Zac Efron has appeared on Bear Grylls’ new show Running Wild with Bear Grylls in which he opened up about his time in rehab.
Efron said the press did little to help his addiction with alcohol.
“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.”
Speaking on the TV show, Zac said he needed a “social lubricant” to help deal with the pressures that fame brought: “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.’”
Zac didn’t hold back when it came to stunts on the show either, the brave actor went from eating a can of worms, to climbing a cliff side!
We rather you than us Zac!
