Turns out, it's because he was really bad at acting.
"I had done a small role in a film," say Bautista, "as a favor to a friend. I realized two things: one, how much I loved it, and two, the other thing is just how bad I was at it. Like, I was really just horrible, which I think made it challenging. I'm one of those guys that, when something's challenging to me, it makes me want to pursue it and be better at it, even if it means leaving behind a multi-millon dollar career in wrestling just to pursue it."
Bautista plays Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, now playing in theaters.0comments
