Ver esta publicación en Instagram Very special movie that our @sevenbucksprod is honored to make. @arobles125 was born with one leg and refused to wear a prosthetic so he removed it when he was just three years old. Overcoming impossible (so they said) odds, he goes on to become multi time All American, an NCAA wrestling champion and one of the most inspiring stories sports achievement has ever known. Thank you @ARobles125 for your trust in us to share your incredible journey with the world. Proud of you, brother. Let’s work. #UNSTOPPABLE #TheAnthonyRoblesStory Una publicación compartida de therock (@therock) el 6 Nov, 2019 a las 10:42 PST

"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 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.""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.""Not only do I think being nice and kind is easy but being kind, in my opinion, is important.""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."
