Dave Bautista took to social media to show off his transformation to for his latest film, but getting a picture led to some hilarious results!

Since transitioning from the world of pro wrestling to the bright lights of Hollywood, Dave Bautista has found great success. Known as Batista in WWE, the wrestler-turned-actor has starred in a number of films including Blade Runner 2049, Army of the Dead, and perhaps most notably stars as Drax in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Bautista is currently working on filming Knock at the Cabin, an M. Night Shyamalan feature that began production on April 19th. The former WWE Champion took to social media to show off his body transformation to what he called “fatty status” for the film, but noted that taking a picture of himself proved more difficult than he first imagined.

The star points out that not only is part of his anatomy far too visible, but also that his bathroom mirror is dirtier than he thought.

“So I was trying to take a solid pic of myself to document my transition to fatty status. Which will soon come to an end thank god! Upon inspection of this pic I noticed a few issues. 1: Let’s start with the obvious. You can see my balls. 2:Apparently I brush my teeth in a way that toothpaste flys all over the bathroom. I’ll have to work on that. 3:I have officially turned into the grouchy emoji..
Anyway I hope everyone out there isn’t taking themselves too seriously. Life’s too short. Happy Sunday!! #DreamChaser #knockatthecabin”

While little is known about the plot of the film, Knock at the Cabin also stars Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge.

Dave Bautista is also featured in the latest trailer for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder in which he’ll reprise his role as Drax the Destroyer.

The star left WWE in 2010, beginning his acting career before briefly returning in 2014. The former World Champion made one more comeback in 2019 to face old rival Triple H at WrestleMania 35 in what was his farewell match.

After retiring from in-ring competition, Batista had been due to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2020. He later pulled out of the delayed ceremony which was held in 2021.
