Zac Efron Reveals How Sobriety Stopped Him From Googling Himself

Zac Efron Reveals How Sobriety Stopped Him From Googling Himself

Zac Efron snaps a selfie with a fan while out and about on Wednesday (May 18) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actor recently opened up to Elle about how being sober changed his outlook on life.

“There was a moment when my morning routine was, like, ‘Get up and Google yourself.’ But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago,” Zac said.

He continued, “I realized that viewing yourself through other people’s pictures is not living your own life. I wasn’t really being myself… Crossing the line of fear is what leads to greatness.”

FYI: Zac is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo bomber jacket and sunglasses, a Baldwin tee, and Puma shoes.

    Zac is looking so good lately. I don’t believe for one moment Zac has been sober since 2013. However I think he is doing better again and I hope he stays sober. He is the only one who can do this.
