by at . Comments

He's clean, he's sober and he's newly 26!

Zac Efron, who secretly spent time in rehab this year for a substance abuse problem, celebrates a birthday today. But he's already given fans the very best gift of all: a new perspective on life.

And he's also naked in That Awkward Moment trailer. That's another good present for his followers.

Efron, of course, rose to fame as part of the High School Musical cast.

He dated costar Vanessa Hudgens for many years, but has been mostly single since that relationship ended in 2011.

On the big screen, Efron has appeared in such films as 17 Again, The Paperboy and Parkland. He remains intent on proving that he's moved behind his teenage years and is prepared to tackle more mature roles.

Let's just hope we don't soon see him naked on a Wrecking Ball as a result.

Happy birthday, Zac! We're so glad you're doing well!
