Los Angeles: Actor Zac Efron opens up about the circumstances that led to his decision to enter a rehabilitation.
The 26-year-old got candid on the first episode of "Running Wild With Bear Grylls" and said that he hit the rock bottom due to the media`s fascination with his personal life, reports eonline.com.
"The challenging part was never the work. That was never it. It was sort of the in-between work, the social aspects outside of it. I mean, everywhere you go to a certain extent, there is press in some form," said the erstwhile "High School Musical" star of finding fame at such a young age.
He added that the constant pressure caused him to seek out unhealthy coping mechanisms as a means to deal with his everyday life.
Efron`s realisation that he lost sight of his career became a big factor in his decision to get clean, which ultimately led to the rebuilding of his self-confidence.
