With one runaway blockbuster in theaters — “Furious 7” — and another about to open — “San Andreas” — Dwayne Johnson is seeing a lot of action these days. Here he talks about his remarkable hero’s journey.

Dwayne Johnson, pro wrestler turned action star, wants to entertain his fans, first and foremost. “Whether I’m acting in movies or wrestling, for me, it’s the same work ethic,” he says. “People work very hard for their money and I want to give them a great show.”

When you’re talking to The Rock, aka Dwayne Johnson, you must beware the Corporate Elbow. It’s a signature move for the 43-year-old Johnson, a swift and murderous flex that flattens muscle-bound foes as if they had just jet-propelled into a very, very large brick, and he’s not afraid to use it. In 2015, the three-time World Wrestling Federation (WWF) Champion, is a bona fide movie star, whose films have grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide. He’s learned through the years – Hercules, cough-cough – that Hollywood has a Corporate Elbow of its own – a deadly chop-socky that can smackdown a superstar faster than you can say Van Damme. But Johnson, enjoying the stratospheric box office success of Furious 7, remains undaunted by the perils of stardom. If WWF taught Johnson anything, it’s how to please a crowd. Combining biceps and swagger, pratfalls and daredevilry, heroism and tomfoolery, Johnson’s onscreen persona is downright irresistible.

Years ago, when we first spoke and Johnson’s star was just beginning to rise, the superstar flashed a radiant smile, issued a hearty handshake and a spine-snapping backslap, then quipped, “Finally! You’re gonna smell what The Rock is cooking!” Johnson’s surrendered his wrestling moniker, but he greets one and all in virtually the same fashion today, his enthusiasm making every person he meets feel like they, too, are world famous. Later this month, Johnson reteams with Carla Gugino in San Andreas, trying to save their onscreen daughter from the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in Los Angeles. If any man can best an earthquake, it’s Dwayne Johnson.

From day one in Hollywood, it seemed studios warmed to you. Everyone loved The Rock. You were sort of like Lana Turner, but instead of being picked out at Schwab’s, you were discovered in the wrestling ring.

Lucky. I am lucky. Very blessed. I tell you what was great, I snuck in to see previews of The Scorpion King, which was my first leading role, and I had such a good time. It was really gratifying, and it showed me exactly why we do what we do in moviemaking. At the end of the day, you just want the audience to be thoroughly entertained. That’s what you shoot for.

Conversely, your wrestling fans were very kind about your migration to film work.

Whether I’m acting in movies or wrestling, for me, it’s the same work ethic. People work very hard for their money and I want to give them a great show. That’s it. Bottom line. They can boo or cheer for whoever they want, but they’re going to get a show. If audiences trust me at all, it’s probably because I take that very seriously.

A decade or so ago, you did a film called The Rundown. Arnold Schwarzenegger showed up in an uncredited cameo, almost as if to pass you the torch as this generation’s action hero. Does that make sense to you?


Very much so, though there is only one Arnold, for sure. It’s funny how things happen from having a little lunch sometimes, like his cameo in that movie. I asked him at the time if he had any advice for me. I still felt like I was just getting started, and I was always asking the veterans for good advice. Arnold told me, “Have fun.” Interestingly enough, I asked him years later why he gave me that advice, and he said, “Well, ‘cause you were going where I’d already been.” I thought that was really cool of him.

Does that mean you’ll run for public office one day, too?

No. No. No! Not at all. (Laughs) I was invited to speak at Republican Conventions years ago, but it was only for voter registration. That’s all it was. I did get a chance to sit in the box with the President and his mother. That was wild. But, no, no, no. Politics? That would not be me. Could never be me. Never.

Today, you’re one of the biggest stars in the world, and the The Fast and the Furious films just keep getting more enjoyable somehow.

I love the Fast movies, man. The character I play, Hobbs, he continues to be one of the most fun challenges and most rewarding characters that I’ve ever played. We continue to add these little layers to Hobbs. It’s so much fun keeping him bad-ass, but allowing him to show these tiny little bits of vulnerability every once in a while, then going back to the tough guy thing, being able to throw a wink or two at my longtime fans. It’s been the best.

If I’m not mistaken, Furious 7 audiences got one of those “winks” in your big fight scene with Jason Statham. You used the old “Rock Bottom” move, right?


