Action-man Dwayne Johnson amassed a large G.I. Joe action figure collection as a child by stealing them from toy stores.

The former wrestler, who is the star of the new G.I. Joe movie Retaliation, admits he was too poor to actually buy the miniatures, so he'd swipe them.

He tells Wenn, "We couldn't afford toys, but I had a massive collection of G.I. Joes and Star Wars action figures. I used to go to the stores and open the packages and then put the action figures in my pocket.

"I would walk out of these stores with pockets full of stolen action figures. I eventually got caught, twice, so I didn't learn my lesson the first time, but I did eventually get caught."
