The hunky actor, Zac Efron, who is starring in the new Ted Bundy flick, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, shared some scary news on Instagram Friday (Feb. 8).

The 31-year-old took to social media to let his fans know what happened and that he is on the mend.

“I tore my ACL shredding the gnar⛷ 😕 but all is good,” Zac wrote.

For those of us not familiar with the term, shredding the gnar, according to the urban dictionary, is an extreme snow sporting term meaning to go big, never stop or give up; accept the reality that anything is possible, and everything can be accomplished if you set your mind to it.

Good for Zac, we think.

“I opted for surgery so I can come back stronger than ever,” he continued.  “Thank you to Dr. Kvitne and his team at Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center. I’ll keep you updated as I heal and progress! Thanks for all the love and positivity!”

Accompanied with the message, Zac shared a photo of himself laid up int he hospital with his leg wrapped in a brace. The incident looks painful, but we’re hoping that Zac makes a full recovery.
