There appears to be a special relationship between Dua Lipa and John Cena after the filming of “Argylle.”
The singer considers Cena her “emotional support actor,” while Cena, on the other hand, expressed enjoyment in bonding with Lipa during the film’s world premiere.
In the movie “Barbie,” Dua Lipa portrayed the role of a mermaid-inspired Barbie doll, while Cena portrayed a merman.
Cena was impressed with the film’s concept.
As a matter of fact, he praised the work of director Greta Gerwig and lead actress Margot Robbie, despite their omission from the Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Actress
According to Cena, “My takeaway from that comment, which I’m very grateful for, is we shot this before Barbie, so this was her first chance to be on-screen. She was vulnerable enough to admit she was nervous.”
“Meanwhile, I’m in front of Dua Lipa, Matthew Vaughn, and Henry Cavill, and I’m going, ‘You’re not alone! I’m nervous as well.’ So we began to share that.
“We’re both touring live performers, so we had some conversations about that and life on the road, and it just kind of spawned from there.”
“Barbie” bagged eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, recognizing Gerwig’s collaboration with Noah Baumbach. Margot Robbie also earned a nomination for Best Picture as one of the film’s producers.
“I think it’s gonna be a movie that all audiences enjoy. I think it’s gonna be a movie that evokes conversation. And I think it’s going to be beautifully visually appealing,” Cena added.
“And the ideas behind it, I think the audience will walk away with, like, a mixed bag of opinions, which I think is the greatest form of entertainment.”
