Actor Zac Efron broke his jaw over the weekend after reportedly slipping and falling in the entrance of his Los Angeles-area home.

The 26-year-old actor, who starred in films such as "17 Again" and "High School Musical," had slipped from a puddle of water that he had not seen in his entryway, causing him to lose his footing and fall to the ground, E! News reported.

Efron's mouth was wired shut due to the broken jaw and he received several stitches for a gash on his face, E! News noted. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Efron went through two rehab stints earlier this year for substance abuse.

In September, Efron was released from his most recent rehab stint, with sources close to the young actor telling E! News, "He's healthy, happy and not drinking," adding, "He's taking time to focus on working."

Efron publicly acknowledged his battle with addiction in September when he posted a photo of himself at the Machu Picchu mountain ruins in Peru on Instagram with the caption: "Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my dad and wanted to thank you all for your support these past few weeks...means the world to me. Love you guys! – Z."

Neither Efron nor his reps previously acknowledged the rehab reports before his Instagram message, The Huffington Post noted.

The substance abuse was apparently most evident during the filming of the recent movie "Neighbors" in which Efron plays a frat boy. A source familiar with the situation told TMZ that the California-born actor's problem "spiraled out of control" during the movie adding, "it was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine."

Other sources further told TMZ that Efron also liked to "dabble" with the rave drug Molly.

In addition to the movie "Neighbors" that is reportedly scheduled for a May 2014 release, Efron is also starring in the upcoming film "That Awkward Moment" that will be released in January.
