When you are a young star in Hollywood who is enjoying huge success on a global scale, there are always going to be many different temptations that will come your way and it is never easy to avoid these temptations all the time. We have seen many stars fall into the traps of drink and drugs over the years and, while some have managed to turn their lives around, there are others that have not been so lucky.
Actor Zac Efron enjoyed a lot of fame from a very young age and encountered the usual temptations that come the way of a young star in Hollywood. Zac ended up getting involved in heavy drinking and drug abuse but has managed to get through his struggles with the help of therapy, and has now opened up about the falling into the traps of temptations.
Efron told The Hollywood Reporter, "I was drinking a lot, way too much. It's never one specific thing. I mean, you're in your 20s, single, going through life in Hollywood, you know? Everything is thrown at you. I wouldn't take anything back; I needed to learn everything I did. But it was an interesting journey, to say the least."
Zac then went on to admit that he took it upon himself to seek help and has not looked back since, "I just started going. And I think it's changed my life. I'm much more comfortable in my own skin. Things are so much easier now," added Efron.
As for his acting career, Zac Efron can soon be seen on the big screen in the movie Neighbors, which will open on May 3 in the UK, before landing in the US on May 9. Check out the Neighbors trailer below.
