Zac Efron Jealous Of Dwayne Johnson On ‘Baywatch’ Set?
According to Life & Style, there was tension on the set of the upcoming comedy because Efron was envious of his co-star. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Dwayne got almost all of the attention during filming, and Zac resented it. Zac is used to hearing about how hot his body is, but all he heard on set was how ripped The Rock was. Barely any compliments came his way. He was super jealous.”
The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to allege that Efron doesn’t want to promote the movie alongside Johnson, and is “insisting on doing publicity for the film separately.” The “source” adds, “Zac worked harder than ever to get into shape for Baywatch, and he doesn’t want to have to do a flexing act next to The Rock.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that Efron and Johnson became great friends on the set of Baywatch, and the tabloid’s story is entirely fabricated. In fact, Johnson even joked on Instagram about his co-star being in better shape than him while they filmed the movie.
“This guy Zac, has the nerve to diet and works his ass off for months for this role and shows up on set completely jacked, with his perfectly chiseled face, being a genuinely wonderful human and his 36 pack abs,” wrote Johnson. He added, “Bullsh*t. F*ck that guy. Not on my sets… Ok, he’s my brother, one of my best buds and I luv the guy but keep that between us.”
