The incident occurred back in 2013 and caused Zac to have his mouth wired shut. He also sustained a deep gash that required stitches, reports E! News.

Zac has since cleared the rumors. He called the speculations funny. Even his mother called and asked him if Zac had cosmetically altered his face. After noticing the direction the stories were heading, he felt that maybe it was time to set the records straight.

The 34-year-old actor explained the situation during an interview with Men’s Health. He revealed that he underwent corrective surgery following the accident, which had led to a swollen face.

Zac explained that his stronger jawline was due to his growing masseter, rectangular–shaped facial, and jaw muscles. He committed to these masseter exercises to aid in his recovery.

The actor added that if he valued what other people thought of him, he would not be able to do his work.

He further discussed the long-lasting effects of such a rigorous training schedule, bland diet (the same three meals every day), and inadequate sleep. It caused him depression, insomnia, and other issues for a protracted time. Ultimately, it got blamed on using diuretics for far too long.

Zac said it looks fake, like a CGI, and requires Lasix, potent diuretics, to achieve. The actor had a hard time returning to his usual self.
