In a magazine interview last summer, Zac Efron hinted at making the most of the dating scene, well before his December breakup with 'High School Musical' sweetheart Vanessa Hudgens. And despite last month's rumors of reconciliation, it seems the 'Charlie St. Cloud' star is determined to enjoy his single status, at least according to a new report that links Efron with Australian actress Teresa Palmer.

The 23-year-old actor got cozy with the blond beauty on Thursday night, according to People.com. Efron reportedly accompanied Palmer, 24, to a screening of her new comedy 'Take Me Home Tonight' (co-starring Topher Grace and Anna Faris), and to the after-party in Los Angeles. Later, they moved on to Voyeur nightclub, where they were spotted smiling and flirting.
