It’ll be a few weeks before we see Zac Efron smile again! The actor broke his jaw over the weekend after accidentally falling outside his home and has had to have his mouth temporarily wired shut.
The incident happened when the 26-year-old slipped on a puddle of water that he didn’t see. Besides just the broken jaw, Zac also suffered a gash that required stitches.
He’s expected to make a full recovery, but the accident will put a botch on his plans to promote his new film That Awkward Moment, which is due out in January.
This injury just adds onto what’s been a fairly rough year for Zac. In the spring, he secretly completed rehab for substance abuse, and has since had to retire from his partyboy lifestyle, keeping a much lower profile. However, he recently went out with friends at Hollywood hotspot Chateau Marmont for his 26th birthday, and has been to a few promotional events for the upcoming movie.
