Zac Efron’s ‘Dad Bod’ Has Twitter in a Meltdown

Zac Efron has undergone a bit of transformation in his more than a decade on the silver screen. From weedy basketball jock in High School Musical, to shredded athlete in Baywatch, the actor’s impressive body has garnered more accolades than his impressive body of work. But his latest transformation shows a maturity that has fans losing their minds on Twitter.

Down to Earth is the new Netflix docu-series that sees the star joined by wellness expert Darin Olien for a globe-trotting health and sustainable living adventure. The trailer sees Efron hitting a wellness retreat in the Amazon, diving into a lagoon in Iceland and eating an assortment of outrageous and culturally diverse foods. In all fairness, the show looks pretty good, but that’s not what has viewers talking. As usual, it’s Zac Efron’s body that is copping all the attention.

Twitter users are blowing up over his new ‘Dad-bod’. Long gone are the ultra-shredded, sub-5 per cent body fat Efron days, all hail the beefy new ex-Baywatch star.

Look, the reality is that Zac Efron’s ‘Dad-bod’ is far from the overblown, chunky physique we generally equate to the phrase. The man is obviously still extremely fit and with a few extra pounds on his frame, we’ll bet the former High School Musical star is stronger than ever. In fact, it’s no surprise Efron has added some bulk to the chassis. He previously noted that his transformation for Baywatch was incredibly difficult, mentally taxing and something he ‘never wanted to do again’ in his life. What is a surprise, however, is the lumberjack beard he’s added.

A harsh fade and thick, full growth has never looked so good, according to Twitter. Turns out Efron’s new look is more ‘Daddy’ than ‘Dad-bod’. Check out these thirsty tweets from fans.
