Mana. Gratitude. Tequila. And not necessarily in that order..

Everyday in my head (which can be a very dangerous place;), I strip everything I got away, so the only thing I got left are my two hands and the hard work I’m willing to put in with them. This daily mental process may not work for everyone, but it works for me. Keeps my back to wall. Keeps me hungry & grateful. In the end, it’ll always come down to our two hands. #back2thewall #mytwohands #needwaffles

When one of my fav films, THE STING meets my gluttonous CHEAT MEAL COOKIE TRAIN. A lil’ fun fact to share with you - when I first broke into Hollywood back in 2002 I was filming THE SCORPION KING on the backlot soundstage of Universal Studios. My producer @kevin.misher came to me and said, “someone very special wants to come by set and personally welcome you to Hollywood” and in walks the legend himself, PAUL NEWMAN. He was so gracious, cool and kind with his words about what my career could potentially be in Hollywood. Me, on the other hand was a stumbling idiot and kept my answers so short because I was in such awe and respect of this beautiful man. I’m sure Paul thought “this kid’s got potential but Jesus Christ he needs to work on his people skills” 🤦🏽‍♂️ Now years later I’m here watching two of my fav actors in one of my fav movies, while I stuff my greedy fat face with some of the best and biggest cookies I’ve ever had - mahalo Chef Paige. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends. #TheSting👃🏾 #NewmanRedford #CheatMealCookieTrain #ShitPeopleSkills

Here’s our UK 🇬🇧 poster for our little independent film we made @fightingwmyfam. One fateful night back in 2012, I was in my hotel room in London and couldn’t sleep so I flicked on the tele to a local British station and watched a fascinating documentary about a crazy, loving and passionate pro wrestling family from Norwich and their young daughter’s dream to make it to the @WWE. Their crazy family, reminded me of my own crazy wrestling family and I felt audiences would really enjoy this story made into a movie. Happy to bring her family’s story to the big screen and very cool to have played a very very small part in my friend @realpaigewwe‘s journey to stardom. Big thanks SUNDANCE FILM FEST for seeing the potential in our little gem. We’ll see ya there for our world premiere. #FightingWithMyFamily @sevenbucksprod @kevin.misher @stephenmerchant @florencepugh @WWE @MGM

Ridin’ that sooosh train 🖤🍣🚂🌴🌊 in Hawaii. Luv crushin’ sushi all around the world on my cheat days, but today might be my favorite of all time. Busted my ass for an extremely challenging, yet productive work week and now I get to sit at home with this absolutely absurd ocean view from my office. Now all you see is this beautiful image for the ‘gram, but here’s what’s happening in real life as I post this/ I hear my 9month old baby girl crying for daddy (at least that’s what my ego thinks), my Mac and phone are both pinging non-stop with texts and email alerts kickin’ off my work week, my legs are on fire because I just trained legs so hard it qualifies me as a f*cking maniac and I just heard my 3yr old daughter say to our nanny, “I think Daddy looks like Shrek” and it all just made me realize THIS is the greatest cheat meal of all time. Wait til I break out the cookies tonight and mahalo to North Side Grill in Hanalei for the amazing soosh and discreet ❤️🤙🏾 Enjoy your cheat meals my friends. #sooshtrain #paletteorgasm #hawaii

An exclusive lil’ taste of biggest showdown the summer has ever seen. The Outlaw Lawman, HOBBS. The International Spy, SHAW. The Baddest Bad Guy the Fast & Furious franchise has ever had, BRIXTON. We’re either gonna get along or we get it on. Fuuuck gettin’ along, gettin’ it on is way more fun. On a biz note, this film has been a fun one to produce and our 🌎 audience is gonna have an absolute blast this summer. #FastAndFuriousPresents #HobbsAndShaw @sevenbucksprod @hhgarcia41 📸

Settin’ the record straight. The interview never happened. Never said those words. 100% false. If I ever had an issue with someone, a group, community or a generation — I’d seek them out, create dialogue and do my best to understand them. Criticizing ain’t my style. I don’t cast stones and we all get to be who we are. #millies #plurals #boomers #TequilaGeneration 🤙🏾🥃
