Wrestling fans tease The Rock for toothfairy roleMay 24th, 2010 - 4:32 am ICT by IANS
London, May 24 (IANS) Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been teased about his role as a tooth fairy in his latest movie by fans but insists he isn’t “fazed” by the comments.
The grappler-turned-actor, who stars in new fantasy film “The Tooth Fairy”, in which he dons a giant pair of wings to collect the incisors of small children, has revealed not everyone has been supportive of the comic role, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“There are definitely people who disagree with certain creative decisions you make… pleasing everyone is pretty hard,” The Rock said.
The 37-year-old says he is prepared to take on different roles because nothing “fazes” him now.
“Because of my wrestling background, nothing a director can throw at me on a set can faze me. I learned a long time ago how to be coachable… I’m trying to be very smart and focused with my decisions, but it isn’t like I sat down and thought, ‘Ok, now I want to go and take over the family market’,” he said.
