Not only do I think being nice and kind is easy but being kind, in my opinion, is important.
I found that with depression, one of the most important things you could realise is that you're not alone.
If I had to describe myself to an alien I'd say I was bigger than the average human, enjoy a drink or two with a good meal and have a bigger head than most. I'd also say I'm really handsome - especially if they were a female alien.
Check your ego at the door. The ego can be the great success inhibitor. It can kill opportunities, and it can kill success.
Life is anything but predictable.
I've always seen first responders as unsung heroes and very special people because, when everyone else is running away from danger, they run into it.
With drive and a bit of talent, you can move mountains. I know. I've done it.
For me, training is my meditation, my yoga, hiking, biking all rolled into one. Wake up early in the morning, generally around 4 o'clock, and I'll do my cardio on an empty stomach. Stretch, have a big breakfast, and then I'll go train.
Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.
I'm always asked, 'What's the secret to success?' But there are no secrets. Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.
I like to use the hard times in the past to motivate me today.
I knew credibility would come only in time and through earnest performances.
I was brought up as an only child, and we were very close. But when I was 14, we got evicted. We came home to a padlock, and I looked up at my mom and she was crying, and there was nothing to do.
We all live with cancer, whether it is present in ourselves or affects someone we love.
I'll never, ever be full. I'll always be hungry. Obviously, I'm not talking about food. Growing up, I had nothing for such a long time. Someone told me a long time ago, and I've never forgotten it, 'Once you've ever been hungry, really, really hungry, then you'll never, ever be full.'
If I love you, I show you I love you every day. Little things, big things.
Part of my daily regime is my glucosamine and, of course, a multitude of multivitamins. Branched-chain amino acids, glutamine, of course protein. I have one protein shake a day, and that is immediately after my training.
The single most powerful thing I can be is to be myself.
I do all my own stunts. I'm kidding.
To be immortalized in a ride is a very cooI thing.
My philosophy is, it's always very rewarding when you can make an audience laugh. I don't mind making fun of myself. I like self-deprecating comedy. But I'd like you to laugh with me occasionally, too.
I want to be a man who is truthful and who won't let pride get in the way of my ripping myself open to my partner and saying, 'Here I am. This is me.' I feel there's something powerful when a man reaches a point in his life when he can be completely vulnerable.
I would never win an award for not loving pizza.
I'm very low-key. I don't really blend in, so it's difficult to go out in public. I like to do things that are kind of quiet, whether it's a dinner at my house or a restaurant, or a movie night at home.
For me it came from the material. It was so well written and brought the opportunity to work with great actors. And of course the opportunity to 'mince about' was an added element that I wanted to take advantage of!
I enjoyed working with Stephen Merchant. He was wonderful. I've been such a big fan of his acting.
I was raised by strong women, and that DNA is in my daughter and wife.
Nutrition is so important. It can't be stressed enough.
Attitude and enthusiasm play a big part in my life. I get excited about the things that inspire me. I also believe in laughing and having a good time.
What I like to do is get the family in the pick-up truck... and then we just go for a drive. That's it!
Come on, you can't name a truck after a chick.
The sexiest thing that a woman can do, wear, and say all fall under one word to me: subtlety. To be subtle in the things that she does and the things she says and the things she wears - I appreciate the details.
I grew up where, when a door closed, a window didn't open. The only thing I had was cracks. I'd do everything to get through those cracks - scratch, claw, bite, push, bleed. Now the opportunity is here. The door is wide open, and it's as big as a garage.
I grew up in a musical family; the majority of my growing up was done in Hawaii. It's what we do. You sing, you dance, you play ukulele and you drink.
I didn't have to win, and winning wasn't important to me. Being world champion wasn't important to me. What was important to me was entertaining the audience, and whether that meant winning, losing, singing, or whatever it was on the live show we were doing every week, which was awesome, I was game for it.
As an athlete, you'd better laugh at yourself when you slip in the mud.
Around every corner, always protect the engine that powers you.
I've been through natural disasters. I lived down in Miami and was down there for Hurricane Andrew which was a Category 5. There were members of my family that thought they were going to die. Everyone was in the bathtub.
In wrestling, there's a shelf life, and some wrestlers don't pay attention to the shelf life.
I absolutely believed when I was young because the Tooth Fairy was always good to me. The Tooth Fairy generally left me a dollar or two dollars and, as a kid, that was a lot of money.
You don't sign up for a divorce when you get married. It's very painful. But it's taught me a great deal about myself.
You've got to keep your finger on the pulse of what your audience is thinking, and know what they'll accept from you.
That's a traditional Samoan dance. I was lucky that I was able to fly my cousins, who are professional dancers, up from Hawaii and they were able to be in the movie with me. We had a great time.
Oh, I can keep many secrets, so I would be a phenomenal secret agent. I love secrets.
It is no surprise that animation is Hollywood's most successful and innovative genre.
I liked his ability to deal with a lot of the negativity that surrounded him. Even though he was in a world that he didn't want to be in, he still saw the bigger picture.
When I was 8 years old, I saw 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of there and was so inspired. I loved the movie, and I knew I wanted to be that guy.
By the time I was 23 years old, I had multiple arrests.
If you check your ego at the door when it comes to comedy, you've got a pretty good shot at making a great movie that you can commit yourself to, you can jump off the proverbial cliff with, and have a great time, and the audiences respond to that.
Ain't nothing like a good cry.
