Emily Blunt has opened up working with Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming film "Jungle Cruise". The actress talked about how she takes career advice from him and shared that she really appreciates that the Hollywood star comes from struggle.

Blunt in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, said: "When you get to know him as being much gentler, much more shy than people realize, you really realize that 'The Rock' is the performance of a lifetime. It is so the antithesis of who he is. And so I'm going to push him to play, to take big swings with characters.

She added: "Because it's really transformative if you know him as I do."

The 38-year-old actress also says she has relied on him for counsel as she navigates the next stage of her career.

"I really appreciate that DJ comes from struggle," Blunt added.
