Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Zac Efron is starring in a movie called “The Iron Claw”.  It’s about the famous Von Erich pro wrestling family from Texas, and he’s playing Kevin Von Erich.

And he REALLY beefed up for the part.  A picture from the set shows him looking bigger than ever.  Not quite as cut as he was in “Baywatch”, but a lot more intimidating.

Zac was happy not to be as sculpted, because his fitness routine for “Baywatch” left him in a deep depression.

He said, quote, “That look, I don’t know if that’s really attainable.  There’s just too little water in the skin.  Like, it’s fake; it looks CGI’d.

“And that required Lasix, powerful diuretics, to achieve.  So I don’t need to do that.  I much prefer to have an extra, you know, 2 to 3 percent body fat.”
