Fans Think Zac Efron Has Had Plastic Surgery

A Family Affair premiered on Netflix on Friday. It stars Zac Efron, 36, Joey King, 24, and Nicole Kidman, 56.

One clip shows Zac recording Joey choking on a grape and running into a doorframe, which causes her to pass out. After the scene wraps, Zac then pans the camera around to show Nicole Kidman, who is laughing hysterically at Joey’s scene.

While it is great to see the three actors working together and having a good time, many people couldn’t help but notice a significant change in the way Zac Efron looks.

“What happened to your face, Zac?” one person asked in the comments. “Plastic surgery and aging … oh but smoking probably. They can’t fool us,” another person wrote.

However, not everyone took to the comment section to hate on the actor. Several people jumped in the comments to defend the Hairspray star.

Apparently, Zac Efron had to undergo surgery after falling a couple of years ago. In October 2022, the former Disney Channel star spoke about the ordeal in an interview with Men’s Health.

What Happened To Zac Efron’s Chin?

He revealed that he shattered his jaw running around his mansion in Los Angeles. Zac had socks on and slipped, hitting the corner of a fountain, which caused him to pass out. When he came to, he realized that his chin bone was “hanging off” his face.

That being said, Zac shared that the masseter muscles in his face began to compensate for the injury to his chin. This caused the muscles to grow in size over the years. “The masseters just grew. They just got really, really big,” he said.

The 17 Again star has adamantly denied that he’s had any plastic surgery done when people bring up how different he looks.

Of course, this isn’t the first time fans have wondered whether or not Zac Efron has had work done to maintain his looks. In December, he turned up for an interview on Today with sunglasses on. He attempted to get ahead of the rumors then, sharing that he had an eye infection, which is why he was wearing the glasses.

He also made major changes to his physical appearance for his role in the movie The Iron Claw. Zac bulked up quite a bit to be able to portray WWE star Kevin von Erich. He maintains that none of his transformations have been a result of plastic surgery though.
