John Cena recently spoke with Rolling Stone about his WWE career and much more. Here are the highlights.
On doing more movies:
“Nah,” he says. “I really, really, really love my job, so it’s not like I’m trying to quit wrestling to do movies. They just all seemed like cool things to do. I mean, I’d love to be the bad guy in an action movie, because then people would get to see another side of me they don’t get to see. But action hero again? I’d be playing who I already play on TV, only in a shittier setting, with no crowd to tell you did good.”
On not wanting to be married again and not having kids:
“A lot of that was because of my inability to be a good husband, but then Nicole strolled into my life, and that did it,” he says. He and his latest love do have issues, however, mainly revolving around marriage, kids, their dog Winston, and his love of his job. “Look,” he says, “I know I cannot handle raising a child. It’s like with the dog. My biggest thing to Nicole about the dog was: Love dogs, but I can’t contribute to taking care of one. I don’t have the time. And just because everyone else is happy with children doesn’t mean that’s how I have to live. I’ve been upfront about this. I just have things I need to get done. It’s not negotiable. We’ve been to therapy over it. I don’t think it will ever be over with. I’m stubborn as fuck and extremely selfish as well. I don’t want kids, I don’t want marriage. That’s me just saying, ‘Hey, this is my life, and this is how I’m going to live.'” And why should he not?
