Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed in a post Sunday on Instagram that he couldn’t fit into a Porsche that was bought and shipped to the United States for his latest film.
“Aaaaand guess who’s too big to fit in yet another sports car and now we have to change the entire shot sequence around,” the 48-year-old actor captioned his post on Instagram about filming for his movie “Red Notice” with Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds.

“For our @netflix globe trotting heist movie, RED NOTICE, my writer/director @rawsonthurber (pictured here on the ground setting up the new camera angle) wrote this INSANE chase sequence where I hop in this iconic Porsche and be the bad ass behind the wheel that I am,” he added. “Well, after months of prep and costs [money] buying and shipping this car over to the states – it’s time to rehearse the big chase sequence.” (RELATED: Gal Gadot Hypes Upcoming ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ With Unreal Shot)
The “Central Intelligence” star then went on to share exactly what happened on the set when the director Rawson and Johnson were ready to shoot the scene. You can read it in its entirety here. But basically Johnson attempted to get into the car and got “stuck” because “his back is a bit too wide.”
He wrote that, he continued to “struggle trying to shimmy into this Porsche like a big ass brown marshmallow getting shoved into a coin slot” with the director finally realizing he couldn’t fit.
The “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” star said after a few “uncomfortable” seconds of silence the director, actor and the entire crew just started “laughing” their “asses off” and chucked it all up to this year.
For those wondering if another car was brought on for ‘The Rock” or what ended up happening, the superstar actor said they found “‘creative'” ways to still get the shot.”
“Red Notice” hits the streaming site next year.
