Once appearing only in guest roles in renowned TV Shows such as ER, The Guardian, Firefly, and many more, Zac Efron’s career took off when he played his iconic role of Troy Bolton in the High School Musical trilogy and many more teen-specific movies. Though he gained fame and recognition for his role in teen films, he shifted his attention to more mature roles to establish himself as an A-tier actor and showcase his acting range.
Zac Efron has been a part of several hit movies over the years, not limited to one genre of films. While he is outstanding in portraying his roles, he is immensely dedicated to undergoing massive physical transformation so that he can transform himself into the character. Efron’s upcoming film The Iron Claw has surprised the fans as he looks unrecognizable in his new avatar.
Zac Efron’s Leaves Fans in Shock With His Inhuman Transformation
Zac Efron’s upcoming film The Iron Claw tells the real-life story of the Von Erich family, a dynasty of professional wrestlers from Texas that had enormous success in the 1980s, leaving an indelible mark in the wrestling ring, as they popularised the Iron Claw professional wrestling hold.
The 17 Again actor is going viral as he recently appeared on Entertainment Weekly’s cover, and fans are in shock, as they double-check him because his physical transformation looks absolutely unreal. While his chiseled physique speaks for themselves, his uneven jawline is what got the attention of the fans. When Entertainment Weekly posted a clip of the actor, fans were surprised by his new look.
A fan was so surprised by Zac Efron’s transformation, that they felt they were hallucinating.
“Wow! He looks soooo different! It doesn’t even look like him. 🙁 maybe I’m trippin.”
Another fan comments that it looks like there’s a Chad filter on him.
“I keep thinking there’s a Chad filter on his face. Jeez.”
Another fan commented that Efron’s face is not moving at all.
“Damn his face doesn’t even move now.”
Another user could not believe their eyes, as they asked about his face.
“What happened to his face?”
Another fan mocked the actor, as they stated that Zac Efron is preparing for a Shrek live-action film.
“Shrek live action? Omg”
The Baywatch actor’s unreal and uneven jawline is the result of an accident that he had 10 years ago which had shattered his jaw, and the accident was nearly fatal. Though he dismissed the rumors of plastic surgery, he shared how his jaw got so massive.
Zac Efron Talks About His Jaw’s Growth
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.
The Iron Claw is set to hit the theatres on 23rd December 2023.
