Dwayne Johnson Interview – Fast & Furious 8 – “I tried to model myself after Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone”



Dwayne Johnson is always bursting with confidence. Whether he’s greeting his rabid fans, visiting children in a hospital, or promoting his movies, the hulking actor is one of the most vibrant personalities on earth.


Q:  You went through some difficult times growing up in Hawaii.  Are there still some sad memories attached to your life there?

JOHNSON:  … I needed to straighten myself out and thanks to bodybuilding I was able to gain self-respect and set definite goals in my life.  I tried to model myself after Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone and I knew that one day I would get into acting.
