Wayne Rooney has true Hollywood star quality: ‘Babel’ director

London: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has all the qualities to make it big in Hollywood, says director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

The Mexican moviemaker directed Rooney and Real Madrid poster-boy Cristiano Ronaldo in a recent TV commercial and insisted only one of them has true Hollywood star quality.

“Wayne is a natural. He’s from the streets and has a warrior appeal that could serve him well in movies,” the Daily Express quoted Inarritu as saying.

“Cristiano was very uncomfortable during filming and even had a panic attack at one point. I don’t see him making it as an actor,” he added.
