Actor Zac Efron was left "squirming" in his seat after taking his mother to an advance screening of his new romantic drama The Lucky One, and even ducked out of the theatre when things got a little too steamy onscreen.
Efron tells People.com, "We saw the film together and I was kind of squirming. Even though she was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those (love) scenes because it was too embarrassing.
"Obviously I'm acting, but knowing that my mum and my family were watching is kind of awkward. There's really no way around it."
But Efron's mum brushed off the sexy scenes and was beaming with pride all the way through the film.
He says, "She was just laughing about it in a good way. She said, 'That's my boy!' I think she was proud of me at the end of it, even if it was weird for her to watch. My mum is my biggest supporter." »
With its affable cast and broadly-appealing battle-of-the-sexes premise, Think Like a Man easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend ahead of The Lucky One and four-time champ The Hunger Games.

While walking around at this year's CinemaCon in Las Vegas, I've been taking tons of pictures of all the posters/banners/theater standees that have been on display. For those unaware, CinemaCon is a convention put on for theater owners in order to get a look at what the studios have to offer for the rest of the year, and where vendors can show new products for theaters to buy. It’s basically Comic-Con for theater owners. Besides showing off never before seen footage, the studios often bring the cast and the filmmakers. Over the course of a few days, Hollywood comes to Las Vegas. While a lot of the banners are just logos, I think they're still worth checking out. Also, it's important to note that the posters/displays change during the week so you never know when something cool will premiere. Hit the jump for posters/banners for »
