Also from twitter, sounds like he had a meeting at WB yesterday. That's what I like to hear :)

Finally it seems he's getting back to work,

I don't know what to think about the new meeting. I used to love seeing him working all the time, but after the rehab news I realized what a selfish fan I was. His health and happiness should come first. But he's thinking of going back to work as soon as his jaw starts to heal? Come on, Zac. Please take care of yourself...

i think the work itself is good for zac and he enjoys it so i'm not worried about him going back too soon or anything. i think some of the emotional aspects tied to this being such a high stakes and high profile game are probably what undermined his confidence, etc. that's what he kind of has to work on finding peace with and in that regard, i've always felt that if he came to a decision that he needed to take a break or walk away from it completely, i would 100% support that.

why would he take a break from filming? if he had that choice?

i think he has to find ways to survive in a toxic environment. hollywood is toxic for a number reasons, the most obvious being how prevalent drug and alcohol use is. but it is also psychologically challenging. he will frequently not get projects he wants to do, and often for unfair reasons (aka people pigeonhole him as musical boy). worse he is constantly scrutinized, by critics, bean-counters, gossip mongers, media, anti-fans. and even us stans. he lives in a fishbowl and while he has learned to play the game, playing the game fucks with your head long term. he has to find a way to survive that and have a fulfilling life. at some point there is a choice to stay or leave, whether the joy of acting is worth the pain of all the shit that comes with being a movie star. i don't think it will ever be a decision to walk away completely but i think even rob lowe said it somewhere recently that he had to make life and sobriety the priority over these other things.

I just hope he goes to hometown and takes a rest there until the TAM promo starts. Adam Shankman said he had been visiting Zac every day and Zac was photographed with dad around Thanksgiving, so I assume he hasn't gone back to hometown since breaking jaw? What I'm worried about is him staying in LA when not working. I wonder if he's getting enough treatment and therapy for the addiction problem. People believe his jaw injury is the result of partying, and I'm afraid they may be right.

My parents came to visit me recently. They asked "How are you?" and I said, "I barely have time to go to the bathroom," and they said, "That's good! When you're not busy, that's when you get into trouble."

The same thing applies to Zac. He's a worker, a doer. As long as he's working and doing, he's good. The worst thing you can do to Zac is put him in his house and tell him not to come out for awhile. Within 24 hours he'd be higher than Icarus.

Zac needs to do work on himself though, and that should take up some time each day. Addiction is predisposition plus personality, and the personality aspect has to be addressed, or he'll go right back to using.

I don't think he's a bonafide narcissist. By that, I mean that external cockiness and bravado is just show. Zac alone hates himself, and all the drugs, sex, etc. is his way of propping up his ego and avoiding dealing with himself. He has to look at himself, however, to make changes so he doesn't use, and that's very hard and very scary. But there's a reward at the end: self-respect and the right quantity and quality of self-love. Once he achieves it, he won't need the approval of others to feel good about himself.

I don't know if some of us ever truly arrive at that place, but we try, and have a kind of temporary satisfaction.

Zac always seemed insecure about himself. And I remember him saying he's a pessimist. Now that I look back, he has always said he thinks his chance at making it in Hollywood is very small. So sad.

"he won't need the approval of others to feel good about himself."

Huh? This guy is swimming in a sea of approval from others, so I don't see where lack of approval comes into the equation.

I agree, he's a worker and needs occupation.

I'm not sure about all the psychology stuff. He may just like to party, and as he says, "I never half-ass anything."

Bee: Zac – CStC - still - looking upjeezbee on December 5th, 2013 02:06 pm (UTC)
I have to echo the others here. I tend to think that working is a good thing for him and having all of 2012 basically "free" was contributing to his issues.

That aside, having a meeting doesn't even mean he's going back to work filming. Actors have meeting all the time and only in few cases something comes of it right away.
annabelle83 on December 5th, 2013 03:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah... maybe the meeting was related to TAM promo? His production company is Warner Bros.-based.

It definitely shows in his appearance that he's trying to find peace with his demons. But I feel bad cause isn't his new house supposed to be in a gated community? boo papz

I don't think he is in a gated community. I think that was an error in misreading that his house is gated by whatever blog.

oh nvm then

I think the whole story was screwed up as far as the car/parking is concerned. The car is clearly parked on the street, and why would he park on the street at home, where he has a capacious and private parking area of his own?
