Zac Efron 'receives large condom delivery'

Zac Efron has been bombarded with deliveries of free condoms after he dropped a prophylactic on the red carpet during the premiere of the movie Dr Seuss' The Lorax.

According to a source close to the actor, the star has taken delivery of around 1,000 condoms from at least three different companies, meaning the celebrity may never need to buy another pack again.

The insider noted: "His mistake has turned into a fantastic opportunity to push the safe sex message and companies are eager to be associated with Zac."

And the deliveries are likely to have been welcomed by the New Year's Eve star - who shot to fame in popular kids film High School Musical - as he recently revealed he is very fond of safe sex, although the performer added he has introduced a pocket-checking policy whenever on the red carpet to make sure a repeat performance does not take place.
