Neighbors hottie, Zac Efron, appeared on Bear Grylls new TV show Running Wild on Monday night. Efron was challenged by Grylls by eating worms and bird eggs, cutting open a dead ground hog, sleeping in a cave next to a bottle of pee for warmth, rappelling down waterfalls, and jumping from helicopters.
While facing these challenges, Efron took the opportunity to open up about his stint in rehab last year.
‘Pretty soon you need a social lubricant,’ Efron said. ‘The challenging part was never the work. That was never it,’ he said of what made him spiral out of control. ‘It was the sort of in-between work. The social aspects outside of it, I mean everywhere you go there is press in some form. It can be everywhere and it can be confusing. You spend a lot of time in your house, going crazy.’
He added, ‘It was getting to the point where I was caring less for the work and waiting more for the weekend, where I couldn’t wait to go out and sort of let loose and have fun,’ he admitted. ‘But when Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, then I was like, ”Ah, this is bad.”
‘I just really never again want to have to take anything from the outside into me to feel good about my outside, to be comfortable in my present skin. And that takes a lot of work.
‘It’s just meditation, and stopping and slowing down your brain.’
Efron went on the show because he is a ‘genuine fan of Bear Grylls,’ and because it reminded him of outdoor adventures with his dad. Efron is next set to work on John Grisham’s thriller, The Associate, which he will both star in and produce.
