    Haha! “Katniss Kills Everything” is hilarious, very cleverly done!

  2. T.C. says:

    Slipped in a puddle of water and broke his jaw? This guy is not sober. There is more to this story.

    • MisJes says:

      Agreed. He’s still struggling with sobriety and there is clearly more at play here that we just aren’t privy to. Surely his management could have come up with something better than a puddle.

      • Leslie says:

        Yes, that story his team released is weird. You’d think they could have at least said he fell down concrete steps or something. I’m sure with a broken jaw he’s in lots of pain. So, whatever the reasons behind it, I hope he is on the mend. And if it is drug related, I hope he does get help.

    • Faye says:

      Obviously, there could be something else happening here – but as for the puddle of water story not being possible . . .this summer, it was raining outside only a tiny bit and I slipped and fell, hard, in a parking lot. I fractured my foot, was on crutches for week. Then it turned out I had a back injury from the fall, too, which was incredibly painful and slow to resolve itself. Thank God I’m mostly better now (just need a little more physical therapy), but believe me, I will never laugh again at the slipping in water thing! It can do a lot of damage.

      • bluhare says:

        Yeah, but fracturing his jaw implies he fell forward. Most people throw out an arm to brace themselves falling forward.

        But what you went through sounds like no fun at all. Glad you’re almost done.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I know Zac’s place has an elaborate outdoor pool area with stairs. I could totally see a person slipping in pool water and hitting their face on the steps.

      • Florc says:

        And because he didn’t put out an arm or shield his face i’ll wager it was either so fast to respond or he was drinking. He might get hotter with a face scar.

      • MisJes says:

        No one said it was impossible. It could have happened exactly the way his management has said it did. But knowing this guy, and what he’s been involved in the last few years, it isn’t an unreasonable stretch to assume there was more to it than just an accidental slip in a puddle.

      • Samtha says:

        @bluhare, not always. My mom fell down her porch steps last summer and broke her cheekbone and nose. If the fall is fast and hard, you don’t always have a chance to get your arm out to catch yourself. Even though my mom tried to catch her fall, her face still bounced off the ground.

        The story does sound suspicious, but I actually believe it because of that. If something else had happened, why wouldn’t they have come up with a better cover story?

    • Sarah says:

      you would be surprised how serious injuries and even deaths happen. the kitchen and the bathroom are basically the most dangerous places in our lives :)

    • Heebeegeebee says:

      I’ve had some freaky accidents myself but I don’t buy this.

    • doofus says:

      reminds me of the “choked on a pretzel” story the W admin tried to sell us.

    • Andrew1 says:

      Dear lord all of you are ridiculous. I have slipped and fell flat on my face outside a water park and fractured my nose…I’m sure if I fell on concrete I would have broken done stuff pretty bad (fell on gravel/dirt…slipped on a stepping stone that had a water puddle). Even if something else is going on, y’all are acting like it’s wrong they’re trying to hide it. I mean, would you want the world to know you fell and broke your jaw because you were drunk? Is it your business? I know we’re on a gossip site but I think y’all are seeing something bad behind every bush. (Sorry…I’ve had a long day with dumb people so I’m taking it out on this site :P )

    • deehunny says:

      THIS. Quick story– I had a friend that was addicted to Oxycotin and Xanax and he was all barred out and broke his jaw in the kitchen trying to get to the fridge. He said he kept falling repeatedly on his face but he only remembers stumbling. The doctor pretty much said it is obvious “you weren’t sober” because it takes a lot of force to break the jaw bone– it’s not an easy feat and that’s why it is uncommon. So yeah, essentially he was probably all pilled up on something.

      • leeloo says:

        Yep. A friends brother was all doped out at a rave, fell forward and broke his jaw. Took very long to heal and his teeth weren’t cleaned properly when they were wired shut so they rotted. When you are pilled up you can’t put your arms forward, you don’t think quick enough. Reflexes of a strong twenty something should be quicker. Probably passed out on a counter, poor guy.

