The Rock has worked across several amazing movie titles and franchises. While he is mostly famous for his action and comedy movies, Johnson also has some historical fiction under his belt. In fact, his very first film, The Scorpion King, was a historical fiction. Although the film did perform well at the box office, it still received a lot of backlash.  In a recently resurfaced interview, The Rock revealed a stunt mistake he made, which knocked down another stuntman. 

The video interview showcases a section of The Graham Norton Show. Johnson is known for his muscular build, and the show’s audience could imagine the damage taken by the stuntman. According to Johnson, “I had this big action sequence. And um I wound up hitting a stuntman and kind of clocking him super hard. He uh he was a little older he went down and I felt so bad. I was about defeated.”
