Since his early acting days in 'High School Musical', Zac Efron has been one of the biggest and most popular male "sex symbols" in the world. He is known for rarely having his shirt on and showing off his killer body and abs. However, out of all of his roles, one has yet to gain as much attention and eye-oggling as his role in 'Baywatch'. While fans couldn't get enough of Efron's hard-earned body, he himself has said that we probably wont be seeing it again any time soon.

While sitting down with 'Men's Journal' at the time of the films release, Efron said that he had gotten to his peak in physical fitness, claiming that he worked out constantly and stayed on a very strict diet. However, while sitting down with Sean Evans for the popular series 'Hot Ones', Efron stated that while he doesn't have any desire or plans to get back into that sort of shape anytime soon, he does admire the athletes and individuals who are able to.

"For me, athletes are like movie stars. When I get to meet or hang out with somebody who’s been [an] inspiration to me…that’s really fun. And if they want to train with me? Unreal. I’m getting to peak behind the curtain [and] sort of just have fun with them and see them in their element. Because that’s all they do! They train. And some of them are savage," he stated.

Efron then brought up his time on Baywatch, acknowledging his own hard work in the process.

"I realized when I was done with [Baywatch] I don’t ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really. It was so hard. You’re working with almost no wiggle room. You’ve got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about. Making your six pack into a four pack — sh*t like that… it’s just stupid. It’s just not real," he added. While he expressed the difficulty in it, he did say that he is glad that rose to the challenge and accomplished it.

"I may do it again if it was something worthwhile. But we’ll wait till it gets to that," he added.

For now, Efron's focus is more so on his internal state rather than his physical state. "Take care of your heart, take care of your brain," he emphasized.

Back in 2019, Efron also spoke on his 'Baywatch' bod with Ellen DeGeneres. After meeting his wax figure Efron said, "I’m telling you, I got very big and buff for that movie. But I don’t want people to think that’s the best way to be. Be your size."
