Zac Efron Opens Up About His Life Before Entering Rehab

Zac Efron discussed his stint in rehab and what his life was like before getting help while on Running Wild with Bear Grylls.

“The challenging part was never the work…it was sort of the in-between work. The socials aspects. Everywhere you go to an extent there is press,” the 26-year-old actor said.

He detailed to Bear that there were press everywhere and “it can be very confusing.”

“Pretty soon, you need a social lubricant. It was getting to the point where I was caring less about the work and caring more about the weekend. I couldn’t wait to go out. And sort of let loose and have fun. But when Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, then I was like ‘ugh this is bad.’”

    Wish him the best

    If he was using drugs alone at home and using them to go anywhere he is a full out drug addict and he is back in the social club scene and his old friends wayy too soon . If he hasn’t caved yet he will soon. He is not superman and the minute something goes wrong in his life he will want to ease the pain. He is not strong enough, to be back with the old influences and friends he partied so hard with.

    Plus that Michelle is a nut job. something is very wrong with her , she seems mentally disturbed . Him even wanting to be around her seems like he must have something wrong with him to find her that appealing.
    Won’t even go there with her man looks. What is wrong with Zac?

    @Lauren: So do I . For this hour I saw the man I admire ( he was beyond awesome) and will always wish him all life’s blessings. Hope he gets back to program and stays strong.

    @Sad 4 Zac I get it, you’re very harsh but I get it. Just hope he keeps it together.

  • Ok

    Love you Zac, I really wish you the best. Seeing your old friends again is not going to help you stay away from needing a social lubricant.

  • Ok

    @IMO I understand what you are saying. Last night was the Zac we love and the way we want him to be again.
    With God’s help and the help of those who truly love him he can be that Zac again.

    I hope you fight your demons,Zac. I’m rooting for you!

    @Sad 4 Zac: i agree with the fact that he went back to that type of scene way too quickly but hes grown so theres not much to be done – not even his parents can do much when he is closer to 30 than his tween years. its worrying tho because ive heard way too much crap about RR to believe zac is sober.
