Dwayne Johnson Interview – Central Intelligence – “Zac Efron is my inspiration”


Dwayne Johnson believes his A-list success in Hollywood after leaving behind the wrestling ring was largely down to timing.

“I got out right at the peak of my career with WWE,”the star explains, while his blue-t-shirt struggles to contain those gargantuan muscles. “I was very lucky. Had I left a year before, a year later, it could have been a very different story.”


Q: Zac Efron says you were his ‘fitspiration’.
JOHNSON: Zac Efron is my inspiration. That guy is a beast, and he is so intelligent about how he does it, he was giving me tips. I thought I knew it all but Zac, my man, I learned a lot from him.
