Cowboy, take Us away! Just when you think Zac Efron can’t get any hotter, he goes and does something like shirtless horseback riding. The Neighbors actor, 26, looked like a cover model for some steamy romance novel on Monday, July 7, when he and new hookup Michelle Rodriguez went for a ride in Sardinia, Italy, where they’ve been vacationing with friends.
Efron showed off his uber-ripped physique by stripping down to just a pair of black jeans for the adventure. His sculpted abs and biceps were on full display as he and his majestic steed trotted along the sandy shore of a lake, and then into the shallow surf.
At one point during the afternoon, the 35-year-old Fast and Furious 7 actress was spotted looking at pictures on her camera. Efron stood beside her, his hand around her waist as he leaned in close to peer over her shoulder.
The newly hot-and-heavy duo were also photographed dirty dancing and making out at the Billionaire Club in Sardinia, just days after they were spotted kissing on a boat off the coast.
“Zac and Michelle have great chemistry,” a source previously told Us Weekly of the sexy pair, who met a few years ago and have been friends ever since. “They have a lot to talk about, a lot in common.”
ON FORMER LOVE TEAMS

It is unknown when the couple began dating, but they embarked on their Italian holiday together just last week.
Michelle, who celebrates her 36th birthday later this week, was previously dating Cara Delevingne.
The former couple were first seen kissing at a basketball game in February, confirming their romance.
Michelle and the 21-year-old model are believed to have split up last month as they were last pictured together in May.
The gorgeous brunette first spoke about her sexuality in October last year, when she told Entertainment Weekly, ‘I’ve gone both ways.’
Speaking about assumptions that she has had relations with women, she added: ‘I do as I please. I am too f***ing curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.’
Before Zac and Cara, Michelle has been rumoured to have dated Vin Disel after meeting on the set of Fast And The Furious.
She was also linked to Halle Berry’s husband Olivier Martinez, when he was single and working with Michelle on the action movie S.W.A.T.
Michelle previously told Cosmopolitan: ‘I’m attracted to manly men. I can’t do metrosexuals who get their nails done more than me. Which, is why, living in LA for eight years, you can’t blame me for not having a partner!’
Meanwhile Zac was most recently romantically linked to his Neighbors co-star Halston Sage, and while the pair were seen hanging out together, their relationship was never confirmed.
The actor previously was in a relationship with his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens for four years, and dated Lily Collins for a spell last year.
