Zac Efron found himself a trending Twitter topic on Friday after sparking plastic surgery rumors when he revealed an alleged new look that was buzzing social media over his ‘new face’.
The 33-year-old former Disney child star raised the alarm when he looked noticeably different during his participation in Earth Day! The Musical via Facebook on Thursdays.
Zac’s role in the clip came at 1:50 am where he started calling organizer Bill Nye a “ genius ” for the event, but fans may have been too distracted by his changing appearance to listen to what the High School Musical star had to say . .
A different look? Zac Efron has sparked plastic surgery rumors as he buzzes about his ‘new face’ on social media while appearing on Facebook on Thursday
There’s no suggestion that Zac has gone under the knife, but the noted fitness buff, who has undergone a few body transformations throughout his career, certainly has fans talking.
While some of the memes and comments were narrow-minded, other fans seemed genuinely surprised to see Zac with a slightly squarer jawline and puffiness around his face.
‘I refuse to believe this is Zac Efron,’ wrote one fan, while another added, ‘Zac Efron is one more plastic surgery appointment away from looking like TikTok’s square-jawed guy.’

The actor has certainly undergone a major body transformation throughout his career, after brushing up after his Disney days for a starring role in the Baywatch movie.
Last year, however, the actor revealed that he never wants to get back into his ripped physique from that 2017 film.
That was actually a really important time to do Baywatch because I realized that when I was done with that movie, I never want to be in that good shape again. Really. It was so difficult, ” he said in an interview.

While filming the comedy, he tweeted a glimpse of his routine: ‘9 days without carbs and sugar. Only organic grass-fed / free-range proteins and organic leafy vegetables. ‘
His trainer Patrick Murphy told Men’s Health, “I threw everything I had at him. Stability training, strength, mobility, athletic training. He did more than two days a day than anyone I’ve ever worked with. ‘
