Fans confused by Zac Efron's appearance before remembering brutal accident

Fans confused by Zac Efron's appearance before remembering brutal accident

Zac Efron was being interviewed ahead of his highly anticipated performance in 'The Iron Claw'.

Fans are, yet again, confused by Zac Efron's appearance after watching a new interview about his upcoming film.

The 36-year-old - who has been in the limelight since the release of High School Musical in 2006 (god I feel old) - recently appeared in an Entertainment Weekly interview, promoting his new movie The Iron Claw.

You can take a look at the trailer below:

Incase you're wondering, The Iron Claw follows 'the true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who make history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s'.

"Through tragedy and triumph, under the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports," the synopsis reads.

People who have watched the trailer are blown away by Efron's physical transformation for the role.

One said: "Damn Zac Efron is a beast. I'm excited for his acting."

Another added: "Somebody needs to give Zac that He-Man role ASAP."

Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly on Tuesday (7 November), viewers were commenting on how different he looks from when he first broke into Hollywood.

I mean it has been nearly 20 years since HSM, but there you go.

"What happened to his face??" one person wrote, while another added: "Woah he looks like the villain in Avengers: Endgame."

"Damn his face doesn’t even move now," a third troll said.

However, fans of the actor reminded us of an accident Efron suffered, which shattered his jaw.

"Before everyone comments about it Z said that his jaw shattered in an accident and he had to get it restructured which is supposedly why it looks different now," someone wrote.

Previously opening up to Men's Health, the actor said he shattered his jaw while running in the house.

He said he fell while wearing slippery socks and hit his chin against a granite corner of a fountain, knocking himself out in the process.

After waking up, he said he realised his 'chin bone was hanging off his face'.

"The masseters just grew. They just got really, really big," he said.

Efron yet again looks to be in mad physical shape for his new movie.

Efron will play Kevin Von Erich in The Iron Claw and is joined on screen by Jeremy Allen White, who plays brother Kerry Von Erich, Harris Dickinson who is cast as fellow brother David Von Erich, and Stanley Simons as brother Mike Von Erich.

Kevin made a name for himself in World Class Championship Wrestling, where he sparked infamous feuds with the likes of Chris Adams, The Fabulous Freebirds, and Ric Flair.

Flair also makes an appearance in the film and is played by Aaron Dean Eisenberg.
