Actor Zac Efron has admitted that he used to google himself every day until he realised three years ago that he should not be viewing himself through other people’s pictures.
The 28-year-old We Are Your Friends star said there was a time when he used to check what people were saying about him on a daily basis until he realised he was not “living his own life”, reported Female First. “What I found is structure which led me to a balance of opposites. You get out of life what you put in. There was a moment when my morning routine was like, get up and google yourself,” Efron said.
“But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago. I realised that viewing yourself through other people’s pictures is not living your own life. I wasn’t really being myself. A lot of my hobbies had gone out the window. I couldn’t skateboard or surf for fear of being followed. Crossing the line of fear is what leads to greatness,” he said. He also added that he now feels ‘the physically strongest’ than ever before.
