Zac Efron is nearly unrecognizable in new promo for Dubai Tourism filmed after latest plastic surgery

I have the same reaction as Roger the Alien when he learned Meg Ryan wasn’t playing a burn victim in her latest film.

I think he was the most beautiful of his type of guy, when he was younger. A pretty AND handsome twink turned twunk. Not my type.

He is clearly body dysmorphic. As Lorry Hill points out, he has had surgery after surgery to change small things about his face. But many of the surgeries are quite radical considering how he good he looked to start. He had beautiful features and proportions to his face. Always. But he's fucked with most all of it. The majority of these implants and reshapings and lifts offered no improvement to his near perfect face or created other problems of asymmetry and screwed with his overall harmony of proportions.

A testament to just how well made he was to start with is that he is still not ugly. But he is crooked and out of balance and looks much older than his years. And almost anyone could tell that he's tampered with many parts of his facial structure, many times.

Lorry Hill sometimes misses the mark and over imagines what procedures a celebrity has done. But it takes a plastic surgery addict to know one and she's right about Zac. She's kind of a sweet, sad woman to be honest. But very knowledgeable, empathetic and well spoken. As she often says - the enemy of good is perfect.

Anyway could Zac Efron be any less SEXY? He gives off nothing but a neurotic kind of posing. He's not that perfectly cast handsome yet relatable young actor from Hairspray or High School musical anymore. He has quite nice tits though. But his face is FUCKED. And it's going to get worse and worse.

A few small repairs can turn into a the renovation that never ends.

I always think that Zac was a tampered with child actor who is straight and trying to prove that he's not a gay pretty boy. He keeps messing with his jawline and chin, since the very beginning. He does look more masculine as he ages but he was always handsome and it would have worked out anyway. As it is, he looks like some broken face pretty boy brawler deprived of moisturizer for a year. A cross between Mickey Rourke, Derek Hough and Hugh Jackman. I think he wants to be James Bond. This can never happen.

R70, Lorry put out a video - she recently caught Covid / Delta (her husband caught Covid / Delta as well). Lorry said that her husband was vaccinated; she was not vaxed. She said reason she was not vaxed was because she was advised not to (by her doctor). Her nose was having necrosis (nose job) and she did show a photo of herself with the necrosis (that was the reason for not vaccinating, I guess). Lorry said that her husband fared way better than she did. She now wishes she had just gone ahead and gotten the vax.

Lorry considers herself young and healthy. Anyway, I found her story compelling as a reason to get vaccinated. (You may still catch Covid, but you will have a better recovery.)

Efron is not having anti aging work done. He's fucking with his face in a truly dysmorphic way. Most people would be thrilled to look like Zac Efron. He keeps seeing need for improvements. But it's not about botox or fillers, he gets bones shaved down or moved, then later gets implants to make the shaved down areas more pronounced....then later changes the implant to a different shape or projection. This is the kind of microscopic revisions that people with dysmorphia engage in. He's already fucked up the symmetry of his features, even his lip line. He's always messing with his jaw and teeth and chin. The set of his mouth. He looks more manly now, but nowhere near as handsome. And he's unlikely to stop. The anti aging procedures and lifts and fillers and further hairline work will only escalate with age. It's a distorted head that he seems to want create. A bit more primordial than youth seaking. This will reach freak territory, very soon. He's practically anonymous as an actor. His obsessions might have been borne from HIS hyper focus of some features on screen - but he will continue getting work done even when he has no work. He needs really good therapy.

He's not very articulate and has never given an insightful or even humorous interview. He's a sick guy who still has some millions left to spend. So I'm sure that others enable him in his lack of introspection and his facial self destruction.

by Anonymousreply 98August 10, 2021 5:03 AM

Seth Rogen said that when he and Zac first met, early on in Zac's fame, that Efron said dejectedly "You probably hate me."

