It might seem hard to believe, but Dwayne Johnson fancies himself a nerd. And right now the G.I. Joe: Retaliation star is nerding out over the Snapseed app on his smartphone.
“I am 6’4”, 250 pounds of turbo nerd and tech geek,” says Johnson. “And my latest app is Snapseed. I love editing pictures and doing stuff like that on it. It’s really cool.”
Johnson explains that the app is not about “blowing up your face to make them funnier or anything like that.”
“It’s a very high-quality app that allows you to jump in there and add to the composition (of a picture) if you want or make it black and white,” he says. “There are a lot of cool things you can do.”
Johnson, who appears as a muscle-bound knucklehead kidnapper in Pain & Gain on April 26, used Snapseed to tweak the weightlifting photo above.
He also used it in the most recent picture he took with a couple of basketball giants.
“I just added a picture of myself, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal,” says Johnson. “I’m being towered over by these guys. I wanted to really bring out the colors in the picture.”
“Again,” he adds, “it’s all about being a turbo nerd.”
