Why compare notes when you can compare abs?!
ICYMI, Madam Tussaud’s in Hollywood has a wax figure of Zac Efron from his days on Baywatch. Well, actually they have two – other one is from his High School Musical days. Although the more recent wax figure has been there for about two years, Zac has only just met his new wax figure on Ellen.
They got to talking about it, and the 31-year-old actor admitted he hasn’t seen it yet.
“As much as I love Madame Tussaud’s, I don’t think I can ever go in there,” Zac said. “I’m thinking about sneaking in there and just posing and standing still.”
So, host Ellen DeGeneres had a sweet surprise – she brought out his Baywatch wax figure! When he came face to face with his wax figure, the resemblance was uncanny – right down to the veins running down his arms and, yes, he even lifted his shirt up to compare their abs!
“Whoever did this, I’m very impressed, and scared,” he said.
It’s no secret that he totally bulked up for his role on Baywatch, and he had this to say about his wax figure:
“It’s a little bigger than me. That’s too big,” he pointed out. “That’s unrealistic, I’m telling you. I got very big and buff for that movie, but I don’t want people to think that’s the best way to be like.”
“Be your size,” he added. “I don’t wanna glamorize this [wax figure].”
Zac has been sharing updates on his recovery from his torn ACL on social media (he had knee surgery a while back). During their chat, he revealed he got injured while skiing with his brother on a remote mountaintop – and had to ski down on one leg before getting medical attention for his knee because he didn’t know he’d torn his ACL at the time.
Good news is his knee appears to be recovering nicely. Better news, fans get a peek at those uber chiseled abs of his during Ellen.
Audiences have the hostess with the mostest to thank for getting Zac to lift his shirt up and give all of us a peek at those washboard abs. Thank you, Ellen.
