We were surprised to hear rumors that Zac Efron had done a stint in rehab for a serious cocaine addiction. He's been pretty quiet about it so far. But he recently broke his silence to thank fans for their support via Instagram. Efron posted a photo of himself moutain climbing in Peru --looking quite hale and hearty. It all looks pretty innocent to me, but TMZ couldn't help braying, PERU?!? "The cocaine capital of the world!" Oh please.
You're thinking of Colombia, right? But no, Peru did recently overtake Columbia as the cocaine capital of the world. Still, can't a post-rehab movie star visit Machu Picchu without looking like he's picking up an eight-ball direct from the source? Like he would do that! Cocaine is perfectly easy to find in Los Angeles. And anyway, let's give Zac a little credit for staying sober.
In his post, Efron tells fans, "Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my dad and wanted to thank you all for your support these past few weeks...means the world to me. Love you guys! - Z." Sober Zac looks pretty good to me.
Do you think it's safe for Zac to travel to Peru?
