I’m sure Zac Efron isn’t the only person holding an American passport who has looked around at their surroundings and strongly considered packing a go-bag, throwing a dart on a map, and high-tailing it out of the country. If November 2020 continues as it has been, I’m sure there’s going to be a spike in sales of both world maps and darts. Zac Efron is apparently very interested in moving, and according to TMZ, he might be making plans to relocate to the land of koalas, beer, and Olivia Newton-John.
Sources say that Zac is considering listing his Los Angeles home, and permanently moving to the Byron Bay area of Australia (that would be the most eastern part of the continent, or the cat’s forehead). The reason for the move isn’t really that Zac is sick of the United States, but that he’s kind of over his life in Hollywood. Sources claim that Zac doesn’t really get off on being a famous person, so living in Los Angeles isn’t really his thing.
Our sources say Zac is burnt out living in and around Hollywood – he’s never been one for the limelight, or for being the center of attention, and we’re told he doesn’t like the paparazzi following him around town. While Zac wants to get far away from Tinseltown, we’re told he isn’t leaving the entertainment business at all – he’s just ready for a change of scenery.
TMZ goes on to say that Zac hasn’t even really worked in Los Angeles that much, pointing out that a lot of his more recent films have been shot on location in places like Miami, New York, and Georgia. And that’s just the stuff he’s filmed in America. Zac has also been known to get shirtless on camera in a variety of exotic international locales. Yes, I watched Down to Earth with Zac Efron for all the wrong reasons. But the point is, Zac has filmed around the globe, which proves he’s not a stay-in-one-place type of person. Additionally, Zac reportedly feels that Australia is a safer place to be in terms of COVID-19, which might be debatable right now. But apparently he feels better in Byron Bay, which is where he’s been living for the past month or so.

And while Zac hasn’t commented on this news personally, it probably won’t be a huge surprise if he does move. For one thing, he’s very clearly already living in Byron Bay. But also, because he mentioned his intention to leave LA in the 4th episode of Down to Earth with Zac Efron, titled: “Sardinia.” Zac expressed that he really doesn’t want to live in Los Angeles much longer, after having an epiphany that LA wasn’t going to be good for him, long-term. via The Daily Mail.
“I’m definitely looking at my life a whole new way. I gotta get out of Hollywood, I’m done. It’s not a place conducive to living a long, happy, mentally-sound life. I love California, I just think that dense population of people and city life is clearly not leading to many centenarians.”
Zac has said previously that going zero-carbs/all the protein to build up his body for Baywatch fucked him up mentally, and that putting so much pressure on him to have a Hollywood body was not something he wanted to do again. So who knows? Maybe this move will be good for him. He can swim all day and throw shrimp on the barbie all night. Plus, if he ever gets bitten by one of Australia’s notoriously terrifying animals, he’s already got his name on file in the Australian hospital system. Plus, Australia is the perfect place for Zac to exist. Australia has seen a severe lack of pumped-up muscles ever since we lost Roger the Buff Kangaroo.
