    Make Hollywood conform to you! 


    “When I first got to Hollywood, they didn’t know what the hell to do with me. I mean, I was this half-black, half-Samoan, 6’4, 275-pound pro-wrestler.”

  • “You know, I was told at that time, ‘Well, you gotta be a certain way. You gotta drop some weight. You gotta be somebody different. You gotta stop working-out. Stop doing the things I love…’”

    “You gotta stop calling yourself The Rock. What?!?!”


    When I first got to Hollywood, they didn’t know what the hell to do with me.


    “And for years, I actually bought into it because you think, ‘Oh, that’s what I’m supposed to do.’”

    “And I was miserable doing that. So, I made a choice. And the choice was, I wasn’t going to conform to Hollywood, I was going to make Hollywood conform to me.”
