Zac Efron finally set the record straight on his face transformation one year after sparking plastic surgery rumors.

The actor told Men’s Health in his October 2022 cover story, published Wednesday, that he shattered his jaw while running in his house with socks on.

Efron, 34, said he slipped, hit the corner of a fountain, passed out and woke up to his “chin bone … hanging off” his face.

Amid the “High School Musical” star’s recovery, his facial muscles got “really, really big” to compensate for the injury, so he worked with a physical therapist to counteract their growth.

When Efron took a break in Australia, the masseter [muscles] just grew,” the former Disney Channel star, who previously broke his jaw in 2013, explained with a shrug.

Fans first noticed Efron’s transformed face in April 2021, which led to rumors that he had gone under the knife.

The following month, his friend Kyle Sandilands denied Efron had work done.

“It’s like getting a Picasso and having a kid finger paint all over it,” Sandilands quipped on “The Kyle and Jackie O” radio show in May 2021. “Why bother? … I would know if he’d had any plastic surgery.”

Efron’s mom, Starla Baskett, was the one to clue her son into the plastic surgery speculation, as he chooses to remain off of social media.

The “17 Again” star did not appear fazed, telling Men’s Health, “If I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think I do, I definitely wouldn’t be able to do this work.”
