The Rock Asks Paris Museum To Fix His Wax Figure’s Skin Tone
Many people online pointed out the figure had a much lighter skin tone than Johnson's actual skin.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has reached out to the Grévin Museum in Paris, France, so that it can adjust the skin tone of his wax figure.
The museum revealed its wax figure of Johnson on October 16. Many people online pointed out the figure had a much lighter skin tone than Johnson's actual skin.
‘For the record, I’m going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grevin Museum, in Paris France 🇫🇷 so we can work at 'updating' my wax figure here with some important details and improvements- starting with my skin color,’ Johnson said in an October 22 Instagram post. 'And next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop in and have a drink with myself.’
On its website, the museum said that the artist behind the figure, Stéphane Barret, had to rely on photos and videos to create it. In a statement to Deadline, the museum said, 'Dwayne Johnson is right and we noticed it and will obviously remedy it as quickly as possible and send him new photos once completed.'
