Zac Efron has been hos­pi­talised af­ter tear­ing his an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment (ACL). The 31-yearold ac­tor took to so­cial me­dia on Fri­day to re­veal he has un­der­gone surgery to re­pair his torn lig­a­ment — which is one of a pair of cru­ci­ate lig­a­ments in the knee — af­ter he suf­fered the in­jury whilst ‘’shred­ding the gnar’’, a term used when some­one ex­cels in ex­treme sports such as snow­board­ing, skate­board­ing, surf­ing, or ski­ing. He wrote, “I tore my ACL shred­ding the gnar but all is good. I opted for surgery so I can come back stronger than ever. Thank you to Dr Kvitne and his team at Ker­lan-Jobe Surgery Cen­ter. I’ll keep you up­dated as I heal and progress! Thanks for all the love and pos­i­tiv­ity! (sic)’’ The ac­tor — who will next be seen on screens as Ted Bundy in Ex­tremely Wicked, Shock­ingly Evil, and Vile —is known for his love of the out­doors, and once came face to face with a griz­zly bear whilst on a hik­ing trip in Mon­tana with his brother Dy­lan. He said, “Out of nowhere, (we were like) ‘Okay, that’s a bear. Every­body stop. And we all stood still. Some­body silently whis­pered ‘But it’s charg­ing at us.’ It took like two big can­ters at us. (Luck­ily it) dis­ap­peared be­hind some trees. It was the scari­est part of the trip! But it was cool to see a bear that close. It was maybe 15 or 20 feet away. It was charg­ing at us!’’
