Zac Efron broke his jaw this weekend

Sad news for Zac Efron fans who loved his jawline the most: The actor is now recovering after breaking that jaw over the weekend.

According to E! News, the 26-year-old actor slipped in a puddle of water outside of his Los Angeles-area home on Sunday. The nasty fall left the actor with a broken jaw and a cut severe enough to require stitches.

The actor's mouth is now wired shut, although he is expected to make a full recovery.

While he heals, though, promotional work for his upcoming comedy, "That Awkward Moment," have been put on hold. (It's a good thing the studio has already released a trailer featuring Efron totally in the nude - they should be able to get lots of mileage from that alone.)

Efron's "That Awkward Moment" co-star, Michael B. Jordan, isn't worried about this shake-up in their plans. "He's going to be OK," the "Fruitvale" star said at GQ's Men of the Year party on Tuesday. "He's tough."

That's good to hear, as this year has been a difficult one for Efron. The news spread in September that the actor had been in rehab.

    He'll be discussing pedophile experiences a la Corey Haim and Corey what's-his-name in 20 years. Very unfortunate. He should get out of Hollywood unless he's too far gone.

    I think you're going to have to tell us why this is a desirable or even remarkable jaw.

    Nonsense. He either fell face first while unconcious, or got his azz beat.

    He obviously never took self defense classes. The first thing you are taught is how to fall to avoid hitting your head. If everyone took just one judo or other class like it, 15,000 accidental home deaths a year would be prevented.

      Following that logic, wouldn't 'everyone' prevent 30,000 accidental home deaths by taking two judo or other classes like it?

    That's the best story his people could come up with? I wonder how he really broke it?

    I can see slipping on ice, but, a puddle of water?

      There's no ice in LA. If you have to slip and fall, your only choices are water, banana peels, small pebbles, sand or a bunch of marbles and/or ball bearings.

      It wasn't water. We had the boys over for some hot oil wrestling, and...., well......
