"There was a fully-formed little bird in the egg," he told Kimmel. "It wasn't that bad. I ate, like, three more that day."

The video shows Efron peeling the egg - which had been fertilised, left to mature and boiled before it hatched - pouring vinegar on the contents and swallowing them in one go.

The actor said that the dish, which is believed to be an aphrodisiac, tasted "like chicken broth".

He told Kimmel: "There was, like, a hard part with, like, the beak and stuff. I didn't want to eat that."

Efron stars in The Paperboy alongside Nicole Kidman and John Cusack. The film, directed by Lee Daniels, was released in the US on Friday (October 5). A UK premiere has yet to be announced.
