The 46-year-old recently appeared on BBC ONE’s program, The One Show, alongside the director of Argylle, Matthew Vaughn. The duo appeared on the show to promote their upcoming movie. While discussing the film, Cena revealed what prompted him to be a part of the project in the first place. Was it the money? No, it was his love for the previous works of Vaughn. Cena talked highly about the director of the film, Michael Vaughn, “I’m violating a restraining order; I’m supposed to stay 50 feet apart. I chased him down, and I really just wanted to be a part of his work. Kingsmen struck me so deeply; literally, the quote of “A gentleman is a modern-day knight and the suit is his armor”—he’s the reason you see me in my uniform. This is where I feel most comfortable, and it’s because of him.”

He further added, “So when I found out he was doing ‘Árgylle’ and I wanted to be a part, he actually tried to pitch me; he’s like, “We’ll have this thing…it’s kinda this, but it might become,” and I was like, ‘Stop, I’m in, let’s go to work’. So I’m really so happy to be a part of the ‘Argylle family, and man, do we have a great movie to show. “