Fans had always said, “You should inject your wrestling moves into the movies.” I didn’t want to blur the lines, so I never did. But in this case, it was appropriate somehow. We were working on choreographing the fight, Jason and me, and we knew where the fight had to end, and I just had this crazy idea: “Hey, Jason, what if at the end of the fight we punctuate it with this move, with the Rock Bottom. It’s never been seen before in cinema. Fans are going to go bananas over this thing.” You never know how that kind of thing is going to land with another actor. Sometimes ego kills a good idea, but that is not Jason Statham. He was, like, “Oh, yeah, man! Give it to me! Put me through the glass table and cut me up!” That’s how magic happens. I think we gave people what they wanted.



Miraculously, there were no reported injuries in a film so stuffed with breathtaking action and stunt work as Furious 7. But they do happen sometimes, right? I recall you telling me about how your sword snapped in half during the shooting of one of your first big studio films.


(Laughs) Yes! Scorpion King, and the sword just snapped, man. Accidents happen. Here’s the thing: anytime something happens on the set with me, if I accidentally hurt someone, I’ve gotta buy the guy something. I bought a stunt guy a watch once when my hand slipped and I really punched him. A Rolex. I was doing a fight scene years ago with the great Michael Clarke Duncan, and I accidentally laid one on him. He would’ve gotten a Rolex, but Michael just got right back up and first thing out of his mouth was, “Where’s my watch, bitch?” Now you don’t get a watch. You can just wear your little Timex and be happy about your day.

Are you looking ahead to the next installment in the Fast franchise?


Oh, definitely. I have no idea where we’re going. But somehow we always get there. We get to better than there. But I’ve been saying this for a while now, but in Fast 8 I’m calling Santa Claus for backup. That’s it. There’s no other way to go. Just me and Hobbs and Santa Claus. Maybe I’ll put Vin on Rudolph.


For as long as many of your fans can remember, you’ve been a gigantic movie star. It wasn’t always like that, though, was it?

Look, I’m a very, very blessed man. Very blessed. But I never had much growing up. Things were always a struggle. It wasn’t all that long ago that I was sleeping on a urine-strained mattress up in Calgary with seven bucks stuffed in my shoe. I’ll never forget that. I’ll always give back in every way that I can. I don’t take any of this for granted.

Is there a single event in your history that made you think you’d ever in a million years come to where you are today?

Growing up, when I was a kid, I always thought that one day I would like to act. I didn’t know how. I didn’t know how I was going to get there. I always thought, as well, that I’d like to entertain people. But I didn’t know how. The convenient route at that time, especially since I played football in school, was to go into wrestling. I never, ever anticipated this. Never. I never anticipated making a lot of money. I never anticipated being in big, fun, energetic movies. I just wanted to make more than $300 a week, which is what I made for a long time. I wanted to do better than that. I knew that much. I also knew that whatever I did, I’d always swing for the fences, that I would always try to outwork my contemporaries, to best them with my energy and motivation.

Everyone in the world knows what an action movie is. What is it you bring to the party that the other guys don’t or can’t?

I don’t know if I bring to it things the other guys couldn’t. But number one, I always try to do something special. I want to be sure that my characters are flawed, in jeopardy, reluctant to fight, not wanting to be the cool cat, but are almost forced into action. At the end of the day, the most important thing is to not take yourself too seriously onscreen. You’ve got to be willing to poke a little fun at yourself, to let that monkey hump you, like in Rundown. Which was very fun by the way. You don’t always have to be big, bad, and dangerous.

Most likely the biggest movie of the Summer, San Andreas opens May 29th.

As we all know about the devastation that happened in Nepal, not once but twice. Having disaster strike in a moments notice can leave devastation and little to no means of survival. The times can be hard and help can be scarce. Dwayne Johnson sat down with People Magazine to reflect on what happened in Nepal.

Here is the full article:

The timing couldn’t be eerier for the release of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s San Andreas.

The premiere of the earthquake disaster flick – which details the destruction of San Francisco – comes just a month after the real-life devastation stemming from the 7.8-magnitude quake that rocked Nepal on April 25.

During a press conference for the film in Los Angeles on Saturday, Johnson spoke of the impact the Nepalese disaster had on the cast and crew of San Andreas.

