Oops. New Year’s Eve star Zac Efron may have had a red-carpet gaffe of epic proportions: when removing his hand from his pocket, what appeared to be a condom fell out, prompting the young heartthrob to quickly pick it up and stash it away. The premiere was for the children’s animated flick Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax. Message to the children of the world: even famous people make mistakes.
