He’s the world’s highest paid actor, a former professional wrestler and football player, a father of two, and one of the most motivating people to follow on Instagram. As an actor he’s played a range of characters, from Hercules to the Tooth Fairy, and has been sexy and likeable as all of them.
Yes indeedy, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a nice fella. He’s also sharp as a tack. And sexy. Dead sexy. According to People, he’s the sexiest man alive this year, in fact.
This modern definition of sexy is one we can really get behind. Being easy on the eyes alone just doesn’t cut it anymore. Johnson has that hearty, wholesome affability that you build when people feel like they know the real you.
“I think with a lot of my fans, I’ve gotten to a very, very cool place where there’s a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen,” he tells People.
Maybe, just maybe he got a teensy bit of that likability from his papa, old-school WWF (which became today’s WWE) star Rocky Johnson, who was born in Nova Scotia before moving to Toronto at the age of 16 to train as a wrestler. We like to think the Canadian connection has
everything something to do with his awesomeness. But of course there’s more to it than that.
There’s the fact that he’s a super sweet family man:
Its Labor Day. One of my favorite holidays as we celebrate the blue collar American worker and their contributions to our country thru labor and sweat. In the spirit of Labor Day, I had an amazing philosophical conversation w/ my baby girl about the value of hard work and how respect is given when it’s earned. I told her, “Baby girl when you grow up, you get out there and dent the universe thru hard work and sweat. And always make sure you do it in a positive way with class, dignity and respect”. She responded by poo’ing on me in this moment as she plays her favorite game, “Drum time on daddy’s big head”. It was a good talk.💯 #HappyLaborDay #TheJohnsons #GoodTalksWithDaddy
Who’s ready to adopt? DM @laurenhashianofficial and we’ll get back to you. Theae are the two gorgeous fur babies we rescued from the streets last week. I nicknamed them after two of my fav gorgeous ladies, @jlo and @Beyonce;). A mama and her baby girl. We had them spayed and all blood work and shots taken care of. Now they’re ready for an amazing family to take them in. Hundreds of families have already requested to take them home so please keep the requests coming! Again, DM @laurenhashianofficial and leave your information and we’ll be getting back to you. Universe works in mysterious ways and for some reason we were meant to find these two lovelies roaming the streets and terribly malnourished. Now they’re famous and licking the sweat off my face😂🙌🏾. #AdoptionTime #JLoAndBeyonce #Hawaii
There’s that killer smile:
Heard a cool story today about a 12yr old girl named Alexandria Pelaez. Kim (pictured here) is her proud mom and my flight attendant who had to put up with all my diva requests like warming up my chicken breasts. She told me that her daughter, Alexandria looks up to me because being healthy and fitness is important to her – even at 12yrs old. I told Kim how awesome that is considering the many other things kids her age could be into. She raised a good kid and felt grateful that I was someone worthy of her daughter looking up to. I thought “Hell everyone looks up to me since I’m 6’4”. Dumb joke 😂 I know the joy of a father’s love for his baby girls (I’m blessed with two) and the point of this post was just to send a shout out to a cool kid named Alexandria who’s not only my fan (clearly she has great tastes😂) but who also has already adopted the best philosophy I feel kids should have.. there’s no substitute for hard work. Alright gang thanks for stopping by and reading this long ass caption. Let’s get back to work. Or back to scrolling your IG feed. Or eating cake or whatever.. 😉👊🏾💯
And, of course, those muscles… Talk about work ethic:
