The former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star plays a heavily-tattooed drug dealer in new movie Sisters, starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

However, despite his tough-guy appearance, he tells editors at New York Post gossip column Page Six that his mother would have a few words to say if he ever got etched with ink.

"In the movie (Sisters) I have facial tattoos, but in real life I would never do that," he says. "I do not have any tattoos on my body... My mom would kill me if I was to do anything like that."

John has branched out into acting after retiring from the ring, and he has also appeared in Amy's Trainwreck earlier this year (15). The film was this week (ends13Dec15) nominated for two Golden Globes, including a best actress nod for Amy, the film's writer and star.

Sisters is due for release in the U.S. on 18 December (15).
