Dwayne Johnson have been to different fights, whether as a wrestler or as an actor. Judging on his physique, it is easy to say scaring or distracting him will be a failed mission. However, that was not the case during the shooting of his latest movie Hercules where he starred as the title character. For him, keeping your focus is like being a 'real hero' because of a massive distraction nearby. The distraction he is referring to is Irina Shayk, his co-star who plays as his lover Megara.

In an interview with German newspaper Bild, the 42-year old American actor was asked to constitute what a 'real hero' is.

"A real hero is someone who looks also great in a loincloth. And he needs to manage to be in focus on set every single day. Even if he acts beside a beautiful woman like Irina Shayk he can't get distracted," the Rock jokingly said.

While the presence of Shayk is a distraction for many guys, the Russian model says her beauty and hot body isn't something to keep. She said that she doesn't mind getting naked. The 28-year old former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model said that she's not shy to show off her body.

"I'm a woman who is very confident with the body, with my body. I feel like you can be naked on a different levels," she said.

"To be half-naked for a Greek mythology movie, it's a piece of art. You know, there's nothing vulgar in there."

As for her first movie, Irina, whose real life partner is football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, said that he enjoyed it even if she didn't take any acting classes.

'Most of the time when I do shoots, they try to make you really pretty. You have to look your best. I loved the set, being covered in mud and fake blood - it was different and fun!"
