Zac Efron is one of Hollywood’s biggest heartthrobs, and fans are now convinced that he’s secretly tied the knot.
The Seventeen Again actor, 34, caused a whirlwind of speculation after posting a video of himself hanging out with a bear on Instagram.
The video sees the actor talk about his dating life to the bear, complaining that he’s accused of being a catfish by women online.
As the actor continues to talk about his life to the increasingly exacerbated bear, the camera focuses on his hand, showing a ring on his wedding finger.
The video was posted to tease an upcoming project with the caption: “Oh, hey there, bear! 6.14.22 Any guesses?”
While the ring only appeared briefly, it became the real talking point of the video for many fans, who took to the comments section to speculate.
One wrote: “The real bear in the room is the wedding ring," while a second questioned: "Is it just me or do you see a wedding band?"
A third added: "Um did Zac get married?" and a fourth wrote: "We need answers."
Someone else speculated that the ring was a part of the project, writing: "Thinking maybe this is for a movie?"
Another fan added: "I don't think it means anything, besides he'd say something about it."
However, there were some fans who were so distracted by the actor himself that they failed to notice the ring.
One gushed: “He is still a fr**ken dreamboat. I was 15 when HSM2 came out and i fell deeply in love with this talented man lol he just gets better with age!!! [sic]”
And at least one fan was willing to answer Efron's initial question, guessing: “The new Dr Dolittle???”
Efron’s last confirmed girlfriend was Vanessa Valladares, but the relationship ended in April of last year, Seventeen reports.
However, his reference to Tinder is rooted in reality.
Despite being one of Hollywood’s most desirable bachelors, no one could believe that he was actually on the app.
He told The Times: "Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me! They thought [my profile] was fake.”
"Dating is something I'll never be able to do," he continued. "As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I've impacted that person's life and they'll soon realise it.
"A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me."
