The Hollywood heavyweight had to laugh after his huge frame ended up shutting down filming and forcing some big changes on the set of his upcoming movie Red Notice because he couldn’t fit in a Porsche.
Sharing a brilliant photo of the awkward moment on Instagram, Dwayne revealed: ‘Aaaaand guess who’s too big to fit in yet another sports car and now we have to change the entire shot sequence around…
‘For our @netflix globe trotting heist movie, RED NOTICE, my writer/director @rawsonthurber (pictured here on the ground setting up the new camera angle) wrote this INSANE chase sequence where I hop in this iconic Porsche and be the bad ass behind the wheel that I am.
‘Well, after months of prep and costs buying and shipping this car over to the states – it’s time to rehearse the big chase sequence.’
It’s safe to say things didn’t go to plan, as The Rock realised his back was ‘a bit too wide’ to actually get all the way into the sports car.
Describing the scene, he continued: ‘DJ continues to struggle trying to shimmy into this Porsche like a big ass brown marshmallow getting shoved into a coin slot.’
At first, director Rawson Thurber thought Dwayne might have been messing with him, but it turned out that wasn’t the case.
The former WWE Champion added: ‘After about 15 seconds of uncomfortable silence… Rawson, myself and the entire crew just started laughing our asses off!!
‘F**k it. Welcome to 2020. In the end we showed our agility to think quick on our feet and found “creative” ways to still get the shot.’
Only The Rock – at least everyone involved took it in their stride!
