The latest astonishing claim to surface here in tinseltown concerns covert activities from teen matinee idols Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens whilst they were reportedly working for the CIA on Black Ops in the middle East.
Unconfirmed reports claim that Efron and Hudgens studied Arabic before being shipped out to North West Pakistan where they were enlisted in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
With Hudgens wearing a burkha and Efron clad in traditional mountain clothing, the intrepid couple set off into the mountains to try to find Public Enemy Number One.
Sadly, their mission failed when they strayed over the border into neighbouring Afghanistan and were captured by an Afghan warlord. It seems that the warlord in question had a satellite dish so he recognised the couple from their frequent TV appearances.
Following a meeting with tribal elders, the decision was made to hold Efron and Hudgens as hostages for an undisclosed ransom. At which point they were locked in a shed usually used as a goat shelter, while their movements were tracked by the CIA using Google Earth.
After three weeks spent in captivity in the most degrading circumstances imaginable - during which they were forced into signing autograph after autograph for local teens - they were eventually rescued by a US Marine named only as Dwight from Oklahoma and led back through the mountains to an American encampment.
A movie depicting the couple's adventures is being worked on as we speak by the Disnae Corporation, to be directed by Mel Gibson, and with the leads to be played by Zac and Vanessa themselves.
Osama Bin Laden could not be reached for comment.
More as we get it.
