We all have pictures we want to delete from our lives, but when you're a celebrity, you can't. You might think this post is mean...but it's not. This is a celebration of Zac's most tragic years of his life. Being tragic is a part of growing up...and also whatever because Zac is hot as hell now.
Without further ado or explanation, here are 19 pictures Zac Efron wishes he could delete forever. Enjoy.
