The 28-year-old actor opened up about the experience and how he was able to keep it a secret from the girls while making an appearance on the Today Show.
Zac said that beforehand he was “kind of getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet.”
“They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think,” Zac explained, who could be seen tearing up during the medal ceremony before meeting the girls.
He added, “Their story just blew my mind. When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, ‘What kind of guy am I if I don’t show up?’”
