After crashing into a granite fountain, the star revealed how he lost consciousness before eventually waking up with “his chin bone hanging off his face.”

Fans were baffled by Zac’s appearance
Post-accident, Zac recalled the traumatic healing process during which his masseter muscles swelled to an abnormal size. “The masseters just grew. They just got really, really big,” he said.
Fans were quick to spot Zac’s changed appearance, with many suspecting that the actor had undergone plastic surgery.
Back in April 2021, the High School Musical actor started trending on Twitter after he appeared in a Facebook Watch video entitled Earth Day! The Musical. Noticing his heavier than usual jawline, his fans flocked to social media to share their disbelief.

“I refuse to believe this is Zac Efron,” wrote one, whilst a second penned: “I think people are photoshopping him to look worse.”
“He just looks like he may have a sinus infection and a sore tooth,” wrote a third, and a fourth added: “Zac Efron is naturally attractive, I don’t know why he keeps messing up his face with cosmetic surgery.”
