John Cena Talks About His Acting Career And Being Against Marriage

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?

    Well I meant in WWE, his dad never worked for them.

  • Hunter_13

    in this case it will be the third.. Cena is 2nd generation already

  • Solid

    Jeez I didn’t know he bragged about it, nice guy… I hope his ex is still cashing the sweet alimony cheques.

    You have to wonder if Nikki ever thinks “I wonder if he cheated on me this week” or is just happy to live the life with Cena’s cash?

  • Hunter_13

    well Cena… now you know how to get support from the haters…. just talk about marriage in your promos


    well seeing as how they’ve been together for years and he hasn’t cheated I’d have to disagree with you on that. Not being a good husband doesn’t necessarily have to do with being faithful.

  • oppa

    Very true. He used to brag to the Coach about the different women he was sleeping with. I think there’s a clip of him on Howard Stern bragging about sleeping around also. At the end of the day, Nikki isn’t a victim if she’s staying around for this. He’s been telling her what kind of guy he is and that won’t change.

  • Solid

    Well considering he allegedly (well pretty much) cheated on his ex-wife with a few people (Mickey James amongst them) I guess he’s just figured its best not to get ‘flair’d’ again in future settlements.

    Hustle, Infidelity, Disrespect. 😛

  • oppa

    He can’t be a good husband is a nice way of saying he won’t be faithful to her if given the opportunity.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Very well stated. “Cena”. I agree with the marriage and children thing. Many “guys” just arent’ ready because we still have things that we NEED to do.

  • Russ

    He has probably seen what has happened to Hogan and Flair because of their divorces and made a smart decision. I am with him on the no marriage stance. It keeps the gold diggers on a leash.

  • Chad Boswell

    Good, we don’t need a 2nd generation Cena. 😛

  • nom

    mariage is a scam for men anyway. You lose half your possessions and a good portion of your future earnings to your ex. It is fine to contribute for your children but spouse alimony should be abolished.

  • TheFizPop

    Fairplay, honesty is best, already have enough daddy issues people in the world. Great for lonely nights, but not for anything more!
