You Won't Believe What Type Of Hair Was Used For Dwayne Johnson'
Dwayne Johnson was shocked when he found out what kind of hair was used to make his "Hercules" beard.

The actor was forced to spend three hours in the make-up chair every day to portray the Greek demigod, and the process got him thinking about what exactly was being put on his face.

He explained on "Live With Kelly & Michael," "The beard hair... had to be put on, strips cut, inch high, quarter inch wide, piece by piece. I asked my Italian designer, I said, 'Matteo, what is this?' He goes, 'Oh, it's the hair from a yak'. It's very expensive, very fine hair... He was putting it on my face a...

Chris Hemsworth has problems most men would envy. For example, he put on so much muscle while he was preparing to play "Thor" that his costume didn't fit.

The Australian star told the Los Angeles Times in 2011: "I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger. And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

The "Thor" costume was altered to fit his new shape, and movie execs ordered Hemsworth to g...

'Snitch' An Action Film Missing The Action (Video)

February 22nd, 2013 4:02pm EST
'Snitch'
'Snitch' directed by Ric Roman Waugh is an action film with barely any 'action.'  At that's the least of its problems.

The main one: The lead - Sorry Mr. Rock aka Dwayne Johnson.  I know your films have made a lot of money at the box office, but you are truly one wooden actor.  You basically had one facial expression throughout the film and your monotonic delivery didn't help.

Johnson can get away with it in comedy, but definitely not in a dramatic piece which this film is.

He plays businessman John Matthews who owns a successful trucking company, Matthews is married, has a young child a...
