Dwayne Douglas Johnson was born on May 2, 1972, the son of Ata Johnson and professional wrestler Rocky Johnson. A lot of people ask, “What race is Dwayne Johnson?” and there isn’t really a simple answer. On his father’s side, he is African-Canadian/Black Nova Scotian with a small amount of Irish. On his mother’s side he is Samoan. So, he’s quite the mixed bag!
He grew up in Grey Lynn in Aukland, New Zealand, where he attended Richmond Road Primary School. After his family moved to the United States, Johnson began playing football at Freedom High School in the East Penn Conference. He was a promising prospect and got a full scholarship to go to the University of Miami as defensive tackle. He graduated from Miami in 1995 with a Bachelor’s degree in criminology and physiology.
Professional Wrestling Career
Johnson’s WWE career started off with a bang, and he made his WWF debut as Rocky Maivia, a combination of his father and grandfather’s ring names. It quickly changed to “The Rock” after he lost the Intercontinental Championship to Owen Hart on April 28, 1997. He was so comical in the ring that he started calling himself “The People’s Champion.” Not to mention, he wasn’t all that bad looking.
At 6’4 and 245 pounds, Dwayne Johnson’s workout was an intensive daily routine and a crucial part of his success. He won a record-breaking 17 championship reigns in WWE, which include 10 as world champion, winning the WWF/E Championship eight times and the WCW/World Championship twice. He will go down in wrestling history as one of the top box office draws.
After making his mark in wrestling, there came many Dwayne Johnson movies. He debuted in the May 2004 Vibe magazine as “the biggest star to hit the big screen since Arnold Schwarzenegger.” He started off small, playing cocky football player Joe Kingman in The Game Plan and Agent 23 in Get Smart. But then he graduated onto the big roles that made him the big bucks.
In 2011 he appeared in the fifth film of The Fast and the Furious as Luke Hobbs, a diplomatic security service agent assigned to hunt down the series’ protagonists. The movie grossed over $86.0 million in its opening weekend, making it the biggest opening for a Fast and the Furious film. He also went on to star in the 2013 film Snitch, returned to be in Fast & Furious 6, and hosted and produced two reality TV shows.
According to Forbes, Johnson was named the top-grossing actor of 2013 since his films brought in $1.3 billion worldwide for the year. A large chunk of his financial success can be attributed to Fast & Furious 6, which grossed $789.0 million globally. In 2017, Johnson is set to be in the action-comedy Central Intelligence with costar Kevin Hart.
Dwayne Johnson married Dany Garcia on May 3, 1997. They have a small family, which includes their daughter, Simone Alexandra, who was born in August 2001. After splitting in 2007, Johnson began dating Lauren Hashian while he was filming The Game Plan. They had their first child in September 2015. Johnson’s house is in Florida; it’s a 13,000-square foot mansion for which he spent $3.4 million. The impressive gated estate boasts six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a home theater, a gym, and a pool. Johnson also has a pretty impressive car collection, which includes his Chevrolet Chevelle. He loves his Chevelle so much that he’s been spotted driving it regularly and to the premiers of most of his movies. He’s also driven the car in a couple of his movies themselves.
Johnson has been able to pay for this kind of lavish lifestyle with his many endorsement.s Most recently, Johnson is set to sign a deal with Baltimore-based fitness brand Under Armour to create a range of products including footwear, apparel, and accessories. The Rock has also worked on promoting the Under Armour Connected Fitness program that includes the HealthBox tracker and the Record app. But it wasn’t always peachy perfect. Dwayne Johnson was arrested at his house last month for being handed pills after the LAPD got a call from his neighbors. TMZ reported that it was actually a misunderstanding and the pills were just muscle supplements. In an interview with TMZ, Johnson said, “The LAPD was just doing their job. I guess it wasn’t the brightest idea to hand my friend a few of my Power Pump XL and Testo Black X muscle supplements in broad day light. They’re completely legal by the way guys.”
