When Zac Efron was nominated for Best Shirtless Scene at the MTV Movie he made an off the cuff joke that if he won he’d accept the award with the shirt off.
Many were soon keen to make sure he’d keep to his word, and in the end he was game to do just that.
Efron got a little help from Rita Ora to remove the demin (as he Tweeted afterwards: ‘@RitaOra Thanks for such a bold move. I don’t know if I could’ve done that on my own’) and then stood on stage flexing those muscles and proving why he got the gong in the first place.
We’re also pleased to see that he hasn’t bowed to pressure to remove the the light fur he’s been sporting recently, which looks surprisingly good on him. Check out a few more pics and video of Zac below.
