Zac Efron is on the October 2022 issue of Men’s Health Mag and the actor chats about his career, health and upcoming film, The Greatest Beer Run Ever. But Zefron also addressed his April 2021 appearance in Earth Day! The Musical, a photo which quickly went viral and made people scream “THAT BITCH GOT BOTCHED!”.But Zac, 34, tells the magazine that after a fall in his home, he:
“…[smacked] his chin on the granite corner of a fountain,” losing consciousness and awaking to his chin bone hanging off his face.”
He went on to explain that, as a result of his injury, the muscles on the inside of his face and jaw have to compensate for his masseters muscles, which are “used for chewing [and] work together with the other muscles of the face.
“He works with a specialist and does physical therapy to mediate this, he says, but in Australia [during quarantine] he took some time off from that, too. ‘The masseters just grew,’ he says, shrugging. ‘They just got really, really big.'”
Wow. Sounds painful and very, very real. We’re glad Zac’s face has settled and we can go back to enjoying his non-‘Handsome Squidward’-ified mug. See? Being rich doesn’t always mean you’re happier. You can trip and hit your face on a gushing fountain in your gardens and BAM! No chin.
