Fans could not stop talking about Zac Efron’s new appearance over the weekend, but did he get some kind of surgery like people to say, or is it all just rumors?! Let’s get into what we know…
It’s no secret that Zac Efron is and always will be a total zaddy. We loved him back in his High School Musical days… as a blonde… as a rugged mountain man… basically, we LOVE ZAC EFRON Period.
In a recent appearance in Facebook’s “Earth Day! The Musical,” fans noticed that Zac was seemingly debuting a new look and a JAW-DROPPING new look at that. During his chat with Bill Nye, The Science Guy, many people pointed out that Zac seemed to have a new sculpted appearance. “A big budget Broadway musical spectacular? Bill, wow, I mean i knew you were smart but I think you’re a genius.”
As soon as that clip started to circulate, the memes flooded Twitter with people comparing Zac’s new appearance to handsome Squidward, The Weeknd in the “Save Your Tears” music video, and human Shrek.
Others went as far as saying that Zac “ruined his face” with plastic surgery and fillers. Harsh! I know… but exaggerated memes aside, something is visibly different about his face, specifically his jawline and chin.
But many fans also came to Zac’s defense, saying that he is still stunning no matter what and that they feel bad for him because “people can’t accept that he’s not going to look 21 for the rest of his life.”
All of this got Zac trending on Twitter, with hundreds of thousands of tweets rolling in over the weekend. But there may be some potential explanations for Zac’s appearance.
One person pointed out that Zac broke his jaw back in 2013, and his appearance could have something to do with his previous injuries. The fan wrote, “Y’all do remember that Zac Efron broke his jaw right? What happened to leading with kindness? Y’all forget so quickly.”
And they followed up, saying, “For those of you saying it was 2013 … doesn’t matter. Point is he had a medical procedure done on his jaw. It may have looked normal to you afterwards but you don’t know what he felt or thought.”
And while Zac had a follow-up surgery on his jaw after his 2013 injury, Dr. Youn, plastic surgeon and famous TikToker, had another explanation for Zac’s face. “I actually think he’s had dental surgery, not plastic surgery. That’s why he’s swollen in these areas. If you’ve had your wisdom teeth taken out, did you look like this?” And he’s totally right! I haven’t had my wisdom teeth out, but we can lean on Dixie D’Amelio for a reminder of what that can look like… “Literally, I’m fine, let me eat anything.” Thank you for that iconic moment, Dixie.
And over the years, Zac himself has been honest about not caring as much about his appearance anymore as he once did. Last year, he appeared on Hot Ones and revealed that after Baywatch, he was no longer focused on being in tip-top shape. “I realized that like when I was done with that movie, I don’t ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really.”
He revealed how hard it was to have to be “perfect” for that movie and how he no longer prioritized looks in that way.“You’re working with almost no wiggle room, right. You’ve got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. S**t like that it’s just like not … it’s just stupid.” So based on all this info, it seems like Zac may have had some procedure done, whether it be dental or otherwise.
But either way, we love him no matter what, and if he did want to get plastic surgery, he could do what he wants; it’s his face! You do you, Zac. Zac himself hasn’t spoken out on any of this, but we’ll keep you posted if he does.
