Dwayne Johnson was inspired to go into films by 'Indiana Jones'.

The muscular actor - who has played a variety of roles in movies including 'The Scorpion King' and 'Tooth Fairy' - saw Harrison Ford as the Nazi-fighting hero at the age of eight and knew he wanted to work in films from then.

He said: "When I was eight years old, I watched 'Indiana Jones' for the first time. I fell in love with movies then and I wanted to be that guy.

"I was a big fan of 'Harrison Ford' when I was younger, so, even though he wasn't Arnold Schwarzenegger, he was still a guy who was able to kick a*s and be charming and witty and be intelligent. So I loved that!"

Despite being inspired by an adventure film, he wanted to work in other genres following a number of action movies of his own.

He told Total Film: "I wanted the material that I wasn't getting. I wanted to represent my acting. I had been passing on my action material - just wasn't for me."