    • Thiajoka says:

      I could well see me doing something like that easily just from being a bumbling clumsy idiot, which I’ve always been. We are not ALL ballerinas in this world, although I’m clearly in the minority on this site…

  3. Elisabeth says:

    dipped out and broke his head

  4. Bubulle says:

    He looks like a nice guy, I hope he recovers quickly, but yeah that puddle of water stuff sounds like a lame excuse.

  5. Tiffany27 says:

    #23 in the germaphobe article is my weekly struggle.

  6. Happy21 says:

    I really hope Zac succeeds in his sobriety. I find him incredibly likeable and find it sad that he’s going through these struggles.

  7. Sheila says:

    Could be true, but sounds weird, especialy the timing, considering his recently revealed partying past (or is is past??). He must NOT have held his arms out to break his fall (first thing one does usually) , he must have went down straight-smack-hard to injure his jaw!

    But my Aunt just tripped over her own feet and has MAJOR back/vertebrae problems/ache and my niece tripped over the dog’s leash and broke her leg and my co-worker tripped over the garden hose and broke her elbow, so I guess it could happen (or I know way too many clumsy people LOL!!).

  8. Rhiley says:

    From the tag, I was expecting Debra Messing to look like Courtney Love or Goldie Hawn at Kris Jenner’s birthday party. I think she looks a lot better than she did a couple of months ago. Her face seems to have calmed down a bit. The dress is a weird cut, but it is a nice color on her.

  9. Meggin says:

    Not sure I believe the ‘puddle of water’ story… but I hope he gets sober and healthy soon.

  10. GIRLFACE says:

    I like this man and he has a rather nice face, I hope it heals speedily. What a terrible injury.

  11. Jackson says:

    That shirt looks so very uncomfortable.

  12. F5 says:

    Must have been awful cause he also lost his neck, apparently D:

  13. koolkitty says:

    Not sure if it’s true or not but I feel a lot less lame now for slipping and falling in the shower old lady style : o)

  14. SamiHami says:

    I won’t speculate on what caused his fall; I wasn’t there so I don’t know. I will just say that it must have been terribly painful and I hope he feels better soon. That just sounds like an incredibly painful accident!

  15. Marianne says:

    I dont think the story is too strange.Perhaps there was a puddle of water by the sink. As he slipped, maybe he threw his arms out the side to try and catch counter but missed, so he fell forward and hit his jaw.

    It’s not implausible.

    • Belle says:

      It’s also possible to hit your face (jaw) on something else, such as a counter, or even the corner of a wall. Not every slip/fall is a backward fall or one where someone can get their hands out in time. My kids have slipped on my hardwood floor in their socks going around a corner nearly bashing their faces on a really hard, heavy bannister. I can see a fall happening with someone running or hurrying through an area, going around a corner, slipping and falling sideways, hitting their face/chin/jaw on the floor, a wall, bannister, table, counter… whatever.

      I kind of believe the story, in part, because it sounds so stupid… and that is how many legitimate, sober falls sound when described… LOL I can’t even count how many times I’ve heard someone joke about making up a ‘better story’ to explain an injury because the real story sounded very stupid. The ‘slipping on a puddle’ sounds like a short, simple explanation for what probably happened, and I tend to think that Zac’s people would have come up with something better if they were creating a cover story.

      As others have mentioned…. it sounds terribly painful and I wish him a speedy recovery!

  16. Andrew1 says:

    I don’t know why guys with nice bodies where such weird/uncomfortable looking clothes. I think they look more handsome when they just wear normal/everyday clothes. Or normal dress clothes. No need to take a ton of time to make a weird/uncomfortable look. Oh well, nobody asked me lol

  17. magpie says:

    Unfortunately now he’ll have a good excuse to take even more “painkillers”. Sounds like one of the many Lohan “accidents”. Get well Zac.

  18. Get well soon says:

    Maybe this is just the wakup call/fall he needed to get back to rehab.

    Is this the kind of story when you tell your teacher the reason that you did not do your homework because ” my dog ate my homework ” ??
