Zac Efron Never Wants That 'Baywatch' Body Ever Again

Zac Efron is opening up about the amazing shape he got in while starring in the Baywatch movie and he’s explaining why he never wants to get his body in that shape again.

The 32-year-old actor opened up in the latest episode of Hot Ones, where celebs answer questions while eating spicy chicken wings.

“That was actually a really important time to do Baywatch because I realized that when I was done with that movie, I don’t ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really. It was so hard,” Zac said in the interview. “You’re working with almost no wiggle room, right? You’ve got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. S–t like that it’s just not … it’s just stupid.”

Zac‘s not totally turning down the possibility of getting into that shape again though.

“I’m happy that it worked, I’m happy that it got me through it. I may do it again if it was something worthwhile but we’ll wait till it gets to that,” Zac said. “I’m good. Take care of your heart, take care of your brain and you’re good.”
