Zac Efron lost weight after accident. He was a teen idol in the early 2000s with roles in Summerland and Hairspray shed twelve pounds following breaking his jaw. The twenty six year old had to have his jaw wired shut following a fall in September says that the six weeks after the accidents was hard as he wasn’t aloud to eat solid foods
”It was pretty gnarly. ”I was drinking foods solidly for six weeks – only liquid foods. It sucked…I lost, like, 10-12 pounds.”
Despite the painful injury, the ‘That Awkward Moment’ actor insists his mishap was
”kind of cool” because he fell after slipping on water from his indoor fountain.
He told TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel:
”I was running through my house and I slipped and fell on my face.
”Let me start over, because the story starts kind of cool. I have a fountain in my house. That’s kind of dope, right? So I was running through and slipped on water and hit my chin on the fountain in my house. It’s not a big fountain, but it’s a fountain in my house.”
Although he endued this injury, Efron says he feels better than ever. He said:
”I’m in the best place I’ve ever been. I’ve never been this happy before. Things are good.”
