For that, and many other reasons, he’s undoubtedly one of the most loved celebrities in the world, and deservedly so.
Bright Side is a huge fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and we would like to share with you the 9 reasons why we like him so much!
1. Dwayne Johnson is a great dad.
Dwayne Johnson is the perfect example of a super dad who loves his children. Being a dad of girls is a great challenge, but he just makes it look easy, despite the fact that he has 3 daughters. In an Instagram post, he shared: “Every man wants a son, but every man needs a daughter. All my girls have become the great equalizers in my life — I’m surrounded by estrogen and wouldn’t have it any other way!”
2. Dwayne Johnson is a great husband.
Aside from being a great father, he’s also a great husband and partner to his wife Lauren Hashian. He shared that he was very fortunate to fall in love once, but twice made him feel very lucky being in the position that he’s in. He also shared his admiration for his wife the day she gave birth to their daughter.

4. Dwayne Johnson is an inspiration to many.
When it comes to fitness and health, Johnson has inspired many men and women across the globe.

6. He overcame many hardships to get to where he is.
Since he was a kid, his family often struggled financially, his dad wasn’t around much, because he was a professional wrestler which made Dwayne angry at him. He wasn’t the perfect student either, as he got into an argument with one of the teachers at his high school. His professional football career didn’t go according to plan, since he didn’t get drafted into the NFL. However, despite his troubled past, full of lows, he rose above and made something of himself.
7. He doesn’t care about winning movie awards, he just wants to entertain.
He wants to entertain the audience, which means that he doesn’t want to do roles that are sad or depressing. He said that he had fought to change the ending of his movie Rampage because it was too sad. He was quoted as saying that he’s there to take care of the audience, so he doesn’t want to bring anything dark to them, maybe a little, but he, alongside the audience, will overcome it together.
8. Dwayne Johnson cares about his fans and friends.
He is one of the most popular celebrities in the world and he has quite a lot of fans. But that doesn’t bother him, as he expressed his gratitude in an Instagram post: “I appreciate you waiting so long tonight and I have so much love and gratitude for all of you. Takin’ pics with ya is one of the best and easiest parts of my job. Always happy to do it.” He never forgets his friends either, as he gifted his stunt-double a new truck, and thanked him for all of his hard work.
9. Dwayne Johnson loves his parents and takes care of them.
He absolutely loves his family. “This one felt good,” is how his Instagram post starts.
