Gina Carano admires Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

May 21st, 2013

Gina Carano loved working with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The 'Fast & Furious 6' actress plays a federal agent teamed up with Johnson's Luke Hobbs in the action film and says she truly admired her co-star's work ethic and relates to him because they both had sports backgrounds before entering Hollywood.

Johnson began his career as a WWE wrestler, while Carano found fame as a mixed martial arts cage fighter and was then scouted to star in Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire'.

She told Collider.com: ''He's just a really wonderful man. I've heard that about him. People say, 'I just love working with Dwayne', and it was exactly that. He's such a pleasure to be around.

''At the same time, for me, knowing where he's been and gone and kind of having a similar [background] - not exactly the same, but a relatability to that - I have so much respect for that.

''Then, his work ethic and his professionalism ... I have never seen a man work so hard. He was up at 3am working out, then going to set, being a lead/main character, doing so much output. I was like, 'When do you have time for yourself?' He's really like a Superman.''
