Dwayne Johnson: I want to take Willis to dinner

Dwayne Johnson has spoken about how much he admires his mother and why he’d like to take his G.I. Joe co-star Bruce Willis out to dinner.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants to treat Bruce Willis to dinner.

The pair star in G.I. Joe: Retaliation together, with Dwayne portraying Roadblock in the sequel to the hit 2009 fantasy action film.

The Rock reveres Bruce and felt privileged to be acting alongside him in Retaliation.

Still, Dwayne is pretty sure who would be the victor should the pair get in a real life fight.

“I would not wanna go against Bruce Willis because he is the godfather of action! But would I take him? Yes I’d take him… to dinner, that’s where I can take him!” Dwayne told Cover Media at the London red carpet premiere of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

“You know, he’s my buddy and I love him and I’ve looked up to him for a very long time.”

Although Dwayne has a professional wrestling background, he confesses shooting the film was gruelling physically.

“Very difficult! Was about a 13 to 14 week prep for this,” he shared.

“Plus at the same time I was preparing to go back into the WWE so I had wrestling training camp going on while we were doing this so it was a nice balance. Now I’ve had to ratchet it up for Hercules, it’s nonstop!”

Dwayne is impressed with the way G.I. Joe: Retaliation merchandise turned out.

There apparently was a huge need to get the action figures to accurately represent the actors.

“The only competition was to make sure that they were anatomically correct!” Dwayne joked.

Although the star is set to, like his friend Bruce, become an action icon, Dwayne confesses he is a softie in multiple ways.

“Who’s my hero? My mom,” he declared.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be released in US cinemas March 28.
