Starting with supporting roles in films such as The Mummy Returns, The Rock has built a solid career in action-adventure films over the past 20 years, with starring roles in film franchises such as The Fast and the Furious.
Dwayne Douglas Johnson (born May 2, 1972), also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American actor, businessman, and former professional wrestler.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, The Rock wrestled for WWE for eight years prior to pursuing an acting career. His films have grossed over $3.5 billion in North America and over $10.5 billion worldwide, making him one of the world’s highest-grossing and highest-paid actors.

EARLY LIFE

Prior to his emergence as a top actor beginning in the 2010s, Johnson was an athlete. At Freedom High School in Bethlehem Township, Pennsylvania in the Lehigh Valley, he ultimately emerged as a standout on the school’s football and wrestling teams, which competed in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference, a conference known for producing top professional and Olympic athletes.

He credits his high school football coach with helping inspire transformational changes in his life, which before entering sports in 11th grade had been characterized by fights and petty crimes as a high school teenager. His football capabilities at Freedom High School led him to be ranked as one of the top ten defensive tackle high school prospects in the nation, drawing the attention of several NCAA Division I college football programs.

Johnson accepted an athletic scholarship to play at the University of Miami, one of the country’s top college football programs.

FILM ERA

The Rock left WWE in 2004 and returned in 2011 as a part-time wrestler until 2013, making occasional appearances until retiring in 2019.  The Rock’s first film appearance was in 2001, The Mummy Returns. The following year he played his first leading role as the titular character in the sword and sorcery film The Scorpion King (2002). He has since starred in Disney films The Game Plan (2007), Race to Witch Mountain (2009), Tooth Fairy (2010), and Jungle Cruise (2021) as well as the action-adventure films Journey, The Mysterious Island (2012), G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013), Hercules (2014), Skyscraper (2018), San Andreas (2015) and Rampage (2018).

He also starred in the action comedy films Get Smart (2008), Central Intelligence (2016), Baywatch (2017), and Red Notice (2021). In 2016 he voiced Maui in the Disney animated film Moana (2016). His role as Luke Hobbs in the Fast & Furious films, beginning with Fast Five (2011), has helped it become one of the highest-grossing film franchises. The Rock also stars in the Jumanji films, appearing in Jumanji, Welcome to the Jungle (2017) and Jumanji The Next Level (2019), and is set to portray Black Adam in its superhero film adaptation.

 

NET WORTH

In the year 2020, The Rock received 87.5 million dollars for his works, according to a survey by Forbes. His net worth stands at $320 Million. His Beverly Hills mansion, purchased in April, is 1,637 square meters with six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.  The Rock owns several homes and has also bought a couple of houses for his mother. A car enthusiast, The Rock has a luxury collection that includes a rare Pagani Huayra, estimated to be worth over 1 million dollars.

The Rock is also active in the film business, of course, making productions for his own films. In 2012, the actor founded the production company Seven Bucks Productions, which got involved in films like Jumanji.
With a successful career, The Rock certainly doesn’t miss his wrestling days in the WWE – although weight training and fictional matches are part of his routine.

The Rock is also a massive car fan and, as the most popular actor in the world right now, he has access to a lot of them though fitting into them is a challenge.  His custom Ford F-150 truck is the only one he can actually fit into properly. Prices may start at $50,000 for a stock F-150 pickup, but God only knows how much all the modifications on The Rock’s personal truck cost. Among his collection are Ferrari and Lamborgini Cars that he actually has trouble getting into. He also has the habit of surprising people by gifting them with cars.
