I like training for fighting and stuff but what he does is very specific and he looks after every muscle group he has. It's incredible."

As for Jason Statham, he warns admirers that you won't be seeing him shirtless in this movie. Dwayne, however, may not be able to say the same thing.

"This is one of the very few movies where I don't take my shirt off in," he shared. "Dwayne looks incredible."
