Zac Efron Hits The 2014 MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet

There’s nothing like a great comeback story, and who better to wow the masses than Zac Efron? The heartthrob, who has worried his famous friends lately with his partying ways, hit the MTV Movie Awards red carpet, and we have to say, he looks great!

Wearing a denim button-up shirt, tight black jeans and black shoes to match, all eyes were on Zac, who looked so excited to be back in the limelight — for all the right reasons. May we also add that his spiked hair and adorable smile was complimented by his super buff arms? Wow!

The actor — who has suffered bad press recently, due to partying and fighting — is nominated for Best Shirtless Performance, thanks to his steamy bedroom scenes in That Awkward Moment, and it’s easy to see why. There is nothing awkward about Zac’s appearance tonight!

Zac Wins Best Shirtless Performance At 2014 MTV Movie Awards

For the award of Best Shirtless Performance, the actor went up against The Hunger GamesSam Claflin, Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth, Leonardo DiCaprio for Wolf of Wall Street and even Jennifer Aniston who stole the show in her stripper scenes in We’re The Millers. That’s some stiff competition! But Zac and his seriously impressive six-pack ran away with the award! And when Rita Ora ripped off his shirt to flaunt that bod — it was obvious that he deserved the award.

Zac let his fans know that he’d accept his award on stage without a shirt on! On March 7, when Zac heard about his nomination, he tweeted:

Zac will also strip down in his upcoming movie The Neighbors, which costars Seth Rogan. “It’s kind of embarrassing, but you do push-ups before a shirtless scene,” Zac told MTV when he and his cast promoted the upcoming comedy, which hits theaters on May 9, in silly promos for the MTV Movie Awards.
