Hugh Jackman's got Zac Efron's back — and once he's got it, he's ready to carry it to safety!

The superstars were involved in a filming an intense scene in the upcoming movie musical "The Greatest Showman," a circus epic, when Jackman was directed to carry Efron from a burning building.

Zac told MTV News, "Some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot."

The two were filmed bursting out of a burning building, but how close did things get?

Zac said, "It looked great on camera. We didn't know it [at the time], but it was pretty intense. I watched playback, and he saved me from a burning building. It later exploded that night. It was a set, but it later burned down."

As stressful as the moment was, Zac was able to joke about it. "It was pretty awesome. Hugh Jackman saving you from a burning building? It's every girl's dream."

Zac's next hot project? "Baywatch" — out May 26.
