When we heard that Zac Efron broke his jaw and had to have it sewn shut for six weeks, just like every other girl in the world, we hoped and prayed for a quick recovery – and that his face wouldn’t change a bit. Stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote That Awkward Moment, Zac talked about how the injury happened and how he ended up losing 10 lbs from his all-liquid diet!
Explaining the story, Zac said, “I was running through my house and I slipped and fell on my face. Let me start over, because the story starts kind of cool. I have a fountain in my house. That’s kind of dope, right? SO I was running through and slipped on water and hit my chin on the fountain in my house. It’s not a big fountain, but it’s a fountain in my house.”
Having to have his jaw sewn shut for six weeks meant that Zac would have to develop completely different eating habits during that time. “I was drinking foods for six weeks – only liquid foods. It sucked,” he said. “I lost, like, 10-12 pounds.” Well, we’re glad you back to normal, Zac!
