But let’s go back to the bright side. Zac Efron, Adam Shankman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Vargas, Chief Keef, Oscar de la Hoya and Josh Brolin are closer to making their careers as long and healthy as we want them to be. And if that means we also have to tolerate longevity from the likes of Chris Brown and Brooke Mueller, we guess we’re Ok with that. Will stays »

Zac Efron broke his jaw, but his perfect jawline is, thank heavens, still perfect. On Tuesday, Nov. 26, the actor was photographed for the first time since he slipped in a puddle of water at the entrance of his L.A.-area home in mid-November. The 26-year-old That Awkward Moment star had to have his mouth wired shut during his recovery, but as you can see from this skateboarding shot, Zac appears to be bouncing back from his injury quite well.

Zac Efron may have broken his jaw earlier this month, but the injury hasn't affected his good looks! In these exclusive pictures, Zac is seen stepping out in La for the first time since news broke of his facial damage, which resulted in stitches and his mouth being wired shut.

It seems Zac is also still sticking with liquids since he was drinking a green juice, after Adam Shankman revealed that he'd been at Zac's house helping him drink soup through a straw following the incident. It's been a rough few months for Zac, who completed a stint in rehab in September, but things are already starting to look up. He's got That Awkward Moment hitting theaters in January, and the funny movie posters were just released last week. »
