Los Angeles, Nov 18 IANS | 2 years ago

Actor Zac Efron, who broke his jaw, is surviving on liquid diet and uses a straw to drink soup.

The 26-year-old fell outside his home and hurt himself so badly that, in addition to stitches, he had to have his mouth wired shut and his friend and director of "Hairspray" Adam Shankman has been teasing him about drinking his soup through a straw, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I have been at his house every day and I have been making him soup. He has been drinking it through his straw ... He has to eat through a straw on a syringe. It's horrible," Shankman told UsMagazine.

"He's like my little brother, has been since 'Hairspray'. So I talk to him like a little brother, which means I give him a lot of s**t ... He has always been a klutz ... This is like a perfect Zac move," he added.
