During an interview with Men’s Health, Zac Efron stated how in 2013 he had a fatal accident when he was running through his house wearing socks. He slipped and hit his chin against the granite corner of a fountain. He lost consciousness, and when he regained his senses, his chin bone was hanging off his face.

Efron clarified that he had undergone physical therapy to recover. However, some of his facial and jaw muscles had to work harder to recover from the injury, especially his masseters. As a result, “The masseters just grew,” he says, shrugging. “They just got really, really big.” He added that he learned about Jaw Gate from his mother when she called him to ask if he had plastic surgery. While he appreciates his fans on social media, he avoids using it to survive in the long run.
