You know how Simone Biles is such a dedicated Zac Efron fan that she has a cardboard cut-out of the hunky actor at home? Well, if you don't, you should know that she does. So when the actor flew down to Rio to surprise the gold-medal winning gymnast and her teammates, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian, during the Summer Games, to say she was excited might be an understatement. Actually, she was "on cloud 9."
Zac looked just as excited to meet Simone and her teammates during a break in the competition in Rio, where, on Tuesday, Simone won her fourth(!) gold medal, in the individual floor exercise. "They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn't know what to think,'' Zac told Today of the encounter. "I kind of was getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet." And, for the record, the meeting lived up to Simone's expectations. She added, "He's even more gorgeous in person!" (We bet!)
