Ready for a naked truth?
The "Baywatch" movie is going to be full of tanned, toned, and well-oiled skin. Producer and star Dwayne Johnson owned it, openly admitting in a recent interview with the U.K.'s Sun that they "worked hard to make sure the flesh quota was high." Since they've got it, they're apparently going to flaunt it.
"There's more gratuitous boobs, bums, abs, whatever per minute than you can imagine," he said.
The pro wrestler-turned-actor has always been known for his muscled physique, but his abs aren't the only impressive ones among the film's cast. In fact, he even admitted that co-star Zac Efron gave him a run for his money.
"The ladies were too impressed for my liking with Zac's body when he was filming," he told The Sun.
Johnson conceded that Efron worked hard, which helped them "keep the airbrushing budget low." And he must not have been the only one. The previews we've seen to this point have hinted at all the skin Johnson promised, with super-toned bodies everywhere.
"Plot was important, don't get me wrong, but so was sorting out our slow-motion runs," Johnson said.
Ah, the famed slow-motion runs. They were a staple of the original "Baywatch" TV series, and now they are coming back with a vengeance. What the movie will do differently, though, is get "far dirtier than the show ever was," according to Johnson. He went so far as to say the action-comedy will make its predecessor look "like children's TV."
"Baywatch," in all its gratuitous, dirty glory, hits theaters on May 26.
