Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson discussed playing with GI Joe action figures growing up during an interview with Metro.co.uk.
“I played with my GI Joe and Star Wars action figures every day,” Rock said. “They mingled. I was always creating scenarios with them, so, looking back, they were very important. 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”
