The star, who looked absolutely torn in the film, said in a new interview this week that he was training so hard and taking diuretics that he became depressed.

Zac also said he began to suffer from insomnia and felt “exhausted” due to the intense training and filming schedule.

He said men’s health: ‘This Baywatch look, I don’t know if it’s really achievable.’

“There’s just too little water in the skin. Like, it’s fake; it looks like CGI.’

Zac said he took Lasix, a diuretic, to help him achieve his ripped look in the film, which ultimately took a toll on his mental health.

He added: “I started developing insomnia and fell into a pretty bad depression for a long time. Something about this experience burned me.

“I had a lot of trouble refocusing. In the end, they assigned too many diuretics for too long, and that messed something up.

Zac previously told the publication in 2020 that he skipped carbs to lose weight for Baywatch.

“When I shot Baywatch, I was carb-free for about six months,” he said.

“I almost lost my mind. You need it. I still can’t figure out how this carb and protein diet is the exact opposite of what a trainer ever taught me.

According Health lineZac trained with the help of a personal trainer and did a series of grueling workouts to get in top shape for Baywatch.

‘Efron’s Baywatch movie training program involved a constantly evolving approach, involving full body workouts, two-day splits, three-day splits, power training, strength training, stability and balance, lifeguard training, hiking, biking, obstacle course training, and more,” said her trainer Patrick Murphy.

The actor confessed that it was actually a nasty accident at home that caused the massive transformation of his face.

In a new interview with Men’s Health Magazinethe actor recalled how he put on a pair of socks while running home, which caused him to bang his chin against a granite fountain.

The star explained that he passed out only to wake up with “his chin hanging from his face”.

Efron said that when he was injured, the masseter muscles inside his face and jaw then “compensated” for his injury, causing them to grow – hence his remarkable transformation.

He says that explains why he looked so different back then. “The masseters have just grown up. They just got really, really big.
