The Rock and Zac Efron Are Getting Absurdly Jacked for the New 'Baywatch' Movie

Efron might be the only man in Hollywood crazy/fit enough to challenge Dwayne Johnson to a tire-flipping contest.

The new Baywatch movie is billed as an R-rated comedy-action flick, but that doesn't mean Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron aren't taking it seriously. Case in point: This behind-the-scenes training shot, in which The Rock and The Boy Wonder compete in a feat of manly strength: tire flips.


Yes, Efron looks a lot more muscular than usual. "Proud of the hard work he put in," Johnson says. "That's the way you make a character 'Iconic.'" Yes, Efron has always been pretty chiseled, and yes, he's flipping a tire. But even when you account for the lighting, Efron looks utterly cut up on the Baywatch set.

Doesn't matter. Rock beats Scissors in the tire contest.
