In a conversation with Ritz Carlton in Dallas, Texas, per People, Zac Efron said, “And everybody was out there, there was this huge crowd and the lights were on.”

He continued, “I just remember in that moment thinking, ‘How the hell did I end up here? What is going on? It was the very first time that I had to enter the Sportatorium in Kevin [Von Erich’s] full costume, which was just, frankly, a Speedo, or trunks.”

He ended with, “At that moment, I was frozen in time just going: ‘This is it. This is the end. How did you get here? What choices have you made?”

In a conversation with Entertainment Tonight, he said, “The physicality he brought to the ring every single day was really unique. It changed wrestling. I knew that was going to be the hardest [thing] for me to master and get right. So, I put everything I had into it.”

He also talked about Baywatch saying, “That was actually a really important time to do ‘Baywatch’ because I realized that when I was done with that movie, I don’t ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really. It was so hard.”

In an interview in 2020, he said, “You’re working with almost no wiggle room, right? You’ve got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. S–t like that it’s just not … it’s just stupid.”

I’m telling you, I got very big and buff for that movie,” he said on an episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

He further said, “But I don’t want people to think that’s the best way to be. Be your size.”
