One year after fueling speculation about plastic surgery, Zac Efron has finally cleared the air regarding his facial transformation.

The actor claimed that he broke his jaw while running in his house wearing socks in his October 2022 cover story for Men’s Health, which was released on Wednesday.

Efron, 34, claimed he slipped, collided with a fountain’s corner, fell unconscious, and when he awoke, his “chin bone… hanging off” his face.

The “High School Musical” star worked with a physical therapist to stop his facial muscles from growing during his recovery because they had grown “really, really big” to make up for the injury.

The masseter [muscles] just grew when Efron took a break in Australia, according to the former Disney Channel star, who previously broke his jaw in 2013.

Fans first noticed Zac Efron’s altered appearance in April 2021, which sparked speculation that he had undergone surgery.

His friend Kyle Sandilands denied that Efron had any work done the following month.

On “The Kyle and Jackie O” radio program in May 2021, Sandilands joked, “It’s like getting a Picasso and having a kid finger paint all over it.” Why even bother? I would be able to tell if he had any cosmetic surgery.

Efron’s mother, Starla Baskett, informed her son about the rumor of plastic surgery because he prefers not to use social media.

The “17 Again” star said to Men’s Health, “I definitely wouldn’t be able to do this work if I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think I do.”

When he discontinued physical therapy last year, Efron acknowledged that his masseter muscles grew to be “really, really big.”

More accidents were mentioned by Efron in other parts of the interview, though they happened while he was training, including a dislocated shoulder, torn ACL, broken wrist, and blown-out back.

The “Hairspray” actor worked out frequently while filming “Baywatch,” but he now follows a mindful exercise regimen that includes yoga, stretching, and self-massage.

The “Baywatch” actor spoke candidly about his issues with insomnia, depression, and agoraphobia.

Efron told the magazine that the experience left him with “insomnia” and a “dark depression,” adding that the 2017 film “burned [him] out.”

The “Down to Earth with Zac Efron” star recalled, “I had a really hard time recentering. I didn’t feel better until six months after filming was finished. In the end, they concluded that it was caused by abusing diuretics for an extended period of time.

Efron noted that he also suffers from agoraphobia.

He said, describing “people in large groups” as a “trigger” for his anxiety disorder, which is characterized by a severe fear of going into crowded places, “I just don’t go out.”
