Zac Efron puts out the fire surrounding plastic surgery rumors

For months, former High School Musical actor Zac Efron has been a hot topic online due to his sudden change in appearance.

Many speculated that he underwent plastic surgery, but Efron finally broke his silence on the topic.

Zac Efron speaks

Zach, 34, Efron is back on Red’s carpet for the first time in over three years to promote his latest movie, “The Greatest Beer Run Ever.”

At the event, he was asked about the online world’s gossip about jaw changes.

Efron has announced that he is aware of rumors about cosmetic surgery.

“My mom told me,” he shared. “I never really read the internet, so, I don’t really care.”

2013 incident

Regarding his plastic surgery rumors, Zac Efron has revealed that he broke his jaw after slipping into a puddle at his home.

The actor put a wire in his jaw and stitched multiple times to repair his damage.

Efron said the rumors about his plastic surgery were funny, but he said of the accident:

“It sucks. I almost died, but we’re good.”

The altered jaw

Last year, Zac Efron’s face caught the internet’s attention when he appeared on Bill Nighy’s Earth Day special.

In the latest issue of Men’s Health, the High School Musical alumni shed light on the altered look of their jaws.

“When I ask him about this, he tells me that the masseter muscles, used for chewing, work together with the other muscles of the face “like a symphony,”” the piece reads.

“When he was injured, the muscles on the inside of his face and jaw had to compensate.”

“He works with a specialist and does physical therapy to mediate this, he says, but in Australie he took some time off from that, too.”

“”The masseters just grew,” he says, shrugging. “They just got really, really big.””

Online chatter

According to Zac Efron, he usually avoids social media except when promoting his projects.

There was a lot of hype online, but the actor didn’t mind.

“If I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think that I do, I definitely wouldn’t be able to do this work,” Efron told Men’s Health.

Next project

Zac Efron will star in The Greatest Beer Run Ever alongside Bill Murray and Russell Crowe.

The film is a biographical action-comedy based on the book of the same name.

Efron plays John Donahue, who travels to Vietnam in 1967 to deliver beer to his war-fighting childhood friends.

The Greatest Beer Run premieres on Apple TV+ on September 30th.
