No regrets: Zac Efron shows off “you only live once” tattoo as he promotes US box office flop New Year”s Eve
His latest movie may be bombing at the US box office but Zac Efron isn’t taking that too seriously if his new inking is anything to go by.
Appearing at a press conference in Tokyo, Japan to promote star-studded flick New Year’s Eve, the 24-year-old unveiled a brand new tattoo of the word ‘YoLo’ in a plain font.
It is thought to be an acronym for the well-known phrase ‘you only live once’, perhaps a statement that despite the film opening on one of the lowest box office weekends in US history, he regrets nothing.
