John Cena’s star power continues to rise in Hollywood, and even his fellow actors can’t contain their excitement when they see him.
During a recent interview on the red carpet for their movie “Fast X,” Brie Larson couldn’t help but shriek with joy as Cena ran by behind her. This heartfelt moment showcases Cena’s popularity and likability as both a WWE superstar and a Hollywood actor.
The incident took place while Larson was being interviewed about her role in “Fast X” by Entertainment Tonight. Out of nowhere, Cena sprinted past the interview, catching Larson and the interviewer off guard.
In the clip, Larson exclaims, “Ahh! There’s John Cena!” while jumping and flailing her hands in excitement. Cena then returns to Larson, catching his breath, and explains that he was trying to provide some action-still photography on the red carpet.
Both Cena and Larson play significant roles in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, despite being relatively new additions. Larson makes her debut in the series as “Tess,” a sympathetic agent who aids the main group of characters. Meanwhile, Cena returns for his second “Fast” movie, portraying Jakob Toretto, the brother of Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. In this film, Cena’s character takes on a heartwarming role as he looks after his brother’s son.
Cena’s portrayal in the movie aligns perfectly with his status as a fan favorite among younger WWE fans throughout his wrestling career. While his wrestling days may be winding down, Cena recently made a highly acclaimed return for WrestleMania 39, where he had a memorable match against Austin Theory, one of WWE’s biggest stars who once idolized Cena as a young fan.
