John Cena is fully embracing his feminine side in his latest R-rated comedy role, giving audiences a look they’ve never seen before from the former WWE Superstar.
Wearing thigh-high stockings and a short plaid mini skirt, the 45-year-old actor showcased his incredibly muscular legs on Thursday, filming on the Melbourne, Australia set of his new project, titled Ricky Stanicky.
The acting hunk – who often used the catchphrase ‘you can’t see me’ – was in clear view playing the titular role in the film, helmed by Peter Farrelly – director of Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, and Me, Myself & Irene.
He completed his look with a pair of lace-up heeled booties, as he stepped into his trailer on set.
The quirky premise of the movie centers around Cena’s character Ricky Stanicky, who is actually the name of an imaginary friend, invented and perpetuated by three friends over several years so that they have someone to blame for their misbehavior.
However, when their partners become suspicious, they’re forced to hire a washed-up actor to bring Stanicky to life – seemingly in the shape of John Cena in drag.

Earlier in the week, the star had powder white make-up all over his chiseled face along with dark black highly-arched eyebrows painted on along with red lipstick.
He also donned baggy vest, button down-striped shirt, and shorts combination which concealed his very muscular figure.
He was not alone as he walked alongside his stunning wife Shay Shariatzadeh on the outing.
The 33-year-old engineer looked casual cool in a clinging auburn long-sleeved top with blue jeans.
She showed off her massive engagement ring and pricy watch while holding a cup of coffee.

The couple initially met in early 2019 and were first spotted having a romantic dinner date in her native Vancouver in March 2019, while John was in Canada to film Playing With Fire.
In a whirlwind romance, the pair tied the knot in a private ceremony in Tampa, Florida, in 2020.
Not seen on set was Cena’s co-star Zac Efron who he is starring alongside in the Peter Farrelly directed film.
Fans can certainly expect some gross out humor from director Peter Farrelly, known for his work with brother Bobby, as the Farrelly brothers.

Though he had a foray into more serious work with the Oscar-winning Green Book in 2018, Peter is better known for comedies such as Shallow Hal and The Heartbreak Kid.
Many of his comedy films feature eye-watering gags, like Gwyneth Paltrow in a ‘fat suit’ and Cameron Diaz styling her hair with something that definitely wasn’t hair gel.
The synopsis of the film according to Variety is: ‘Ricky Stanicky is the name of an imaginary character invented and perpetuated by three friends over several years so that they have someone to blame for their misbehavior.
‘When their partners become suspicious, they’re forced to hire a washed-up actor to bring Stanicky to life. The move has dire, but hilarious consequences’
Amazon Prime Video has the worldwide rights to the project which will also star William H. Macy, Anja Savcic, Jermaine Fowler, Andrew Santino, and Lex Scott Davis.
