Zac Efron, Jaw, Skateboarding, Beverly Hills


Zac Efron broke his jaw, but his perfect jawline, thank heavens, is still perfect.

On Tuesday, Nov. 26, the actor was photographed for the first time since he slipped in a puddle of water at the entrance of his L.A.-area home in mid-November. The 26-year-old That Awkward Moment star had to have his mouth wired shut during his recovery, but as you can see from this skateboarding shot, Zac appears to be bouncing back from his injury quite well.

Of course, the former Disney star wasn't going to let anything—even a broken jaw—keep him from getting a workout in. Just days after his fall, he was spotted lifting weights at the gym. His Hairspray director Adam Shankman told People the actor was "in great spirits" despite having "to eat through a straw on a syringe" because of his wired-shut jaw.

Michael B. Jordan, Zac's friend and That Awkward Moment costar, confirmed Zac's resiliency to E! News. "He's good," the former Parenthood star said. "He's going to be OK…He's tough."

Tough, yes, and not one to complain! On Thanksgiving, Zac tweeted holiday wishes to his fans, adding, "So many things to be grateful for."

Here's hoping he got to enjoy some Turkey—not in liquid form—on the holiday! And we're certainly thankful Zac is going to make a full recovery from his painful jaw break.
