Zac Efron’s mouth wired shut from broken jaw

Posted at 6:42 PM, Nov 13, 2013
Sad news for Zac Efron fans who loved his jawline the most: The actor is now recovering after breaking that jaw over the weekend.

According to E! News, the 26-year-old actor slipped in a puddle of water outside of his Los Angeles-area home on Sunday. The nasty fall left the actor with a broken jaw and a cut severe enough to require stitches.

The actor’s mouth is now wired shut, although he is expected to make a full recovery.

While he heals, though, promotional work for his upcoming comedy, “That Awkward Moment,” have been put on hold. (It’s a good thing the studio has already released a trailer featuring Efron totally in the nude — they should be able to get lots of mileage from that alone.)

Efron’s “That Awkward Moment” co-star, Michael B. Jordan, isn’t worried about this shake-up in their plans. “He’s going to be OK,” the “Fruitvale” star said at GQ’s Men of the Year party on Tuesday. “He’s tough.”

That’s good to hear, as this year has been a difficult one for Efron. The news spread in September that the actor had been in rehab.
