Zac Efron`s eating woes

Los Angeles: Actor Zac Efron, who broke his jaw, is surviving on liquid diet and uses a straw to drink soup.

The 26-year-old fell outside his home and hurt himself so badly that, in addition to stitches, he had to have his mouth wired shut and his friend and director of `Hairspray` Adam Shankman has been teasing him about drinking his soup through a straw, reports

"I have been at his house every day and I have been making him soup. He has been drinking it through his straw ... He has to eat through a straw on a syringe. It`s horrible," Shankman told UsMagazine.

"He`s like my little brother, has been since `Hairspray`. So I talk to him like a little brother, which means I give him a lot of s**t ... He has always been a klutz ... This is like a perfect Zac move," he added.
