Zac Efron, who has been in Hollywood for more than 15 years, has come clean about the cost of onscreen excellence.
In a Mens Health cover story, a High School Musical alum revealed that he suffered from a severe depressive episode as a result of his 2017 Baywatch diet and fitness regimen.
Efron explained that something about that experience caused me to lose consciousness. Ultimately they attributed it to taking way too many diuretics for way too long, and it ruined something.
Due to his exercise regimen and work schedule, Efron admitted to overtraining and eating the same three meals daily.
Efron reflected on that Baywatch appearance. It's just too little water in the skin. Like, its fake; it's CGId. I'll do that again. I'd much prefer an additional two to three percent body fat.
Efron began to reclaim his self six months after filming, and even then, he continued to seek solitude.
The Greatest Beer Run Ever star continued. What if I just say, Fuck it and let myself go? For all of the reasons I thought it would be incredible, I was just depressed. My body would not function correctly. I just did not feel alive.
Efron became vegan for a short time before battling his self-proclaimed agoraphobia. By April 2021, rumors of Efron undergoing plastic surgery took the internet by storm. Even Efron's mother called him to ask if he went under the knife. Now, Efron shares that he shattered his jaw and his masseter muscles were injured as a result of the injury. Efron still undergoes physical therapy to repair his cheeks.
The masseters have just grew, according to Efron. They have just become extremely large.
If I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think I do, I would not be able to do this work, according to him.
