No wonder Vanessa Hudgens can’t keep her hands off of him! Zac Efron looks older and studly after bulking up for his new movie!

Zac Efron‘s always been an attractive dude, but now he’s transformed from metro and sexy to manly and handsome, making him absolutely, positively delicious.

The 23-year-old actor reportedly packed on 18 pounds of muscle for his role as an American veteran of the Iraq war, in the film adaptation of Nicholas SparksThe Lucky One, and I’m loving the look.

“I was just eating, eating and eating,” he told E! Online’s Marc Malkin Dec. 9 of his recent weight gain.

With his new Hulk-like muscles and Marine-style buzz cut, Zac leaves his High School Musical pretty boy image behind and steps into the category of today’s hottest leading man. (After all, he DID win the People’s Choice Award for Most Popular Star Under 25!) He was spotted hitting the gym while in the Caribbean last month and the hard work has paid off!

What do YOU think of Zac’s new look? Should he ditch the bulk and slim up? What about his hair? Should he keep it short or go back to shaggy? And do you think Vanessa Hudgens is excited about her friends with benefits/ex looking all beefy? Sound off below!
