FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
HEALTHY & HAPPY
Zac Efron has plenty to celebrate: sobriety, good friends and a very happy birthday. On Oct. 18 the actor, who went to rehab earlier this year, marked turning 26 with a low-key dinner at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont alongside brother Dylan and pals Robert Pattinson and Joe Jonas. The group abstained from booze. “He looked great and seemed happy to be out,” an eyewitness says. The next day, he took a break from moving into his new home in Los Feliz to practice golf with his father and friends. “My family’s my rock,” the star of the upcoming comedy That Awkward Moment told PEOPLE. “I know they’re always going to be there. And if they can’t, I rely on my friends.”

Though the private pair shied away from any overt PDA, the Oscar winner and her pal seemed comfortable together, chatting with a friend during the cocktail hour at a back table.
