Do you dream of having Zac Efron and his incredible abs mysteriously show up at your door to serenade you as you go about your day? Well, put the kibosh on those dreams for the time being, because we have some terrible, terrible news for you: His mouth is currently wired shut.
According to E! Online, the actor slipped on a puddle of water at the entrance of his house in LA on Sunday, tragically breaking his beautiful, chiseled jaw. And it gets worse—he also suffered a gash that required stitches to seal back up. No word on exactly which part of his anatomy got gashed, but whatever it is, we hope it heals quickly. Poor guy.
Zac’s plans to promote his next flick, the Animal House-esque That Awkward Moment, have been put on hold while he recovers; it’s not due out until January 31, 2014, so at least he’s got a month or two before he’s got to get back to work. Check out the trailer here:
He’ll also be seen in Neighbors in May. It’s going to be a busy year for Zac—as long as he can manage to avoid any and all puddles in the near future.
Get well soon, Zac!
