No wonder the 24-year-old star of 'The Lucky One' still gets embarrassed about sex around his mom.

Zac Efron may not mind filming steamy sex scenes on-camera—especially opposite co-star Taylor Schilling in his new movie, The Lucky One—but he sure does get embarrassed watching them, apparently! 

According to People, the 24-year-old actor recently "squirmed" while watching his on-screen love scenes at a screening of the new Nicholas Sparks tearjerker with his mom.

"Even though she was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those scenes because it was too embarrassing. Obviously I'm acting, but knowing that my mom and my family were watching is kind of awkward. There's really no way around it." Zac Efron Doesn't Mind Having Sex On-Screen

Reportedly, there is a very provocative outdoor shower scene, but Zac said his mother just laughed it off 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 mom is my biggest supporter," he said, adding that his mom, Starla, always raised him to be considerate to women.

"She's always giving me tips like that...My mom is the number one person who has taught me to be courteous towards women, to always be respectful and polite to them, and to always lead with your heart."