Actors turn down roles and accept others. Zac Efron has definitely tried to get away from projects that primarily appealed to girls and gays. Are you saying he couldn't have done numerous musicals between Hairspray and The Greatest Showman? He was attached to a Footloose remake from which he walked.

R187 Not every leading man in Hollywood is macho. Hugh Grant for example was apparently fine with his mostly female fans and heartthrob status and wisely stayed in comedy instead of trying to cross over into action films or whatever. But he was also older when he had his big break and apparently confident enough to do what he did best.

Other young actors might also have changed up their image since their teenage years, but focused more on interesting roles and quirky projects instead of trying to necessarily chase an image of masculinity (e.g. Heath Ledger, Daniel Radcliffe). I also think it's a disservice to the male audience to assume they all just want steroid pumped super macho guys - like R188 said, Tom Hanks is well respected among male film fans and he was never macho. Others with a large male following might have played roles that certainly appeal to a male audience, but aren't exactly square-jawed gym rats (e.g. Michael Fassbender or Joaquin Phoenix). They're all damn good actors though.

Of course not every leading man is macho, but Hugh Grant doesn't play Thor!!!!!

Most action hero roles go to chiseled, YOUNGER, lantern-jawed men. FFS stop with the reality denying. Some people commenting here are completely ignorant of how Hollywood works.

Like saying "no one would make a movie for Star ______" which actually DOES happen.

Also, various producers are always making musicals AND action films, and they always try to get the biggest stars in those fields to appear in their movies.

So saying "nobody would make a musical for Zac" is untrue and tons of musicals like GREATEST SHOWMAN would be happy to have him, even though it was not conceived specifically "for" Zac Efron.

For some unexplained reason he had his chin augmented years ago and the result was horrific (it became unnaturally squared). If you Google Zac and "broken jaw", you'll find that he vanished for nearly a year to heal his "broken jaw" (the story was fake along with the detail he provided in interviews related to the break). He did vanish for a long time, but it was really due to additional surgery undergone to fix the squared jaw, which they did to a great extent. R223 above shared a pic of his original chin.

[quote]Jeremy Renner, Marc Ruffalo, RDJ, All the Spidermen... There are plenty of examples to refute the idea that Zac had to "get with the program." As referenced upthread, Zac's cosmetic procedures have more to do with his lack of comfort in his own skin.

I would add Matt Damon to this list as well. He might have been more buff in the later movies, but while he was in good shape for The Bourne Identity, he did not do anything drastic to his appearance. In fact, that is partially why it worked, he did not look like some hulking, tough guy assassin.

I was hoping he’d go for more of the naturalist lifestyle after moving to Australia but I guess his demons followed him down under.

All Zac's ever had going for him was his looks. Every attempt at a serious dramatic role has been ignored or panned and the only time he seemed alive on screen in the past decade was in The Greatest Showman. He thrives in musicals, but they don't make enough of them these days for him to be the next Gene Kelly. If this was the MGM days, he'd have a much nicer go of it.

He tried the bro comedies, but he's not that funny, so a Paul Rudd-esque pretty boy to funny pretty boy arc isn't in the cards for him. He seems like a nice guy, but he's just very limited in terms of range. I fear he might be another cautionary tale about what happens when all someone has are looks going for them. One can't sustain a career on looks alone. It might not happen until you're 35, 40, or 50, but looks fade for everyone to some extent and, if that's all you have, you're going to be so lost.

To my taste he looks the best he has ever looked. He got rid of the delicate and boyish features to gain a strong, wide structure due to implants just like he wanted. His face isn't hollowed or too sharp either. It's very full, with a good tanned skin and finally some meat on him, unlike his early Jared Leto-ish plastic days around 2014. He started again with roids after his cycle for Baywatch but this time he's even more muscular, harder and bigger. Those juicy muscle tits with the puffy early gyno nipples are hypnotic and they look like Aaron Schock's. He looks like a Falcon gay porn star. And that's beautiful.
