The 16 Time World Champion John Cena is busy promoting his upcoming films including his small role in Barbie. Cena revealed how he met Margot Robbie and got a role in the film during an interview recently.
While being on the TODAY’s show, John Cena talked on various topics making his another historic appearance on the show.
Cena talked about his role in his upcoming movie Fast X featuring Vin Diesel. Fast X is supposed to be the last film in the Fast and Furious series.
Cena will be also portraying a mermaid in the upcoming Barbie movie featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in prominent roles. The 16 time world champion provided some context on how he got the role during his interview.
“Honestly, it was a happy accident…In an accidental run in with Margot Robbie, I said, ‘I will pretty much do whatever you guys need because I really enjoy the movie.’ And they asked me if I wanted to be a merman. And I said, ‘Yeah, sure.'”
During his interaction with Margot, Cena was shooting for Fast X while Margot was shooting for Barbie. Fast X was also conveniently filming across the street from the Barbie crew. In addition to starring in the lead role of Barbie, Margot Robbie also serves as one of the producers. So, when Cena randomly ran into his friend Margot Robbie, the opportunity for him to join the “Barbie” cast presented itself quite naturally.
