Zac Efron’s Called His Baywatch Body ‘Stupid,’ But Reveals Now It Totally Messed Him Up

Modern action movies often come with the caveat that actors must be in extremely good shape to film. Dwayne Johnson and some other action stars regularly work out to keep themselves in incredible shape, but others do not enjoy going to such extremes. In fact, The Rock’s Baywatch co-star Zac Efron really put himself through the ringer to get himself extremely fit for that film. It turns out that maybe wasn’t the best thing.

Everybody from The Rock to Alexandria Daddario had to get in great shape for Baywatch. Zac Efron has previously spoken before about how he now feels his Baywatch body was “stupid” because he felt it required so much work that it should be seen an unobtainable. However, in a new interview with Men’s Health, Efron talks more about what the work did to him not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, and it was not good.

I started to develop insomnia and I fell into a pretty bad depression, for a long time. Something about that experience burned me out. I had a really hard time recentering. Ultimately they chalked it up to taking way too many diuretics for way too long, and it messed something up.
