Get well soon, Zac.



Just as Zac Efron hits the comeback trail with Parkland, tragedy strikes: The actor has had his jaw wired shut after breaking it in a fall over the weekend. That's one way to avoid questions about being in rehab.

Efron apparently slipped on a puddle of water near the entrance of his L.A. home on Sunday, E! reports. He broke his jaw and suffered some cut somewhere unspecified, E! reports. The cut required several stitches.

Efron is expected to recover, which is good news, because he's got to promote That Awkward Moment, which is coming out in January. E! says those promo plans are on hold, because it's not like he can flash that million-dollar smile with a wired mandible.
