Los Angeles - Zac Efron has dodged claims that he was being romantically pursued by Demi Moore.

Moore, 49 - who is currently believed to be receiving treatment for substance abuse and an eating disorder - is said to have wanted to be more than friends with Efron, 24, following the break-down of her five-year marriage to Ashton Kutcher.

But when asked about the rumours, the High School Musical star - who is good friends with Moore's daughter Rumer Willis, 23 - told US TV show Extra: "I don't know, me and Rumer have been friends for a long time. I know Demi is going through some personal stuff right now. I just wish her well. I hope she's doing okay."

Valentine's Day

However, the singer-and-actor would open up about some of his techniques for wooing the ladies.

He said: "I was a musical theatre geek, so whenever we wanted to impress girls, we'd do a three-man jazz quartet. Yeah, we did some pretty fun stuff."

But despite his unusual methods, Zac is still without a date for Valentine's Day.

He said: "I might just sit at home (...) and cry," before joking that he might "team up" with his The Lorax co-star Taylor Swift who also plans to spend the day alone.

He quickly added: "Wait a sec, uh, no, we're really good friends. She's trying to teach me how to play the guitar."
