It was quite a shock for the owners of a gym in Doncaster when they saw Dwayne The Rock Johnson coming into their gym to work out a little bit in-between shoots for his new movie, Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw .
According to Press Association, Craie Carrera, the owner of the gym, said: “He seemed to have done some work finding out who me and my partner were, about the gym. He was very talkative, a nice guy, really genuine, just like an everyday person.”
He also said that there one of the former wrestler’s staff members has paid him a visit shortly before that: “A guy came in and asked if he could take a few pictures because someone famous was coming into the area. He just wanted some pictures of the gym so his client could see if it was up to par and wanted to see what the weight stacks were like and the dumbbells if they were heavy enough. We thought it was a bit strange but left him to it. I said as long as he puts his weights away, then it doesn’t matter who it is.”
When asked about The Rock’s physique, he answered: “He towers over you. He’s about 6ft 6in. He’s got fairly big arms – as a bodybuilder you’re eyeing up this sort of stuff all the time.”
Finally, here’s what the actor himself posted on Instagram when they were near Selby in North Yorkshire, capturing a car chase for the movie: “I’m in England now and honouring their Remembrance Day — while my heart is back home honouring our own men and women warriors of our U.S. military on Veteran’s Day. Me and my fellow crew members puttin’ in the hard work today on this blessed Sunday and enjoying the freedom that our countries’ veterans forged for us to have.”
