Zac Efron has stepped out on the red carpet for the first time in several years after recently opening up about a grim chin injury which saw his face ‘transformed’.

The 34-year-old actor made an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival overnight to promote his new movie, The Greatest Beer Run Ever.

The Greatest Showman star opted for a smart grey checked suit and black polo shirt for his first premiere in three years, as he smiled for the camera.

His outing comes after the star addressed ongoing speculation about his face, after his appearance in an April 2021 clip had people suggesting he’d had plastic surgery.

Zac explained that his appearance was in fact due to a horrific injury, after he slipped and smacked his chin into a granite fountain. He revealed the hit knocked him out and when he woke up his chin bone was ‘hanging off his face’.

The actor explained to Men’s Health magazine: ‘The masseters [muscles in his jaw] just grew. They just got really, really big.’

The High School Musical star also explained that he didn’t know about the viral speculation about his changed appearance until his mum called and asked if he had gone under the knife.

‘If I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think I do,’ he told the magazine, ‘I definitely wouldn’t be able to do this work.’

As Zac walked the red carpet, he also posed with real John ‘Chickie’ Donohue, the inspiration behind his new biopic.

The Greatest Beer Run Ever follows John, a US Marine Corps veteran turned merchant who is tasked with sneaking to Vietnam during the war.

A group of New York residents who have lost loved ones in the war ask John to deliver messages from home – and most importantly beer – to their friends who are still alive and fighting in the war.

The Greatest Beer Run Ever is set to be released on AppleTV+ on September 30.
