The comedian and actor was telling Chris Moyles about his new boyfriend – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Jack Whitehall He was telling Chris Moyles about his fitness regime… which includes going to the gym with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!
“Yeah, I’d say I’m a rocker friend,” Jack says of his girlfriend jungle trip Share the star. “I mean, we don’t like hanging out, but we text friends.”
The pair have become gym buds, but Jack is always eager to acquiesce in knowing The Rock.
“The gym is definitely his domain,” he says. “The only time I got in there, he had all the machinery set up. He had taken out all the weights, all the bolts, and removed all the weights from all the rails, so it was just the rails holding the seats.”
The bars alone are heavy enough, and Jack was still wary of picking one up.
“I thought I wouldn’t risk it, because if I can’t lift one of the bars and then get caught under it without any weights, that’s a tragic moment. And then The Rock has to come and pick it up with one hand…”
Jack’s latest movie is Clifford The Big Red Dog.
Chris suggests that with such a famous friend, Jack could soon see himself in a Marvel movie.
He replied, “I should get Marvel’s body first,” my agent told me.
“He said, if you want to be in one of those movies, you have to go to the gym. I said, I can’t get into the movie first and then go to the gym… because I don’t. You want to do an effort of work and then you don’t have to Movie?
“I want the contract signed, sealed and ready to go. Then I’ll do some practice.”
