Watch: Zac Efron Opens Up About his 'Baywatch' Ripped Bod

Friday Apr 3, 2020

Zac Efron appeared on the popular YouTube series "Hot Ones," where celebs eat spicy chicken wings during an interview, opening up about his ripped body for the 2017 comedy "Baywatch," which also stars Dwayne Johnson.

Surprisingly, Efron was dismissive of his body, saying he "never want[s] to be in that good of shape again."

This isn't the first time the "Beach Bum" star has talked about his "Baywatch" bod. Last year, he appeared on the "Ellen" show and said his workout for the film was extremely specialized and not something he wants to aspire to, adding his body at the time was "unrealistic."

"It's a little bigger than me. That's too big," he said at the time. "For guys, that's unrealistic, I'm telling you. I got very big and buff for that movie, but I don't want people to think that's the best way to be.

"Be your size. I don't want to glamorize this," Efron continued.

Ellen then pulled up his shirt and joked about his current abs.

"But this is so easy!" she said.

On "Hot Ones," Efron was promoting his new Quibi series "Killing Zac Efron" where he tries to survive in Papa New Guinea. Efron recently made headlines when he was rushed to the hospital for a serious emergency while filming the reality show.

"Very thankful to everyone who has reached out. I did get sick in Papua New Guinea but I bounced back quick and finished an amazing 3 weeks in P.N.G," Efron said in October 2019 along with a picture of himself smiling and waving amid a group of local children.
