Always the ladies man, Zac Efron took his skills to Austin, where he was being "super flirty" at Perez Hilton's One Night in Austin event on Saturday night at SXSW, a source says.

"He was hitting on a girl and being super charming," the insider tells PEOPLE. "He took photos with some female fans, but asked them to do it on the down low because he didn't want to bring too much attention to himself."

Enjoying Strongbow cider, the actor, who arrived solo, appeared to be "having a good time and talking to people," the source says.

Efron was dressed very casual, in a grey beanie and grey and black, long-sleeved T-shirt.

Leave it to Ryan Gosling to smile at a passing pooch and stir up all kinds of feelings: jealousy, spitefulness, despair.

The actor, along with costar Rooney Mara, is currently spending long days on set for the untitled picture, and seemed to relax momentarily on Wednesday when a crew member brought over the dog between takes.
