According to RadarOnline, Zac Efron reportedly did a stint of rehab earlier this year due to troubles with alcohol. Efron was seen at the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of ‘Parkland,’ his forthcoming ensemble about the JFK assassination that is due out in theaters October 4th. The reports indicate that Efron was looking good as he told reporters he’s feeling happy, healthy, and ready to focus on his life and work.
Efron, 25, was another case of a teen sensation turned up-and-coming Hollywood actor who struggled with substance abuse. The major difference with Zac is he wasn’t in the news much for crude behavior like some of his colleagues. Efron reportedly checked himself into rehab quietly without the public knowing. His stay in the clinic was unknown, but was completed about five months ago.
Efron is set to appear in a few more movies this year, and by all accounts seems to have recovered nicely from whatever was troubling him. When asked about all the attention he received, the actor calmly said you never get use to it, but “it’s cool though”. You can catch Efron in ‘That Awkward Moment’ and ‘Neighbors’ sometime this year. Here’s to a strong recovery!
