Zac Efron Keeps the Doctor Away (PHOTOS)

Zac Efron: Heartthrob. Facial-hair advocate. And now, nutrition guru.

The former High School Musical hunk further demonstrated his commitment to a healthy lifestyle while in Australia on Tuesday by chowing down on an apple—which, studies show, can help lower cholesterol, promote weight loss, and protect bones.

The one downside? The juice from the apple could very well gunk up that lovely beard of his.

Let’s all celebrate Efron’s health-consciousness by clicking through the photo gallery, shall we? And make sure to take a peek at Paparazzi-Razzi for more photos of famous people doing amazing things.
