Good ‘calm before the storm’ chat w/ my strength and conditioning coach Dave Rienzi before launching into my double workout session for our #ProjectRock Under Armour drop this spring and summer called CHASE GREATNESS. This shot is deceiving since there’s about 25 production crew members off to the side ready to shoot. But everyone waits til the pre workout geek juice kicks in 🤓
Incredible Sunday news. It’s official, #JUMANJI debuts big as the #1 movie in all of CHINA 🇨🇳. A huge THANK YOU to the Chinese people and I can’t wait to return to China later this year. #JUMANJI #1 #XieXie 🤙🏾🇨🇳
All I can say is give me an uncomfortable hug girlfriend! This global #JUMANJI PHENOMENON is bananas. For the third week in a row you’ve made #Jumanji the #1 MOVIE IN THE WORLD. Very rare. So beyond grateful you’re having so much fun and loving our movie. Luv you back. #JUMANJI #IMAX #1WorldWide 🌎
It’s all come down to this moment. Training and dieting hard for weeks for tomorrow’s (Saturday) big #ProjectRock Under Armour photo shoot for our next line called CHASING GREATNESS. I never do photo shoots where a make up artist sprays water on me and I pretend to workout while a photographer shoots it. I don’t have time for that bullshit. I have two rules when it comes to photo shoots in my gym: I’ll train hard like a MF and you’ll shoot it. And the most important rule, is stay the f*ck outta my way. Everyone wins. I’m more than happy to put in the work, as you guys are gonna dig this new line. Our chase is on. #ChasingGreatness #UnderArmour #ProjectRock 2018. (after this shoot I’m destroying PANCAKES!;)
We all feel that pressure and anxiety to perform daily. Work, relationships, school etc. I live it and I get it. Back when I was gettin’ my ass kicked from life and had $7 bucks in my pocket, I would always think, “Man if I could just make it, I wouldn’t have anymore stress and pressure”. You work your ass off to “make it” but then I realized you gotta be even more hungrier and work even harder once you get there. I understand what stress and pressure is. What it like to be pulled in 10,000 different directions in a day. When you think no one else understands the pressure you’re feeling. I get it. The key though is remembering that the noise of pressure and anxiety is always gonna be there, but you can’t let it control you. You gotta block out the stress and noise, listen to your gut and to keep moving forward. Always keep moving forward. And kindly pour me a shot of tequila...
It’s bananas level surreal. This #JUMANJI phenomenon around the world 🌎 is beyond my wildest dreams. My goal was to make a holiday movie that three generations of your family could enjoy - together. Love that you’re having FUN. Thank you so much for making us #1 ‘round the world and L’Chaim! 🍻 #JUMANJI 🌎
The limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ son of a gun is back. Great to kick off production for our new season of HBO’s BALLERS. Lots of work to put in, but we got a fun season lined up for ya, and as always, thank you so much for rockin’ with us for years and making our show, HBO’s #1 highest rated half hour on their roster. #Ballers #NewSeason #LosAngeles #Woo
Beijing 🇨🇳 Our big Jumanji CHINA premiere. It’s nice to be considered an industry leader, but if I’m going to continue to grow my business and our Seven Bucks enterprise on a global scale, then the way that works best for me is meeting face to face, shaking hands and looking people in the eyes. It’s just how I am. We live in a rapidly growing digital age where social media posts are fun and effective to a point, but the real work and success always gets done when you do it face to face. Thank you CHINA press and fans for your time. And thank you for the never ending adrenaline rush. 😉 #JUMANJI #WorldPressTour #Beijing
After 14hrs of flying, we landed in Beijing. Team wants to sleep, but I always have other plans. Let’s get the blood flowing. The one thing we can always control in this unpredictable life, is our effort. Effort creates action, action creates momentum, momentum creates success. And when in doubt just grab the heaviest shit possible. 😉 That’s a wrap on the am training. Now we can go to work. #BeijingBeast #BloodSweatRespect #JUMANJI #WorldTour #CHINA 🇨🇳
Jan 1st. 10pm. En route to Beijing. Not every US film has the privilege of being released in China. For me, it’s always an honor. And for everyone out there who’s chasing your own form of success. I support you and got your back. And remember, the work never stops.. you always gotta keep drivin’ forward. #BeijingBound #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #JumanjiChina 🇨🇳
New shoe alert 🚨 Puttin’ in the late night work at the lab aka West Coast Iron Paradise. Took these new #ProjectRock Under Armour ROCK 1 prototypes thru their first brutal leg workout. They did well. My goal is to make these our best training shoe yet. By the time they’re ready for you, they’ll be battle scarred properly and engineered to achieve greatness. Now I go to work and put em thru the tests. #ProjectRock #UnderArmour #ROCK1s Available MEMORIAL DAY 2018
Been a very grateful and lucky guy over the years to have accomplished a few things here and there. This ceremony for my Hollywood Star on the Walk of Fame was one of the greatest days of my life. I will always believe in the power of putting in the hard work with your own two hands. Everyone in my life, celebrates this Star with me. I’m here because of you - especially the fans. Watch the video below.
