EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Guzman's Jet-Ski Getaway Goes Awry
Ryan Guzman, the star of Step Up Revolution, found himself in unfamiliar waters, literally, during filming when his co-star, Kathryn McCormick, decided to take the cast out on what was supposed to be a fun day off from shooting.
"She [McCormick] decided we had an off day, I only had three off days during the whole time with shooting this movie in three months, but she decides to take me, tWitch, Misha Gabriel and herself out to go jet skiing," Guzman told Uinterview exclusively. On their trip, they eventually reached a spot where they could go swimming, but soon a prank by Guzman went awry.
"Then I’m looking at tWitch and I’m joking around with him and I’m like, 'Oh my god, my leg just got bit!' So I scare him and after I just made that joke, tWitch’s face goes pale and the tour guide yells, 'Get out of the water! Get out of the water!' I thought he was playing a joke again, but then I look around me, there’s probably a hundred jellyfish around me and I had to swim back to my jet-ski, which is, I don’t know, thirty feet away from me by that time. That was probably one of the most painful swims I’ve had in a while. So, this whole time Kathryn was trying to have a good time with us and she ends up scarring me for my life."
It's a good thing Guzman, a former MMA fighter, made it out in one piece, as he was able to carry the latest installment of the Step Up franchise to another smash box office pull. Step Up Revolution made over $140 million worldwide and launched the burgeoning acting career of Guzman in the process.
