- Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood
- He is also one of the actors who gets paid the most for his roles
- However, this achievement doesn't come cheap - Dwayne says it is very demanding to be an actor
Hollywood hotshot, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, is one of the highest-paid actors between 2018 and 2019.
He doesn't really feel that he deserves this label though, according to IOL News. Dwayne says he is just a 'bankable actor'.
The Jumanji actor says that becoming the kind of actor that he is, takes a lot of hard work, especially in Tinseltown.
"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, 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."
Briefly.co.za gathered that the former WWE star feels it is his responsibility to entertain his fans. He says it is different to make fans happy as an actor from making them happy as a wrestler.
"Yes, being in the 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 important is trust your gut and trust your instincts on what the audience will really enjoy and love."