“I think that we made the movie knowing and understanding the content of it and what we were making,” Johnson acknowledged. “The world we live in and the life we have today, these things happen. It?s so unfortunate, incredibly unfortunate. Prayers and thoughts continue to go out to everybody in Nepal and everybody who was affected by that.”

He added, “The truth is, you go into a project like this with everything you’ve got, your heart and your soul, and you just want to make a good movie.”

If there’s a silver lining to be found in disaster, Johnson says it would be “the ideology of family and strength coming together through a tragedy,” which he asserts is a strong theme throughout the movie.

The Furious 7 star also says he has some very personal experience enduring the violence of Mother Nature.

“I?ve been through natural disasters,” Johnson says, explaining that he was living in Miami when the category-five Hurricane Andrew hit in 1992.

“There were members of my family who thought they were going to die,” he says. “Everybody was in the bathtub. It was a tough, tough thing. So I think the idea of coming together, like we’re showcasing in our story, resonates with people.”

Johnson spent time training with first responders in L.A. and Australia to prepare for the role, an experience he tells PEOPLE allowed him to fully appreciate “just how special and unique they are, and it’s why so few are able to do it.”

The time he spent with the real-life heroes was a “life-changing experience.”

Yesterday, Warner Brothers  conference for San Andreas, the film where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play a heroic first responder making amends with his family.

Of course, Johnson is known for several of his blockbuster action films – one of those being the Fast & Furious franchise. Having appeared in the previous three installments but playing a much smaller part in the latest, fans of the adrenaline pumping franchise are wondering if Johnson’s Luke Hobbs character will be returning for the eighth installment, which Vin Diesel recently confirmed at CinemaCon.

During the conference, Johnson addressed the possibility of a Hobbs spinoff for Fast & Furious. “We all are interested in it,” Johnson said. “I just had a big conversation with the studio, so we’ll see. I still think for me personally, we create a little bit of space from seven and gauge what the audience will want and go from there. That’s my take on it. Now a lot of other people have their own say.”

After the San Andreas press conference, Johnson was asked directly by NerdReport whether he’ll be returning. “Of course,” Johnson said, adding, “Can’t go on without Hobbs.”

There you have it. Not only will The Rock return for the eighth edition of Fast & Furious, but there’s also the possibility his Hobbs character becomes a franchise itself. Is Hobbs the franchise character Johnson has been waiting for? To date, he has never played the same character more than three times, but Luke Hobbs may be his best known role yet.

Do you want to see a Hobbs spinoff movie in the Fast & Furious universe? After all, he is the cavalry.

Earlier this week, we all saw the Instagram post where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, was all smiles reading something. Well that something came from Steven Spielberg. Spielberg wrote Johnson a letter to congratulate him of all his success and of encouragement.

Johnson appeared at a press conference for the San Andreas Movie and was asked about the letter. Johnson became speechless, when the producer of San Andreas Beau Flynn spoke up and said “The letter was written as a fan. Dwayne added a little more by stating “he (Spielberg) helped me get away from reality and feel high on life through his movies. Johnson, producer Flynn and director Peyton all agreed that San Andreas has many elements of a Spielberg film and his work served as inspiration while making San Andreas.

Here is the caption from the Instagram post:

By @therock:
Grinnin’ now like a big ass kid… When I was 8yrs old I sat front row to see a sold out INDIANA JONES in its opening weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of that theater excited and wanted to be “Indy”.. cool, funny, charming with the ladies and kickin’ ass w/ a smile. But at 8yrs old I was also perfectly content playing w/ my Star Wars figures and sneaking off listening to Richard Pryor concerts. Throughout the years I’ve credited this man and his movies as being my greatest inspiration in becoming an actor and wanting to always make “his kind” of movies – entertaining, quality and above all else.. heart. Just receiving this personal letter from him and its not only made me incredibly humbled and grateful, but it’s also brought me back to being that 8yr old boy again who not only loves movies, but I now get to make the movies I love and enjoy the impact they have on others. THANK YOU STEVEN SPIELBERG for these inspiring and motivating words in your letter and cheers to making sure I’m always listening to that little voice in my gut. #CoolestGiftEver #BigAss8yrOldKid #SpielbergInspired
