Although the heartthrob's now instated "a pocket-checking policy."

Well played, Zac Efron, well played. "Zac Efron dealt with his red carpet condom-dropping debacle in exactly the right way, with humor and humility," Real Housewives of New York City star LuAnn de Lesseps writes in her weekly column for OK! Magazine.

And a little blushing, too. After pulling his hand from his pocket and accidentally dropping a condom on the red carpet for his latest flick, Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, the 24-year-old initially covered his mouth and turned away from the cameras to suppress his laughter. Days later, Matt Lauer put him on the hot seat to confirm his contraceptive clumsiness.

"I never really had a pocket-checking policy when I was going on the red carpet before, but now we've fully instated one," the former High School Musical man told Matt, who remarked back, "Better to be safe than sorry."

LuAnn couldn't agree more. "Unlike some other celebrities who promote unsafe sex, it’s nice to see that Efron is taking precautions to stay healthy," adds the New York Housewife. "I loved how he quipped that dropping the condom was an important message to add to the already great messages in The Lorax."
