QUICK QUOTES: John Cena on if he’ll ever play a superhero in a movie, who supported his dreams as a kid, being a role model

John Cena was recently interviewed by The Toronto Sun to promote his role in The Wall. He also touched on a couple of wrestling subjects. Here are the highlights:

If he’ll have a second career in movies:

“Man, that would be great if it could happen. [Laughs] I’m certainly more comfortable now with the roles I have than I was 10 years ago. Anyway, I’m glad if you think so — hopefully it means I can make some more movies!”

If his main job is being a role model to kids:

“I don’t consider that a job. I consider that a privilege, that I have a message powerful enough to get young people to listen — ‘Never give up.’ And to get them to pay attention to stuff like the impression they leave on people. And sometimes it doesn’t make me the coolest kid in school, but I’m very happy with the message I have to send. Very happy to be a role model.”

Who supported his dreams when he was younger:

“I think I was just fortunate enough to be surrounded by a wave of individuals who affected my life. And that starts with growing up with four brothers, and having supportive parents, and wonderful coaches as a young athlete, and the influence of friends with an equal work ethic. And now just surrounding myself with like-minded people, people who work hard and are motivated to keep moving themselves forward in a better fashion.”

If he’ll ever play a superhero in a movie:

“I do my cape wearing for the WWE.”
