– Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson detailed his experience working on the Hercules film project with the following message on his Instagram account:
“You know when you go to the zoo and that one Silverback just stares coldly at you wanting to rip you apart cause he’s just tired of being in captivity… This is my 5th month of a strict 7 meal a day diet, daily 345am wake ups to work out 2x’s before coming to set. Shoot intense scenes for 12hrs, but before that Im in my hair & make up trailer for 4hrs getting prodded, pulled, pushed, glued, painted with tattoo cover, applying animal teeth punctures, scars, claw slashes, dirt & blood by a multitude of handlers. The longest & most challenging movie I’ve ever filmed. Worth every minute of the grind, cause we’re making something epic. #HERCULESMovie #SilverbackNeedsADonut #StopProddingMyPec”
