Zac Efron wants to move Down Under. The 32-year-old actor is reportedly considering leaving Los Angeles to move to Australia and sources reveal why. 

In his new Netflix show, “Down To Earth With Zac Efron,” the “Baywatch” hunk revealed his desire to leave LA and now he’s bent on doing it. 

Not one to enjoy being followed by paparazzis and being the center of attention, Efron is considering a life away from the LA chaos. Sources tell TMZ the “The Greatest Showman” star is planning to put his LA home on the market “in the very near future” and move to Byron Bay in Australia. 

According to the insiders, the actor is burnt out from living in Tinseltown. “He's never been one for the limelight, or for being the center of attention, and we're told he doesn't like the paparazzi following him around town,” the publication wrote.

Despite this possible big move, the actor isn’t leaving Hollywood altogether. He’ll continue gracing fans’ screens -- be it on TV or on the silver screen. He is aware he can take meetings via Zoom.

TMZ’s sources also said the actor feels Australia is more safe from COVID-19 than the United States. Based on data from Johns Hopkins, Australia currently has 18,730 confirmed COVID-19 cases. This is a stark difference from the United States’ 4.7 million cases and 155,000 deaths as of August 4, 7:34 p.m. AEST. 

Aside from Efron’s plans to move to Australia, his new show is also getting much attention online. Some science-loving fans were quick to point out issues with the pseudoscientific claims made on the show.

Such claims include how genetically engineered crops are poisonous to bees, putting one’s bare feet on the floor resets the body clock, and going vegan can cure diseases -- all have little to no scientific proof.

Netflix and Efron have yet to comment on the issues.
