When Zac Efron found himself behind Daniel Day-Lewis in the backstage bathroom line, he used the opportunity to express his admiration.

"I'm such a huge fan. Your work inspires us all," Efron said, shaking the Oscar winner's hand. "It's great to have someone like you to watch and be inspired by."

Although gracious, Day-Lewis didn't want to spend too much time collecting accolades.

"I'm just going to sneak in there before someone else does," he said as he made a beeline for the bathroom.
