Zac Efron is a "nerd".

The 'Baywatch' actor may be a heartthrob to millions of women but he claims he finds it hard to get a date because of his uncool hobbies.

He said: "I'm a nerd, dude. I love comic books and video games. I just love chilling."

The 28-year-old star - who has previously been in relationships with Vanessa Hudgens and model Sami Miró - claims he hasn't been on many dates but thinks that's because he is "good" at dating as he quickly gets into a commitment.

Explaining why his inexperience means he isn't good at dating, he backtracked as he told The Fix: "[My dates have] all been successful. That's the problem. Maybe I am good at dates."

And now he is single, the 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' is ready to try something new in his bid to find love again.

He said: "I think I'd like to go and just try something totally different, like blind dating. Maybe I should do like a roundtable of dates."

Zac recently admitted he used to Google himself every day, until he realised it wasn't a healthy thing to do.

He said: "What I found is structure. That led me to a balance of opposites. You get out of life what you put in.

"There was a moment when my morning routine was, like, get up and Google yourself. But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago. I realised that viewing yourself through other people's pictures is not living your own life.

"I wasn't really being myself. A lot of my hobbies had gone out the window. I couldn't skateboard or surf for fear of being followed. Crossing the line of fear is what leads to greatness."
