- Promoting the release of GI Joe: Retaliation on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D, former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spoke to Metro.co.uk about how important GI Joe was to him growing up as a young child.
“I played with my GI Joe and Star Wars action figures every day. They mingled. I was always creating scenarios with them, so, looking back, they were very important,” said Johnson. The cool, emotional connectivity to all that, with me coming full circle by starring in this movie, is a very cool thing.”
Johnson also discussed his relationship with Bruce Willis, his co-star in GI Joe: Retaliation.
“That guy is something else. I’ve been buddies with Bruce for a while. He’s iconic. He’s been one of the world’s biggest movie stars for a long time, so us together, guns in our hands, saving the world as GI Joes, was cool,” said Johnson.
