'The Iron Claw' is ideally about the Von Erich family who were a professional wrestling family. However, the family does have a haunting past as a series of bad events happened to them one after the other. Regardless, Efron sported a noteworthy new hairdo as he stood shirtless with a towel around his waist while checking his phone. It is a typical '80s look and fans are not complaining about it at all. While some praise Efron's toned body, others imagine how perfectly he would play 'Wolverine' for the upcoming generation.

However, during a recent interview with Men's Health, Zac Efron shared his thought on his "unattainable 'Baywatch' look," he said he "fell into a pretty bad depression, for a long time" after recovering from the rigorous training for that project.

"That Baywatch look, I don't know if that's really attainable," he said. "There's just too little water in the skin. Like, it's fake; it looks CGI'd. And that required Lasix, powerful diuretics, to achieve. So I don't need to do that. I much prefer to have an extra, you know, 2 to 3 percent body fat." Efron adds, "At one point, that was a dream of mine - what it would be like to not have to be in shape all the time? What if I just say, 'F**k it' and let myself go? So I tried it, and I was successful. And for all the reasons I thought it would be incredible, I was just miserable. My body would not feel healthy; I just didn't feel alive. I felt bogged down and slow."
