1. His Style Always Hits The Mark
Never one to offend the fashion police, Johnson pulls out all the stops when he steps onto any red carpet. The “Baywatch” star is rarely photographed in an ill-fitting suit and always looks to push the envelope with his style while flashing one of his best accessory — his smile!
2. He’s Got The Best Bod In The Biz
The former wrestler’s physique is the envy of many but a body like his doesn’t come easy. Johnson recently revealed the extensive diet and exercise plan required to maintain 260 pounds of muscle and it had many gasping in disbelief.
Johnson keeps his physique big screen ready by eating over 5,000 calories a day — approximately 10 pounds of food — spread over a total seven meals.
3. His Open Heart And Caring Ways
Johnson isn’t shy about contributing to causes that are near and dear to his heart! When he isn’t shattering box office records, the Hollywood star keeps busy by giving back to his family, fans and organizations that truly need his help. In January 2014, Johnson surprised his longtime housekeeper with a brand new SUV.
4. His Golden Box-Office Touch
Whether it’s a “Fast & Furious” installment, an action-thriller or voicing a kid-friendly movie, nearly everything Johnson touches turns to gold. It’s no wonder Forbes named him the highest-earning actor for 2016, with his estimated earnings totalling $64.5 million this past year.
5. That Million Dollar Smile!
Johnson’s pearly whites are often overshadowed by his bulging biceps but there’s no denying that his smile has the power to light up any room.
6. His Love For His Mother
Dwayne Johnson’s deep love for his mother, Ata, is undeniable. The actor kept his fans updated on her health in 2014 after she and his cousin were involved in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. “Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them,” he told his fans over social media.
And let’s not forget the time he saved her life when he was only 15-years-old! Johnson pulled his mother to safety after she exited his family’s car in the middle of a fight with the actor’s father. “She walks right into the middle of I-65, and continues to walk down into oncoming traffic….My heart stopped,” Johnson recalled of his mother suicide attempt. “I grabbed her and wrestled her over to the side of the road…I don’t remember what I said to her. I remember she didn’t say a thing.”
7. He’s a Great Father
The “Baywatch” actor is a father to 17-year-old Simone Alexandra and baby girls, Jasmine, 3, and Tiana, 1. The actor vows to raise down-to-earth daughters and tries his best to shield them from Hollywood’s spotlight, but every now and then his beautiful daughters can’t help but overshadow their doting father.
8. His Non-Stop Devotion To His Fans
The Rock is never too busy to carve out some one-on-one time with his fans! Johnson took several breaks from filming “Baywatch” to meet with some off his youngest and sickest fans.
After meeting with 16-year-old cancer-striken Fernando in March, the actor took to Instagram to share his touching story. This is 16yr old Fernando. A junior at Coosa High School in Rome, GA. He was diagnosed with cancer in the 6th grade,” he wrote. “On Feb 24th, 2016 Fernando got word that cancer had spread to his left lung and this would be his final fight. One of his final wishes was to meet me. We did just that this past Saturday, on my set. In Atlanta, GA.”
He continued, “this kid's perspective on life knocked me off my feet. Smile on his face, funny as hell, sincere and calm. Easily one of the coolest kids I've ever met and a meeting I'll never forget.”
9. He Sure Can Sing
Johnson’s talents know no bounds! We can’t wait to hear his vocals chops in the upcoming Disney movie “Moana”, and thankfully he’s already given his fans a sneak peek at his soulful sounds.
Off-screen, Johnson croons his baby daughter Jasmine to sleep and posts video of the heartwarming moment to Instagram, sending us all swooning!
10. His Canadian Roots
He may have been born in Hayward, California but Johnson’s roots are Canadian grown. The “Sexiest Man Alive” is the offspring of Rocky Johnson, a retired professional wrestler born in Amherst, Nova Scotia who would later move to Toronto.
