Zac Efron opens up about substance abuse to Bear Grylls

zac Speaking with Bear Grylls on an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, where the British adventurer takes celebrities on two-day excursions, Zac Efron opened up about his drug addiction and life before rehab.

The actor talked about how the paparazzi were ever-present in his life and how he needed a “social lubricant” to feel happy.

“The challenging part was never the work,” Zac said. “It was sort of the in-between work. The social aspects outside it – I mean, everywhere you go to a certain extent there is press in some form.

“It can be everywhere, and it’s, you know, it can be confusing. You spend a lot of time in your house going crazy, you know pretty soon you need a social lubricant.”

“Once I needed that, it became to go anywhere. It was getting to the point where I was caring less about the work and waiting more for the weekend you know what I mean, where I couldn’t wait to go out. You know, and sort of let loose and have fun.”
