’s December 2010 breakup --  and recent rumored reconciliation with actress Vanessa Hudgens -- has brought a lot of attention to the former Disney star’s romantic life. The couple dated for five years after they met on the set of High School Musical.

In addition to Efron and Pfeiffer, New Year’s Eve will also feature appearances from Lea Michele, Sofia Vergara, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, Robert de Niro and many more. But as for the cougar rumors, we'll have to wait until the movie comes out in December 2011 to see what happens!
