John Cena Reveals He Almost Threw Up After A 31-Take Scene On The Set Of The Suicide Squad

John Cena’s Hollywood career has taken him in all sorts of directions, but one of his next anticipated roles is The Peacemaker in James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad.”

Cena joins a large ensemble cast which features the like of Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi, Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson, and former Walking Dead star Michael Rooker. It’s a large cast that Cena could easily be lost in, but the Leader of the Cenation told us about a scene to look out for that almost left him sick.

Cena spoke as part of a panel for the movie at CCXP 2020, talking about how the scene required him to eat an empanada. Cena ate the whole thing during the shooting, hoping to finish it in one take. However, things didn’t go as planned and Cena ended up taking 31 takes.

31 takes means 31 empanadas, and 31 empanadas almost left John Cena ready to vomit.

“There was a day where we shot on a rooftop where we’re all eating. I had to eat an empanada and I took it upon myself to try to eat the entire empanada in a seamless take, thinking that it’s gonna look great, but it was also a complicated shot for James. Thirty-one empanadas later, Jesus, we got it right.”

Gunn was asked if Cena actually wound up vomiting, but Cena replied and added that if he had eaten one more empanada, he would have.

“I think 32 would have been the ‘heave-ho,’ but I was able to penguin waddle out of there and just relax and unbutton. But then people are going to see the movie and nobody’s going to care, so please—remember the empanadas!”

When you see this movie August 6, 2021, remember that Cena ate 31 empanadas to entertain you. You can watch the trailer below.
