“I Almost Died,” Zac Efron Reveals the Truth Behind Plastic Surgery Rumors

6 months ago

In early 2021, the internet was abuzz with talk about Zac Efron’s changing appearance. Many noticed that he looked quite different from before, sparking rumors of possible plastic surgery. After more than a year of speculation, Zac Efron addressed the rumors and shed light on what really happened.

Why Zac Efron chose not to clarify the rumors sooner

Zac Efron’s new look was first seen in April 2021 during his appearance on “Earth Day! The Musical”, a show produced by Bill Nye. Even though the event was about the environment, Efron’s brief appearance grabbed the attention. Fans started coming up with theories, with plastic surgery being the most talked-about.

However, it wasn’t until September 2022 that Zac Efron finally spoke up about the situation. He revealed that he wasn’t paying attention to all the rumors because he didn’t read the Internet much. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he said, “My mom told me. I don’t really read the Internet, so I don’t really [care].”

Zac Efron then explained what had led to his changed appearance. It wasn’t due to surgery but rather a fall he had at home. He slipped while running and hurt his chin badly. As he recovered, his chewing muscles grew, leading to changes in his jawline.

Despite his challenges and the rumors that followed, Zac Efron kept a positive attitude. He even joked, “It was funny. It sucks. I almost died, but we’re good.”

This whole experience made Zac Efron realize that it’s best not to focus too much on what people say online. He shared, “If I cared too much about what others thought of me, I wouldn’t be able to do my job.”

The rumors didn’t really bother Zac Efron because he didn’t want it to affect his professional and personal life. Zac Efron instead focuses on what matters, like spending time with his siblings.
