The actor also discussed his daughter's first birthday and reacted to Gal Gadot penning a sweet tribute to him for 'Time' magazine.
Jealousy, envy and Doritos!
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is opening up about his bromance with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle costar, Kevin Hart, and it seems things are going downhill between the hilarious pair.
“It’s called envy and jealousy and unfortunately Kevin and I, we've done multiple movies together, and that’s where our relationship has sunk to,” Johnson joked to ET’s Brooke Anderson at Tuesday’s Time 100 Gala in New York. “It has devolved into jealousy and envy and he looks at me and has this look in his face like, ‘I don’t want to be around you,’ and he slowly eats his Doritos when he looks at me. But it’s okay because I go over to him and I’m like, ‘Hey buddy, yeah -- get a laugh out of everybody.’”
Johnson was responding to Hart downing bags of the popular snack on the set of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, despite trying to eat healthier.
Food indulgences aside, Johnson said filming of the movie’s sequel is going well and he “can’t wait” for fans to see it. Shooting is currently underway in Hawaii, Atlanta, New Mexico and Calgary, where Johnson says the cast is “having a blast.”
Much to the former wrestler’s delight, he was able to be away from set and be home for his daughter, Tiana’s, recent first birthday.
“I was just so happy to be home and be able to celebrate with my baby girl,” said Johnson, who was looking dapper in a Ralph Lauren Purple Label double-breasted dark camel suit from the Fall 2019 collection. “I have three beautiful daughters and I’m the luckiest guy.”
Adding to his recent joy, the star is one of six people featured on the cover of Time magazine for the publication's latest Time 100 list.
Johnson said he never dreamed he would be considered cover material by the outlet.
“There are covers of magazines as you launch into a career like this where you think, ‘I'd like to be on that cover.’ For example, Rolling Stone or People’s Sexiest Man Alive,” he said. “But Time magazine wasn’t anything that I had actually imagined, so when I got the call it was a really special, incredibly meaningful and just representative of a lot of hard work but also of a lot of good people, around me who helped support and shape a vision over the years.”
Inside the issue, Johnson’s Fast and Furious costar, Gal Gadot, penned an essay honoring the actor, writing how there is “no one in Hollywood quite like Dwayne Johnson.”
“The idea that she took the time to do that, I really appreciate because time is our most valuable asset,” Johnson said, reacting to Gadot’s tribute. “We don’t have a lot of it. Time is money! She was so, so articulate and she’s so beautiful in her words.”
