On the Cover: The Rock -- Another Side of Dwayne Johnson
In the December/January cover story, we step into the world of pro wrestler turned Hollywood star turned producer-entrepreneur Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, the box-office superstar whose public persona is a natural extension of his positive, can-do attitude. “He’s a genuinely good dude,” says Sony Pictures’ Tom Rothman. “You absolutely cannot fake that in life.” Combining brawn with megawatt charm, he’s endeared himself to fans of his blockbuster franchises (including the forthcoming sequel Jumanji: The Next Level) as well as to presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, a devotee of his HBO series Ballers. I’m excited to share the story, written by Josh Eells and with playful photography by Alasdair McLellan.
