Los Angeles - Seth Rogen thought Zac Efron was a "little fucker" when he first met him.

The Neighbors star admits he wasn't impressed by his co-star when he first bumped into him eight years ago, but he's since changed his mind after working with him on the new upcoming comedy film.

Speaking to, he said: "I was expecting to not like him very much when I first met him. The first time I met him I assumed he'd be a little fucker, but that was eight years ago. I was proven very wrong because he's a sweet, nice guy ... He was just so nice, cool and very self-aware and self-effacing and endearing, and all those things that make someone hard to hate."

However, Zac - who shot to fame after landing the leading role in Disney's High School Musical in 2006 - was determined to make a good impression on Seth, 32, because he saw him as an inspiration.

Zac, 26, explained: "I really made some extra effort, and after a while I think I wore him down a bit. I've respected Seth since the first movie that I saw him in. He rebranded comedy, and I identified with it, every single part of it: mind, body and spirit. That's how I want to be."
