Who is Kyle Sandilands? Zac Efron's longtime pal says actor didn't get plastic surgery: 'He's so good-looking'
'I actually think he has had dental surgery, not plastic surgery. That's why he is swollen [along his jaw]. If you've had your wisdom teeth taken out, did you look like this?'
Zac Efron raised eyebrows on April 23 when he looked markedly different while taking part in 'Earth Day! The Musical' on Facebook Watch.
Addressing concerns whether the Hollywood hunk had undergone plastic surgery, one of Efron's closest friends has declared there's no way the 33-year-old 'Baywatch' star has secretly gone under the knife.
Australian radio host Kyle Sandilands has known Efron for years and gave his two cents on 'The Kyle and Jackie O Show' on April 30. "I would know if he'd had any plastic surgery," the 49-year-old told his co-host Jackie 'O' Henderson, adding that "of course" his pal hadn't had any work done. According to Sandilands, there was no reason for the 'High School Musical' star to have surgery as he's "already so good-looking."
"It's like getting a Picasso and having a kid finger paint all over it. Why bother?" he joked.
Sandilands' comments came just days after celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Anthony Youn offered his own remarks on Efron's all-new look. Taking to TikTok, Dr Youn claimed Efron may have had dental surgery but not plastic surgery as is being speculated. "Everyone is talking about Zac Efron and how strange he looks. Has he had surgery to reshape his jawline, Botox or fillers?" Dr Youn began. "I don't think so. I actually think he has had dental surgery, not plastic surgery. That's why he is swollen [along his jaw]. If you've had your wisdom teeth taken out, did you look like this?"
This came after Efron was trending on Twitter last week over surgery rumors after revealing a seemingly new appearance. The former Disney star made fans wonder as he looked considerably different during his appearance on 'Earth Day! The Musical' via Facebook. The Hollywood star appeared at the event to call organizer Bill Nye a "genius" for making it happen. However, fans appeared to be too distracted by Efron's new look to listen to what he really had to say.
While there's no confirmation that Efron has gone under the knife, the speculation was warranted considering he's a known fitness fanatic who has been through quite a few body transformations in his acting career. He certainly made serious gains for a starring role in 'Baywatch' movie after his Disney days, according to the Daily Mail.
Last year, however, the actor said he never wanted to get back to his ripped 2017 physique.
"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," he explained in an interview at the time. "You're working with almost no wiggle room, right? You've got things like water under your skin that you're worried about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. S**t like that it's just not... it's just stupid," he added.
