Former pro wrestler The Rock says playing the "bad ass" Elliot, a gay bodyguard and aspiring star, in the action-comedy Be Cool, was a chance to exercise his acting chops – alongside an A-list cast including John Travolta and Uma Thurman. The Rock (born Dwayne Johnson), 32, recently chatted about playing gay, fawning over Travolta, and singing loud and proud.

The Rock is now The Chief. The wrestler turned actor recently visited his mother's native Samoa, where His Highness Malietoa Tanumafili II crowned Dwayne Johnson a high chief. "It was a life-changing moment for me," says the 32-year-old, who spent time visiting the elderly and schoolchildren there. Johnson, who has donated some $50,000 to Samoan causes, recently talked with PEOPLE about his trip, title and really big tattoos.
