Okay so... people want to talk about his face. I've never been as keyed up over changes in his face as other people have. And generally I don't even feel it is worth mentioning until we get to January-February 2011 levels of roundness, when his temples take over his eyes. But I do think there is something to be said when it might affect continuity and it might in this case. I still don't think it is as bad as some people do though.

Here is a chart for comparison...



The last one is worst. Though he also looks like ET with his neck retracted, so idek what is going on there.

But even in the one before, it is rounder, enough so that might affect the project. And that is kind of what bothers me. Like I think he should have, but even if he didn't realize or didn't think (cause sometimes we don't) that his face was changing... someone else around him, like his assistant or manager or someone, should've said something.

IDK why it changed, it doesn't take much even. He eats out a lot and and he drinks like most guys his age do. But it is worth noting that while I think he was being excessive at the beginning of the year and it really showed, recently he's a lot less Hollywood club mildew and really much more like normal young 20-something dude. This is especially true when he's been at work and out of LA the past few months -- he ate out regularly and went out for fun once a weekend. That said, bro you are almost 24, think about these things. Everyone knows his face is what changes first and most.

I'll be sad for him if it does affect how people perceive his success in this role. It is an exciting project and he needs all the cred he can get. And I'm sure Bahrani is under pressure since this is his first project with major stars, so he has a lot at stake too. If Zac loses points, either with critics, the public, or the director, on something so easily preventable, shame on him and shame on the people around him who are supposed to be looking out for him, his projects, his reputation, and his million-dollar face.

I really can't with this. I can't with the fact that you guys (I'm including Cady and Jeezbee in this) are making assumptions about Zac's work ethic and awareness and those of the people around him, not to mention the whole crew and the entire project, based on the fact that his face is slightly more bloated in continuity pictures. I just am dumbfounded and getting angrier by the minute tbh. I seriously, SERIOUSLY, doubt that it will be in any way noticeable in the final product because I'm sure these scenes were filmed out of order and his face will look different on film.

Wow you guys, just wow.

I agree with this comment 100%.

To be honest I'm a little confused. Because the second to last and the last pic in the comparision chart seemed to have been taken on the same day and his face looks so different in each one. I don't think the second to last one is bad at all honestly.

"The last one is worst."

The last photo has TERRIBLE lighting! I wouldn't judge anything from this very poor image. Besides, to me, in this last photo he looks identical to the photo immediately above, from July 19, though his head has a slightly different inclination.

yeah i'm trying not to use that last one because like i said his neck is funny and that probably isn't helping on top of the other things you mention.

This post is just killing me.
The Writers Denmusewriter on October 2nd, 2011 07:06 pm (UTC)
Looking at the chart, I don't see any real noticeable difference between the pics taken on Friday and the pics taken on July 19th . That last pic is bad, but like someone else said, it's also lit terribly. Unless it gets really bad, I doubt the average moviegoer is going to notice.

As for continuity, again, I don't see it being that much of a problem unless his face continues to get worse. If Bahrani has an issue with it, I'm sure he's spoken to Zac about it.

I don't think it's right to question his work, ethic, dedication, or professionalism because, like Cady said, he shows up, does his job well, and is nice to the fans. And to be fair, I think it's unrealistic to expect him to look exactly as he did two months ago. He spent a month in New Orleans where you can gain weight just by looking at the food, and he did go out some. All things considered, and considering how round I thought his face looked in the airport pics from a few weeks ago, I think he looks just fine.

But recall my remark regarding the LAX arrival photos - his billed cap blocked the overhead lighting; only light bouncing off the floor and walls could reach his face. This lighting couldn't highlight any of the modeling in his face.

Whatever - he's adorable!

I love your comparison chart, btw. :)
quillo on October 2nd, 2011 07:32 pm (UTC)
these pictures are so cute(: ...i dont think it will be a prpblem at all there really is no difference in his face...and obviously no one is trying to offend zac they are just addressing coments by other people. ....i <3 his hoodie and his smile.ardorable!!!!
annabelle83 on October 3rd, 2011 11:30 am (UTC)
I know everyone here cares about Zac and wishes him the best, but some of you guys worry too much. Why do we have to worry about his face(or his personal life) when the gossip-hungry media can't find anything scandalous about it? I'm sorry, but can't we be more understanding and supportive fans?
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on October 3rd, 2011 02:00 pm (UTC)
You don't have to worry about his face or his personal life if you don't want to. I will and it makes me feel great to be judged as being not understanding and not supportive for that.

I'm sorry if I sound really frustrated. It is because I am. I'm not sure what else I can say that I have not said above about why I posted this or said what I said. And people judging me for caring or saying something right now, when other people have brought it up and when a change actually might matter professionally, sucks. I guess the only time a person can judge something about his face lacking definition or being rounder is at some random time or event where worst thing that could happen is a paparazzi/photog immortalizing his chubs forever in pictures hardly anybody sees.

Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 3rd, 2011 12:58 pm (UTC)
All I got out of this post is Zac is on set filming and being nice to fans. Fan pictures are always my favorite.

fyi, in all honesty, I see no difference from day one to now in terms of his face. it doesn't look like his face is chubby because there's a difference in his face when he's smiling and not smiling. When he's smiling, his cheeks widen his face, while when he isn't smiling his face appears normal.
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 3rd, 2011 01:01 pm (UTC)
Which is how it is with most people because there are more muscles in the cheeks than other parts of the face, so when smiling (like he is), it makes the face appear wider.
