Zac Efron Makes Good On His Promise To Accept Award Shirtless

Zac Efron proved he’s a man of his word when he accepted the MTV Movie Award for Best Shirtless Performance sans his shirt Sunday night. Last week, the 26-year-old, blue-eyed dreamboat promised that if he won the award, he would accept his trophy in just his trousers.

As he was thanking the audience at last night’s show, chants of “Take it off!” could be heard from the peanut gallery. This prompted presenter Rita Ora to run across the stage and rip open Mr. Efron’s shirt from behind, exposing his perfect pectoral muscles, killer six-pack and a rare glimpse of chest hair.

Afterwards, Zac tweeted:

You’re a good man, Mr. Efron.
