KUSA - Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a lot of things going for him, from muscles to a nice smile to the fact he actually seems like a fun guy.
And these are just a few of the reasons he was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” So, in a year where we lost David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Harambe, we thought we’d take a few minutes and focus on some good news.
Mainly, the fact that in the billions of years of the universe’s existence, we got to live at the same time as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, a national treasure.
He accepted his new title – and new responsibilities – with grace
The Rock talked about his new title as the Sexiest Man Alive on Instagram, imparting an important message:
“Remember, sexy isn’t just something you “try and be.” Sexy happens naturally when you’re comfortable just being yourself.
“Trust me, I’m an expert at this. (plus I read the “how to be sexy and a great kisser” guide when I was 8.”
This just means I'm still up at 4am trainin' hard, takin' care of my babies, drivin' my pick up truck and tellin' a few dirty/nerdy jokes... extremely sexily of course. Huge THANK YOU you to the entire hard working and very cool staff at @People as well as all the fans worldwide. I'm honored and grateful for the luv! Remember, sexy isn't something you "try and be". Sexy happens naturally when you're comfortable just being yourself. Trust me, I'm an expert at this. (plus I read the "how to be sexy and a great kisser" guide when I was 8). #SexiestManAlive
He took this fanny pack photo
He elevated the fanny pack to a new level of sexiness.
He dressed up as Pikachu for Halloween
And he danced. WE ARE NOT WORTHY OF THE ROCK.
Pikachu is baby Jasmine's FAVORITE character. So, for Halloween me and @laurenhashianofficial decided the real life Pikachu was gonna come to the house for a visit. What Pikachu didn't know was that Jazzy would start crying when he stopped dancing and demanded he continue to shake his tail with a loud "EH!". So, Pikachu danced over.. and over.. and over.. and over... and over.. again. By the time I dropped my 197th JuJu, the heat of this costume was kickin' my ass.😂 But, hey.. that's what daddy's do. #HappyHalloween #DaddyBlessedWithThatKnuckAndBuckStamina #NoLimitsWhenItComesToMakinEmHappy
He knows how to handle a flamethrower
This is skill.
🔥🔥Our bad ass #Jumanji FX team custom built my flamethrower so it attaches to my arm for tonight's big action sequences. I steer my motorcycle with one hand and become the King of Fire with the other. Already singed the hair off my arm, so we're off to a great start 😉👍🏾 Gonna be a fun night. #LetMeLightYouUp #AllNightLong
He likes animals
But if this picture is any indication, he doesn’t let puppy time get in the way of gym time.
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
He’s a huge nerd just like the rest of us
LOOK AT THESE SOCKS!!!!!!!!!
The Rock is also an adorable dad
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
We've missed you Hawaii. So good to be home. Aloha a'e au ika pua 'ume 'ume mau (I love the flower that attracts constantly). Thank you so much to the Head of Hawaii's Film Commission, Donne Dawson and airport staff for welcoming me and my family with such warm aloha. And even though baby Jasmine did NOT like her special Pikake (Jasmine) lei and started to cry when you put it around her neck, my first daughter Simone arrives next week and will have so many Hawaiian leis they'll go up to her eyebrows - which she will no doubt LUV IT! 🌺😉. Can't wait. Good to be home Hawaii.. excited and proud to bring another big film back to our island. I will now go steal my daily Snickers bar from 7-11 on Kapiolani Blvd. (a few of you know that inside joke). #Home #Ohana #LeiPikake #JUMANJI
Finally my big head is used for more than just a place to hang my hat.😉 The joys of being home w/ my ohana and playin' one of our fav games - slap daddy's head 'til I can see his big scary face. Song playing in the background is "O Tiare" (Justin Young). A song I started singing to her every day since she was one week old. Samoan lyrics are beautiful, "Ia alofa le Atua, ma tausi ia te 'oe..." which translates to "may God take loving care of you". When Jasmine learns to talk, I'm sure she'll ask me to please stop singing😂. I must now go do something very manly and bad ass to counterbalance this post. #Ohana #Aiga #Grateful #SlapDaddysHeadCauseItsABigToy
Even though he’s a big movie star now, he still remembers where he came from (and it’s awesome)
He can sing
Look up his WWE serenades – we can’t post some of those on 9NEWS.com.
So instead, here he is singing in a Disney movie:
In conclusion, we're not worthy of the Rock. Here's a photo gallery:
