Tom Cruise Has Some Career Advice for Zac Efron

May 9, 2014 Tom Cruise, Zac Efron

Tom Cruise wants to give some career advice to Zac Efron.

Zac has apparently approached Cruise after Charlie St. Cloud and Me and Orson Wells failed at the box office.

"I won't talk specifically about those conversations but I think they were pretty candid and common sense driven," the Neighbors star, 26, says of his chats with Cruise 51 (per news.com.au). "You have to be aware—and I am—of who you are and what you bring to the table and even more importantly how you are perceived. You really have to take into account what your place is, how you can shape that to what you want it to be in the future and what the steps are to get there."

Efron diversified his résumé after High School Musical, but those efforts backfired to a certain degree. "I had done films back-to-back-to-back. I was burnt out,"

"It's a strange thing, being handed so much power, to do whatever you want to do," Cruise continued. "I'm offered a lot of movies, but I haven't worked in six or seven months, because I want to sit back and evaluate where I want to go next. My point of view and my values haven't changed. Everybody wants to push and pull me, but I refuse to change my lifestyle."

"Don't get me wrong. I want to be in this position. But I get inundated with so much information. I spend the day weeding through it: charities, benefits, job offers and requests. And I don't want a huge company in front of me. I trust the people who work for me, and I spend time with them, and I want to hear their ideas and keep in touch. A lot of the challenge for me right now is simply to get my life together."