Huge news, Jumanji has captured the #1 spot in countries all over the world. As always, my goal is for you to have the best time and most fun at the movies so this news is a direct reflection of just that. Awesome feeling. It’s why I happily put in the work. Merry Christmas, have FUN with the movie and THANK YOU. Merry Christmas! #Jumanji #1 🌎🎅🏾
Amazing Jumanji reports coming in ‘round the world 🌎 that you guys are having the best time watching the movie. Get out and go have FUN.. you and your families deserve it. And I deserve my “me time” in my pick up truck going to workout, so thank ya, love ya, enjoy the movie, I’m out. 🤟🏾
You work hard and hopefully you get lucky enough to make a difference or two in kid’s lives. I’m laughing at myself here because when Maria says, “this is the best day of my life, thank you so much” I can tell I’m trying to avoid looking at her in that moment because I would’ve lost it. Damn Dwanta Claus hat makes me emo. 🎅🏾🤦🏾♂️😭 In a manly way of course. Thank you to EVERYONE who had a hand in helping me create such an unforgettable day for these kids and their families. Stuff like this will always be the best part of fame. By far. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Murat, Emily and Maria and your families ~ DJ #MakeAWishDay #OnSet #Skyscraper Link to watch FULL VID below.
Some pretty good results are in. Early #JUMANJI screenings have been outstandingly positive and successful. Thank you so much for having as much fun watching the movie as we did making it. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and enjoy the movie. Welcome to our jungle baby.. #JUMANJI THIS WEDNESDAY!
Many call it the “the greatest Bromance of all time” which I respectfully don’t agree with because that title goes to Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder or Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis. I call it “Just two dudes doing manly shit” all over the globe. But Kevin Hart calls it “Two dark cowboys on a mountain called Brokeback”.. which I’m not sure what he’s even referencing but I do know he’s an asshole. Always the best of times with my brother Kev. 🤙🏾 That’s a wrap! #GlobalPressTour #JUMANJI
Symbolic and full circle. 18yrs ago when I first broke into Hollywood, I knew nothing about acting or the business of Hollywood. Nothing. The only thing I knew and was 100% committed to was surrounding myself with good hard working people and the hard work I was willing to put in with my own two hands. I wanted to win, but I was willing to fail, because I knew that my effort was the only thing I could always control. And if I got my ass kicked and failed but gave great effort, I’d always come out the other side a better man. Here we are today, 18yrs later... these same two hands (with more callouses) touching this symbolic cement. My heart is full of GRATITUDE for my family, loved ones and everyone on my team who touches this with me. I’m a very grateful man. And we’re just getting started... #HollywoodWalkOfFame #StarCeremony #TwoHandsPhilosophy ✋🏾🤚🏾
The Producers. Very proud of my hard working and brilliant partners. Our Seven Bucks Productions Co-Founder Dany Garcia and our Seven Bucks President aka the only man in Hollywood who makes me look small Hiram Garcia. As we approach our company’s 5th year in the game, we’ve built our production, digital and advertising arms out solidly into one of the fastest growing and most sought after company’s in the business. We stay hungry, humble, learnin’, earnin’ and always being the hardest workers in the room. #GameChangers #SevenBucks #JUMANJI
Important to keep in mind that my character is a nerdy, terrified 16yr old teenager trapped in this superhero video game adult body. That’s why I’m trying not to cry. Context is important here people 😂😭. #JUMANJI Welcome to our jungle baby... THIS WEDNESDAY
When Jack Black and Nick Jonas told me they wrote and shot an original song and music video for Jumanji, I thought, "this is going to be some Grammy-level shit." Turns out it's a different kind of💩 .. but I kinda liked it. 🤙🏾
Our #ProjectRock ROCK DELTA training shoes became Under Armour's hottest selling shoe of 2017. Thank you! Onward. Very pleased with our creative meeting kicking off 2018’s shoe and apparel goals with our hungry Under Armour partners. We’ll always strive to make sure my shoe has the best technology, but’ll never look polished with fancy bells and whistles. My competitors can do that. I prefer grit, no nonsense, no bullshit, get the job done shoe that’ll be the best training shoe you’ll ever drop sweat in. Thank you Under Armour, The Garcia Companies Seven Bucks Productions, #WME for making the time for this meeting while I’m in the middle of my busy press tour for #JUMANJI. Learning a lot. Onward, upward. #ProjectRock #UnderArmour #ShoeGame #Growth
Why arrive to the most frenzied and electric Hollywood premiere of 2017 in a fancy, no fun limo when you can arrive in true style. An old beat to shit #JumanjiLandRover right down Hollywood Blvd while Guns N' Roses WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE is blaring thru the speakers. Perfect. I’ll drive. #WorldPremiere #Hollywood #JUMANJI
Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement - IT’S A GIRL! 🌺 Lauren Hashian Official and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby. Plus, Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis. And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana. All girls. Only dude. I wouldn’t have it any other way. #ItsAGirl #GratefulMan #TequilaTime 🌺🙏🏾🥃
