Zac Efron immerses himself in his work amidst his breakup with girlfriend Vanessa Valladares. The 33-year-old looked gorgeous while taking part in a controlled bush burn in Queensland, Australia. It will be featured in his Netflix show of about sustainable lifestyle and travel adventures at Down to Earth. Zac posted three photos on his Instagram account on Thursday. April 22, marking World Earth Day.
‘Down To Earth’ Scenes
Zac was seen wearing a yellow fire extinguisher jacket with a gray T-shirt underneath and a pair of light-colored trousers. He wore a yellow protective helmet as he marched with a team of fire and land management experts from Girringun Aboriginal Corp. Zac looked deep in serious thought amongst burning brush around him in one of the photos, while appearing to discuss controlled burns with a GAC member in another photo with smoke and small flames around them.
In a group photo, Zac lit up his bright Hollywood smile while standing next to his film crew. The Baywatch star even confidently held onto the lapels of his firefighting jacket. His breakup with Vanessa seemed far removed from his mind in the picture, as the actor celebrated World Earth Day in his caption.
It’s a beautiful world, let’s protect it.” He then added, “Learning from the @girringunaboriginalcorp how to manage land through cultural burns,” and tagged his TV show and Earth Day’s organization.
Zac And Vanessa Split
Zac and Vanessa’s split was confirmed on Apr. 20 by one of his pals. “It’s not a rumor, it’s true. I can also confirm after speaking with him yesterday,” Kyle Sandilands said on The Kyle and Jackie O Show. “It’s only recent, but not, like, yesterday recent. But they’ve gone their separate ways… No drama, but it’s done.” He added, “They spent a lot of time with each other when he wasn’t working, lunching and living in the mansions on the beach. It’s a fabulous life. And then work comes back and kicks you straight back into reality, so it’s a shame.”
Kyle said that Zac’s busy work schedule was to blame for his split with Vanessa, who he met while she was waiting tables at Byron Bay’s General Store & Café. Zac had made the Gold Coast town his base camp during the COVID-19 pandemic, and still calls it home as he shoots Down to Earth season two around Australia. He and Vanessa had started hanging out in July 2020, and she hosted a birthday party for him in Oct. 2020. At the time of the bash, Kyle said, “He’s in love with this girl, Vanessa. They’re lovely. Beautiful couple. They do everything together… They’re just really sweet. They seem really settled and nice.” Zac and Vanessa were last photographed together on March 25, 2021 when she visited him on location at Mount Macedon in the state of Victoria.
