“I couldn’t even watch it all the way through (for many reasons) but the first reason was Zac Efron, I kept thinking he was starting to look like that guy who was obsessed with the look of a Ken doll. Zac used to have nice eyes, now you can barely see them,” another person complained.

“We couldn’t take this seriously. My daughter and I turned it off. We couldn’t get over Zac Efron’s new chin, and my daughter thought he was too young for Nicole Kidman,” another said. “Zac was weirdly different,” another added.

“I find it very sad that so many people think it’s appropriate to publicly criticize others’ appearance, as I’ve seen in the comments. I think Nicole is beautiful as always and Zac is a very handsome man,” one person said. “He clearly had an accident that required reconstructive surgery and I hope he doesn’t see any cruel comments about his face.”

“The movie was funny and sweet. I didn’t care about the comments about Zac Efron’s face because his body was all I could see rocking,” another added. “All I saw was handsome Squidward. What makes him happy I guess?” another said.

Fans have speculated for years that it was not an accident that changed his appearance, but a combination of fillers and steroids, taken to gain muscle mass for other film projects.

“But can you explain why his face changed from ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’ in 2019 to what? His accident happened in 2013, in my opinion he made a much bigger adjustment if you compare his face in 2019 and 2024?” one person wrote on Reddit.


“It doesn’t matter that it happened 11 years ago, scar tissue, muscle growth, age, issues with the original surgery… a lot of things can happen, are we just going to pretend none of this matters after facial reconstruction? Everyone heals differently, none of us know their medical history,” one person said in defense of the star.
