While in attendance at his latest project’s premiere, Playing with Fire, John Cena also debuted his new romance with Shay Shariatzadeh on the red carpet! The two looked really happy as they smiled and posed for the flashing cameras together!
It was their first time at a public event in each other’s company, showing up at AMC Lincoln Square Theater in NYC where the movie’s premiere took place.
Cena took this opportunity to gush over his lady, telling ET on the red carpet that: ‘It’s a wonderful day for a movie premiere and I got a beautiful date.’
He went on to share some details about how they met, saying that it happened as he was shooting his new film.
So it was only fitting to also bring her to the premiere, right?
‘What’s truly special about this one is that, no matter what projects I am involved in the future, this [Playing with Fire] will always have a very special meaning because I got to film a special project and also meet someone special. It’s gonna to be a wonderful night [with her by my side].’
This is all Cena wanted to reveal about their romance for the time being!
The lovebirds were caught in each other’s company for the first time back in March and they were holding hands while walking around in Vancouver, where the movie was being shot!
Cena also mentioned his other movie Fast and Furious 9, discussing the exciting news that Cardi B has also joined the cast!
‘She was kind of a surprise. I was also a surprise, but I think that is what is great about the franchise, the ability to always keep it entertaining for the audiences…[Their audience] spans the globe and it is a multi-cultural franchise which always prides itself on its diversity.’
He went on to also say that while all their roles are secret for now so he has no idea what the female emcee will do in the movie, she is definitely a nice addition!
