It must be difficult for an artist to walk around in public without being recognized, especially when he’s 1.96 tall, has a mountain of muscle and several landmark films like Dwayne Johnson.
In an interview with the Comic Book, the star of “Jumanji” and “The Fast and the Furious” said he had already given up on trying to go anywhere in public without attracting the attention of fans. .
“Dude, even after the coronavirus pandemic is over, I will continue to walk around in a mask trying to disguise myself, with a hat, glasses, a fake beard and an overcoat. Still, I think people are always going to point their fingers and say, “Isn’t that The Rock over there?
“I kind of gave up going into public places without being recognized. I no longer know what anonymity is.
Finally, he commented on ‘Red Alert’, his new action film for Netflix, and praised his colleague Ryan Reynolds.
“I loved doing ‘Red Alert’ because I felt challenged by Ryan’s intelligence. He’s brilliant, but he’s also very disciplined. He knows how to hold back his laughter at the right time, not me. Sometimes I’m wrong about it, but Ryan is totally focused on what he’s doing. We’ve been friends for about 20 years, so it was very comfortable playing alongside him, and I learned a lot from following in his footsteps and loved knowing that he admires me too. And that’s what you see in the movie.
In addition to the duo, “Red Alert” also stars Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman 1984”).
Remember that the feature is now available on Netflix.
