Dwayne Johnson has requested that "improvements" be made to his new wax figure.

The Rock's latest wax figure was unveiled last week at the Grévin Museum in Paris - however, the former WWE star shared on Instagram on Saturday that he was not entirely pleased with it.

"I knew my boy had this Rock wax statue in his roasting crosshairs," the 51-year-old wrestler and actor captioned a reposted video of comedian James Andre Jefferson Jr. making fun of the waxwork. "Legit belly laughed at this."

"For the record, I'm going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grévin Museum, in Paris France so we can work at 'updating' my wax figure here with some important details and improvements - starting with my skin color," the Black Adam star continued.

Dwayne concluded the post, "And next time I'm in Paris, I'll stop in and have a drink with myself."

Soon after the figure was unveiled, fans took to social media to criticise the museum for making the Moana star's skin too pale, among other mistakes.

"How they whitewash The Rock into Mr. Clean," one fan said of the wax figure, while another wrote, "They turned The Rock into Jason Statham."

Last year four wax figures of the actor were installed in various Madame Tussauds wax museums around the United States.
