From a recent photo that portrays Zac efron (with cap, beard and glasses) in the company of his new girlfriend, the comedian Eugenio Derbez launched a mocking comparison. Retrieving that image via Twitter, the actor from Dora and the Lost City (2019) suggested that his son José Eduardo resembles the American star. And, of course, that post blew up social media.

Among the subsequent reactions to the tweet, there were some outraged fans that the star of High School Musical (2006) and Baywatch (2017) was compared to Jose Eduardo Derbez.

On the other hand, a netizen gave consolation to those angry fans by suggesting that the person in the photo is not the real Hollywood celebrity but the famous « Chapo Efron. » This character went viral at the end of last year for allegedly personifying a perfect mix between Zac Efron and the Mexican drug lord ‘Chapo’ Guzmán. Do you remember?

Contrary to the outrage, a variety of tweets (like the following one) recognized with laughter that indeed the son of Eugenio Derbez and Victoria Ruffo bears similarities to the Californian actor. But there were also those who came out in defense of José Eduardo, presenting himself as the Mexican’s girlfriend. He even called the actor in No Returns « father-in-law »!

And it is not the first time that someone from the Derbez family could have found their « twin » abroad. Another Twitter user alluded to that episode – which occurred in May 2019 – in which Eugenio joked with the idea that a Venezuelan tennis player resembled his daughter Aislinn.

Finally, it is worth mentioning a tweet that evokes a truth about loving parents (and that justifies the comparison made by the famous comedian):

The last time we saw José Eduardo Derbez on television was in the company of his entire family, thanks to the Prime Video series Traveling with the Derbez (2019).

We saw Zac Efron recently at the head of the documentary show Zac Efron: Feet on the Ground, from Netflix. It will appear in the remake soon Three men and a baby, with the shelter of Disney Plus.

Toño Guzmán I have a very bad memory. Out of solidarity with my memories, I choose to lose myself too. Preferably in a movie theater.
