Dwayne Johnson Reveals Why It's 'Incredibly Difficult' To Be A Movie Star

Ah yes, the ultimate conundrum that is fame.

Sure, one day you could be riding in the skies, receiving adoring praise from the entire world and then you get too close to that blasted sun... Only to come crashing down towards the world like a drunken seagull.

Never drink and fly, people.

2019 was a pretty good year for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.


He was in a couple of hit movies, he's made plans to join up with the DC Universe movies, and he's absolutely rocked (thank you, thank you) the world of the internet.

He's just an all-around good guy.

Yes, he's one of the world's greatest movie stars at the moment.


But before you start thinking his life is easy, think again.

Recently, he did an interview where he was asked: "what's it like to be the biggest movie star in the world?"

And his answer was this:


"So, what it takes to become… we’ll just say a bankable actor – you guys could say ‘biggest movie star in the world’ – it takes, again, hard work and it takes perseverance. And again it takes context and perspective, especially when you get into this world of Hollywood and the business of Hollywood. Because it is so demanding and it’s incredibly difficult."

"Yes, being in the [wrestling] ring is incredibly difficult, but the scope of the audience and the world that you now entertain and are responsible for in movies is global."

"This is why it requires a consistent and very constant daily hard work. And also, very very important is trust your gut and trust your instincts on what the audience will really enjoy and love. That’s the most important thing."

This is why we love him.
