Jack Black Was Actually Infatuated With Muscular Dwayne Johnson in 2017 Movie That Revived a $2 Billion Franchise

Apart from his electrifying persona and magnetic charm, Dwayne Johnson’s godly physique is enough to leave a grown man in complete fascination. And in this case, the grown man is the fan-favorite Jack Black, who wasn’t able to get over Johnson’s muscular figure during their time together working on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Following The Rock’s weird attachment with Jungles, 2017’s Jumanji isn’t only one of his best movies but was also able to revive the franchise after the 1995’s Jumanji, starring Robin Williams. Considering that the 2017 version was inching towards a more comedic approach, one of the film’s most memorable sequences involved Jack Black and it seems he wasn’t acting in one of it.

Jack Black shared a magical bond with Dwayne Johnson

Even though Dwayne Johnson has often been criticized for playing himself in every project he is involved in, the one thing that people can’t deny about him is his unreal work ethic. Despite being one of the biggest names in the world of entertainment, the actor never shies away from hardship, and even Jack Black commended the Black Adam star for his dedication. Jack Black also debunked the rumors surrounding the actor bearing an ego bigger than his muscles and claimed that it cannot be further from the truth, as they developed a magical bond during their time together. He said,

“You would think that egos would collide, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dwayne ‘The Rock Johnson and I shared a magical bond. We didn’t need words, we just exchanged energy. Eye contact turned into a soul-searching industrial complex of exchange.”
