Dwayne Johnson says he has to listen to his body

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has admitted he has to train harder to keep in shape now he is getting older.

The 38-year-old wrestler-turned-actor stars in The Tooth fairy with Julie Andrews but revealed he still works hard to keep his muscles in tip-top condition.

Dwayne said: "I think what happens is as you get older you start to just pay attention more to your body."

The Mummy Returns star confessed he used to find working out a doddle when he was younger, but now he has to take it a lot more seriously.

He said: "I think I train smarter now, where before when I was younger I would just throw around all kinds of weight and see how heavy we could go. A lot of it is based on ego when you come from the world of athletics and sports, but as you get older you just start to really listen to your body.

"And whether you are involved in athletics or not, I think it's important for all of us to listen to our body. The body is an incredible machine and it will talk to you."
