Dwayne Johnson’s advice to John Cena in Hollywood
John Cena was a bit confused when he started his acting career in 2006. He was in his mid-twenties and wanted to pursue a WWE career as his top priority. However, after acting in three movies of WWE Studios, Cena got a breakout role in other Hollywood projects. The first movie that brought him widespread acclaim was Trainwreck in 2015.
Cena recalled in his interview in GQ on YouTube during his Peacemaker series promotion, how The Rock’s advice helped him prior to the audition for the Trainwreck movie.
Cena recalled what Dwayne said to him, “And deadpan Dwayne was just like ‘Just be yourself, man. They called you in for a reason. Just be who you are.’ And I was.”
By the time Cena got the opportunity for the Trainwreck movie, he was already a megastar in WWE. Dwayne’s advice really helped Cena crack the audition successfully. Cena wanted this role as he knew this could be his breakout role in Hollywood.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson never left the fans unimpressed, and he has always kept up for his colleagues from his previous work. Dwayne has a massive impact on the industry.
