Mundy was completely caught off guard by the exciting celeb run-in, as he was made to believe that Johnson was showing up to interview him during the San Andreas junket.
Mundy and Johnson go way back, OK, maybe not way back, but the two did have a fairly awkward encounter during the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just made wedding history.

Dwayne Johnson’s New Warrior Code
5 things the wrestler-turned-movie star tells himself to overcome any obstacle

In his show-business job, Dwayne Johnson is flexing personified. We know him as the ultra-buff hero who knocks out costumed titans in the wrestling ring or dispatches CGI monsters in the movies. Winning is assured because it’s been scripted, sometimes even amped up with special effects.
Out of the spotlight, he’s had a life—and then some. Just one of Johnson’s low points over the past 43 years could anchor a schlocky cinematic comeback story. Lump all his baggage together, though, and it’d make for a depressing, exhilarating, almost unbelievable yarn.
You’ll find out about all that and more, including a Rock-approved workout plan for sleeve-busting arms, in the June issue of Men’s Health magazine,available now via the iTunes Newsstand.
First, though, here are the words The Rock lives by—and you can, too.
- Personal Mantra
”Let’s just get better.”
- Sex Euphemism
“The Horizontal Hula.”
- Wake-Up Time
“I like to beat the sun up. I function pretty good on five hours of sleep.”
- Workout Ethos
“If it’s an exercise you don’t like, generally there’s some value in it.”
- Finding Success
“There is no substitute for hard work. All it takes is all you got.”
For more from Johnson, including his workout plan for sleeve-busting arms, pick up the June issue of Men’s Health magazine, available now on newsstands.
Plausibility isn’t usually a concern for the fans who flock to see action star Dwayne Johnson flex his formidable muscles onscreen. But just like the wrestler-actor himself, his May 29 release, “San Andreas,” which revolves around a catastrophic earthquake, has a bit more substance behind the action.
“We had the top seismologists challenge the script,” says Johnson, who will be honored at a hand- and footprint ceremony May 19 at TCL’s Chinese Theater. “They walked away saying everything in this script is plausible, including the tsunami. I had never gone into a project that had that level of research and detail by the experts.”
“San Andreas” comes on the heels of Johnson’s April box office bonanza “Furious 7” and is part of a summer one-two punch that shows just how much he’s expanded his oeuvre over the past few years. Just weeks after “San Andreas” destroys Los Angeles on the bigscreen, Johnson will produce and star in his first scripted series, “Ballers,” which bows June 21 on HBO.

BURLINGTON, Mass. — Dwayne Johnson, better known until recently as the Rock, is a touch-y guy. A hand on the shoulder, a guiding elbow tap — moving across a studio here for his next movie, he used his 6-foot-4 frame as a form of leadership. Not that you’d be likely to miss him otherwise.
Mr. Johnson made sure of that, hoisting a 10-foot-ladder around scurrying crew members and clowning with a makeup artist, flinching when she patted his brow. As any fan who has followed him from the wrestling ring to the big screen knows, Mr. Johnson is, above all, a goofball.
The entertaining thing came naturally, early on. “I used to think I was Elvis, Sam Cooke,” he said. “I’d perform Richard Pryor monologues, like softly, because my mom didn’t know I was listening, sneaking the tapes, at the time. I was 9.”
LOS ANGELES – Finally, The Rock has arrived… in Hollywood.
Dwayne Johnson’s films have grossed over $2 billion since his debut in “The Mummy Returns” in 2001. His new movie – action thriller “San Andreas,” which opens nationwide on May 29 – serves as the latest reminder Johnson possesses the acting chops and versatility to lead a major Hollywood production.
Despite the distance between Tinseltown and Titan Towers, Johnson remains the “People’s Champ.” The grounded megastar offered his perspective on Hollywood success, his future in wrestling, and even commented on the “Deflategate” controversy.
“I had a coach, his name was Ed Orgeron, and he was our defensive line coach at the University of Miami,” said Johnson, who helped the Hurricanes capture the NCAA football national championship in 1991. “He’s a phenomenal coach and crazy as all hell. His sentiment to something like this is how we feel as defensive players.”
Johnson was fond of the expression, “It doesn’t matter!” during his time in wrestling. The same can be said for his opinion on over-inflated footballs, under-inflated ones, and the Wells Report.
“We were raised in an environment at the University of Miami where Ed would say, ‘We don’t give a f—,’” explained Johnson. “You go after the quarterback the exact same way. You pin your ears back and get after it. And if the quarterback is able to get the ball off, then it’s your fault.”
“Extra’s” Charissa Thompson sat down with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to talk about his new film, “San Andreas.”
The wrestler-turned-actor, who plays a divorced rescue helicopter pilot searching for his teenage daughter after a massive earthquake hits California, revealed he could relate to the character as the divorced dad of his own teenage daughter, Simone.
“I know what it’s like to be divorced, I know what it’s like to struggle in relationships, I know what it’s like to have a pretty good job and be pretty good at your job, but at the same time have insecurities,” he explained.
Johnson continued to say he drew on his real life experiences, “I drew on the awesome relationship I have today with my teenage daughter cause there’s no greater bond than daddy-daughter.”
Just last year, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starred in “Hercules,” which grossed more than $243 million worldwide. Now he’s looking to shake up the box office again, with his new earthquake disaster film, “San Andreas.” Hewing to the theme of the movie, “The Insider with Yahoo” correspondent Michael Yo caught up with the 43-year-old dad to find out just how prepared he is for the Big One. Check out this video to hear which two of his three “San Andreas” co-stars – Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Hart or Vin Diesel – The Rock would save in a quake, and tune in to “The Insider with Yahoo” on TV Tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
