Former “High School Musical” heartthrob Zac Efron did a stint in rehab for cocaine earlier this year, TMZ reported Tuesday.
Efron went to rehab after his drug use spiraled out of control while he was filming the Seth Rogen movie, “Neighbors,” in April, the website reported.
A source added that he also experimented with MDMA – the active ingredient in Ecstasy tablets, which is known as ‘Molly’ on the street.
The actor – who was last seen looking dashing on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival – has not commented on the claims but is thought to have made a full recovery.
Zac will next star in Parkland, a drama about the Kennedy assassination, playing Efron plays Jim Carrico, the doctor who tried to save JFK at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
“It’s really a surreal experience for me,” he told USA Today.
“It feels very mature and really interesting. It’s a whole different kind of filmmaking and I feel blessed to have been a part of it.”