But being on location and shooting, whether its in Puerto Rico or Atlanta, it always reminds me of how really cool my job can be. Interacting with the fans is one of the best parts of it.
Working out anchors my day.
The men I idolized built their bodies and became somebody - like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger - and I thought, 'That can be me.' So I started working out. The funny thing is I didn't realize back then that I was having a defining moment.
Football changed my life and it gave me a platform to get out my aggression and it gave me a sense of value.
Every once in a while I get the highly inappropriate proposal which is like, 'Wow, Really! You don't even know me and I don't know you at all, and you want that to happen? Tonight? Ok, I get off work at 7.30.'
I was a bit challenged when I was younger to stay on the right path.
I've been known to have a good step or two. I'm half Samoan, you know, and part of our culture is singing and dancing daily.
Barack Obama did tell me that I was one of Michelle Obama's favorite actors.
When I was ten, I won the horseshoe-throwing contest at summer camp. I was also the Wiffle ball champion in my town.
I was fortunate and I was lucky that I had a couple of people in my life who cared about me. I had good, loving parents.
What was important to me was entertaining the audience, and whether that meant winning, losing, singing, or whatever it was on the live show we were doing every week, which was awesome, I was game for it.
As we all know, sequels can be tricky.
Yeah, I was a delinquent. It was when I was in the ninth grade. I was doing stupid stuff, and the cops came into the class. I was humiliated more than anything.
I have an immense amount of respect for acting. I've always loved movies and was always fascinated by movie-making. But to become an actor, I wanted to commit myself.
My goal was never to be the loudest or the craziest. It was to be the most entertaining.
My mom cleaned toilets for a long time, and she'd seen a lot of terrible things, but she was still the strength of our family. And there are women like that all across the country - all around the world - who show that type of fortitude.
When I say I'm going to take care of a woman, I don't just mean physically or sexually or romantically. I'm going to take care of her emotionally and spiritually. I'm going to take care of her in all ways. I take a lot of pride in that today.
My reputation precedes me now.
I love WWE, and I love that platform. There is no other platform in the world that gives me that instant gratification. There is just no other platform.
In the '60s and '70s and early '80s, the trainers would grind you, and eventually they would break something - they would break an ankle in ways that it would heal. It was just the way of the business, to ensure that you learned respect for wrestling.
If you tell me there's something I can't do, I'll want to do it even more. Especially when it comes to entertaining.
My parents were dealing with evictions and repossessions and electricity getting shut off, and I just realized that I had to get it together.
Wrestling was like stand-up comedy for me. Every night I had a live audience of 25,000 people to win over. My goal was never to be the loudest or the craziest. It was to be the most entertaining.
The one thing I couldn't identify with was the blue cowboy outfit he put on.
I'm a passionate, hardcore fisherman. Biggest fish I caught? A 200-pound tarpon.
I like the idea of making a big, fun, adventure type of movie.
If you ever see The Rock working out in the gym, don't think you can just go up and disturb his workout and expect him to take a picture. He's there to work, so kindly just pass the silverback on by or he'll rip your face off.
In Hollywood, a lot of times when something is in development, it just takes a lot of time.
My freshman and sophomore years in high school, I spent a lot of time trying to get back on the right track. I was arrested multiple times by the time I was 16, so I had a little harder time trying to adjust like a lot of us do in high school.
I think that always makes it fun, trying to create a heroic character and putting your own twist on it and injecting your own personality into it.
When I was a kid at four years old, that's when I started amateur wrestling with my dad and family. And when that's instilled in you, it never goes away.
I used to get into a lot of fights.
I've never gone wrong trusting my gut.
The only film I've enjoyed starring a wrestler was Mickey Rourke in 'The Wrestler.'
With all the... success that I've been lucky enough to get? That doesn't happen unless the home life is solid.
Some of the kids in school used to call my father a fake or a phony. That kind of thing brought on a few fights.
When you have something as unique and special as the 'Fast & Furious' franchise, you want to create an experience for the fans that they can only feel and experience at Universal Parks.
I think there are a number of things that you can do to encourage your kids' dreams, but I do believe in speaking by experience of having a lot of help along the way, stumbling in the past. We've all stumbled, and we certainly all deserve to get up and walk again.
Mickey Rourke's character in 'The Wrestler' - that was my dad, that was my uncles, that was so many members of my family. It was the only thing they knew. And then they would end up wrestling for a hundred bucks, go to autograph signings for two hundred bucks.
Maybe I'll give Broadway a try. But you know what would be great? Hosting the Oscars. I promise you, that would be a show no one forgot.
Because of my wrestling background, nothing a director can throw at me on a set can faze me.
I knew early on that I wanted to entertain in some form. And I knew I would work as hard as anyone to do it.
I never wanted to stay in one genre; I never wanted to be pigeon-holed or defined as the actor who only worked in one genre. I want to be able to work in all different genres. For me it's fun, and that's how I grow as an actor.
Wrestling was like stand-up comedy for me.
Wrestling is intimate. You can reach out and touch the wrestlers.
When I was a kid, I loved Elvis, and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. But I had no connection to Hollywood - and being a movie star was such a far-fetched idea, growing up in Hawaii.
The Revlon Run/Walk effort to focus on women's cancer has my wholehearted support and gratitude.
Playing big, heroic characters with heart is always a lot of fun. I enjoy making movies like that, and a lot of people love to live vicariously through those characters.
I can hold my own when it comes to burping. I've got a good feeling that I could win a championship.
The successful men I admired all built their bodies.
