Zac Efron reportedly went to rehab in recent months, sources say

Has Zac Efron been to rehab in recent months? That was the word out Tuesday from unnamed sources, alleging to several media outlets that the "17 Again" actor had wrapped up treatment about five months ago.

Efron, whose newest flick, "Parkland," debuted at the Venice Film Festival and recently was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, walked the Toronto red carpet for the film this month.

"He's healthy, happy and not drinking," one source told E! News, which first reported the story. "He's taking time to focus on working."

People sources also confirmed that Efron had done rehab, with one saying the 25-year-old was "taking care of himself and it shows." A source told Us Weekly that the actor was cutting "toxic people" out of his life.


However, what the actor reportedly sought help for is unknown — whether it was alcohol, as E! News reported, or perhaps something more serious.

A request for comment from Efron's rep was not immediately returned.

"Parkland," about the days around the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, hits theaters Oct. 8.
