No one lives up to a nickname quite like Dwayne Johnson. It’s a quiet May afternoon in a tranquil suburb outside Boston and all 6 feet, 5 inches and 260 pounds of the man most commonly known as “The Rock” have just returned to his house fresh from a midday training session. Still catching his breath from the taxing workout, Johnson strides in wearing a sweat-soaked gray hoodie and extends his arm for a firm handshake while flashing his famous pearly-white smile before quickly excusing himself to change. “I put my Elvis shirt on for you,” his voice booms throughout the cavernous hallways as he reemerges, proudly puffing out his chest to display a bright yellow shirt with an image of the legendary king of rock ’n’ roll.

LAS VEGAS — The world might be crumbling in the earthquake action thriller San Andreas, but Dwayne Johnson has a pretty great perch.
Friday’s opening comes during a particularly strong streak for The Rock. San Andreas, which casts him as a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue pilot, explodes in theaters even as his megahit Furious 7continues to roll at the box office.
Furious 7 has shown staying power, ranking eighth last weekend (with $2.8 million) and continuing to add to its staggering $1.5 billion worldwide.
Johnson says the already-hot Furious franchise was propelled to another level with the farewell to standout star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash on Nov. 30, 2013.
“It was a lot of different elements coming together at the same time, and the lead element being Paul, seeing him for the very last time,” Johnson told theater owners last month at the CinemaCon convention.
Still, Johnson added his own star power as Luke Hobbs, with Rentrak analyst PaulDergarabedian calling him “the ultimate box-office supercharger when added to the mix of existing franchises.”
In March, Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live, opening with a skit about being “franchise Viagra.” His films — including the G.I. Joe, Fast & Furious and Journey to the Center of the Earth franchises — have grossed nearly $5.7 billion, according to Rentrak.

Count Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson among the hordes of fans who are enthralled by watching every facet of what Conor McGregor does leading up to a fight.
Johnson is currently promoting his new movie ‘San Andreas’ and McGregor’s name came up because the former WWE superstar is a noted UFC fan and close personal friend of UFC president Dana White.
Ever the politician, Johnson said in a recent interview that he’s a huge fan of both McGregor and his UFC 189 opponent Jose Aldo, but there’s just something about the Irish featherweight that feels like staring into a mirror, circa 1999.

Dwayne Johnson is a naughty boy.
I caught up with The Rock last night at the premiere of his new action disaster flick San Andreas (in theaters on May 29). After complementing me on my bow tie, he revealed that, yes, he knows how to tie one, too.
“I do know how to tie myself—on a Friday night,” he said with a big grin.
When I offered, ” Fifty Shades of The Rock,” he beamed, “Fifty-one!”
Johnson’s big surprise at the premiere was his arrival to the red carpet screening at the TCL Chinese Theatre.
A rescue helicopter circled above him as he rolled down Hollywood Boulevard while hanging off the side of a Los Angeles Fire Department fire truck.
“It was amazing, right?” Johnson said. “That’s the way you make an entrance. The movie is big. It’s an epic movie. You’re gotta make an entrance like that.”

Last year he spent two months in Queensland, Australia filming disaster flick San Andreas.
And it certainly seems like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson picked up some of the local culture during that time.
The 43-year-old made a special appearance on Nine’s coverage of Wednesday’s NRL State Of Origin, introducing the first of up to three New South Wales vs. Queensland clashes.
Last April Johnson spent two months in Queensland, which at the time he called his ‘home away from home’ – so it’s not hard to guess what team he’s rooting for.
