Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is pictured as a young lad posing with his handsome daddy Rocky Johnson. The former professional wrestler was born in Hayward, Calif. on May 2, 1972. S you can see after the break, wrestling is in The Rock's blood.

Rocky Johnson was a well-known professional wrestler. The Rock's mother, Ata Johnson is a non-blood relative of the Anoa'i wrestling family, and his grandmother, Lia Malvia, was one of wrestling's few female promoters.

The Rock attended high school in Hawaii where he lettered in football, track & field and wrestling. Thanks to his matinee idol looks, he transitioned easily to acting and starring in action thrillers on the big screen.

Unfortunately, The Rock's latest film 'Baywatch' bombed at the box office. Critics called the movie "dumb", "vulgar", "boring" and "sexist".

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Legacy

    FLATLINE!!!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    The Rock is fine and he get it from his fine ass daddy...yes!

  • Malcom Flex

    And neither of those males want black women ...

  • Guess Who

    Dwayne Johnson is handsome indeed and so was his dad...but why won't black women ever call him out on never dating black women or having a black woman as a love interest in any movie? We do it to other stars but it seems that "The Rock" gets a pass. Why is that? Hell, he fine and all..but ain't that rather...coonish on his part? I'm only asking...

  • Guess Who

    THANK YOU

  • Mbailey

    UMMM! Ummm! Smacking my lips!

  • Mbailey

    WHY should I care? His money ain't going into my pocket.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    You're right. Idr him having a brown/black love interest either ? Hollyweird doesn't like that though.

  • Mbailey

    AND the world goes round and round. He don't know you anyhow.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    YES! That natural brawn LOL ?? WITH the hair on his chest too ?? LOL.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I'd let him beat with his @ss ???? LOL ?

  • Guess Who

    That's good that you don't. I'm not talking about that. If you don't have any issue with any black man exclusively dating white or other, then this doesn't apply to you. I'm talking about no one ever comments - when they have in the past VERY vocally about other black men - on him never having any love interest as black. If you don't care, good for you.

  • Guess Who

    LOL...is this a trigger for you, sir?

  • Guess Who

    Well smack on, dude. LOL..if you're black that is ALL you could ever do with him or any of his ilk.

  • SummerBaby

    The Rock up top showing all his back teeth.

  • bemetoo

    Hum mm let him beat with his ass wtf I don't get it are u a man??

  • Vonn

    Dwayne is up there looking like a Polynesian princess in that pink suit.

  • leapyearpisces

    One of the Usos brothers is married to a black chick, I think her name is Naomi(?) she was on Total Divas, and Roman Reigns girlfriend (I think now wife) is black, and all of them (the rock, the usos, and roman) are related.

  • Kirenee

    Diamond in the back, sunroof top kind of fine!

  • Kirenee

    Ok ?.

  • KIm

    His dad isn't my type but I guess this confirms his racial makeup which he's been avoiding talking about all these years until recently?

  • MsPam

    I use to love watching Rocky Johnson as a kid, don't like the Rock he seems phony to me!

  • Malcom Flex

    Black women stay supporting males that hate them. The favor is never returned though.

  • Malcom Flex

    Because many black women are brainwashed Mammys "nothing but a brother" even though both males hate them.

  • Malcom Flex

    All that deflecting.

  • Malcom Flex

    You're welcome. So many black women are dumb as a bag of mud. They don't know how to follow the money trail.

  • Malcom Flex

    Because he is phony.

  • Malcom Flex

    It's wistful thinking many BW are totally insane with this nonstop love fest for men who wouldn't pee on them if they were on fire.

  • leapyearpisces

    LOL. No deflecting. I was just stating facts. Trust, as a black woman, I stopped long ago worrying about negros who don't want or value black women, and focus and support the ones that do. Dwyane Johnson and others like him have BEEN stopped getting my money a looooooonnnng time ago. I just choose not to bothered by it, because at the end of the day, I can't control who a celebrity beds or chooses to be with, but I damn sure can make sure my funds are not supporting the bed they sleeping in or their lifestyle if who they choose to benefit is not representative of me and mine.

  • TeeTee

    thank you , ya daddy black and you was born in the bay!

  • TeeTee

    he don't claim to be black. that's why. And why does he have to date a black woman just bc his daddy black? Just asking...

  • Tena

    Damn his papa was fine back in the day. I see where he gets his good looks.

  • Tena

    School them girl!!

  • Mbailey

    APPARENTLY it is for you. All you black girls do is whine every day about some star who does not want you. Don't they have men where you live or are you so ugly, you ran them all off? Entertainers and superstar athletes are out of your league, so why be jealous of people who don't even know you're alive?

  • Kirenee

    Mummm hummm!

  • Mbailey

    THESE are rich superstars and athletes. They don't know you exist, bew. So it ain't none of your business.

  • Judas & GOD

    im sure he have a big .big Ego ..lol

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LMAOOO oops! Let me fix that!

  • ZZZ

    Personally, I don't care who he dates, marries or have babies with because whether he claims to be black or not, he isn't all that to me. The only movies I paid to see him in was Fast Five, Fast 6 & Fast 7 and it sure wasn't because of him.

  • KIm

    Deflecting is right. What does all these other people in the WWE have to do with The Rock and his father specifically not liking black women? ?

  • KIm

    Ya know...ol self hating ass?

  • Quitedeliteful

    ??? Cat Daddy!!! ???

  • LibraGirlonly

    He doesn't get a pass from me. I can't control who people date I just won't support his work that's all.

  • leapyearpisces

    HI Kim, please see my response to Malcom. :-). He made a statement, and I was just stating FACTS, that maybe the preference is for the Rock and his dad, because clearly other men in the Rock''s family tree have no problem with marrying black women (that is how my response was revelant). At any rate, like I said below, I just choose to NOT get my panties in a bunch because I, at the end of the day, know that I have the power as far as how I address, and how I respond, to the obvious snub of black women by men of color. A-I appreciate the brothers WHO DO VALUE us black women, B- I RESERVE my dollar to support men of color who do value black women (i.e, Samuel Jackson, Lebron
    James, Will Smith, etc.). My daughter has a closet full of Jordan''s in her closet, what I can tell you, is that I did not buy ONE PAIR. I haver never PURCHASED a pair of Jordan's, and don't plan to (unfortunately, I cannot control what her aunt and uncles, brothers and sisters, and grandparents choose to do with THEIR hard earned money), the difference is, I choose not to let who some celebrity is fugging, and who they choose to spend their life with bother, me like that. You want to put your wealth back into Becky's or Maria''s community? Cool. You juse won't be getting any of my funds to help you. Simple as that. Nothing to have a tantrum over. I got bigger fish to fry. I got two kids going to the 10th grade, and I-ME have to start preparing them for SAT's,- I am not about to use my energy on Dwyane Johnson and his pappy, who can't see the glory of the ORIGINAL WOMAN, the mother of all RACES, the ILLUSTRIOUS black woman. :-)

  • LibraGirlonly

    That's not true. There are plenty of black men out here that will only date black women so stop lying about them hating us. I will also add their are plenty of white men that only date sistah's . They make it known that they adore us in all of our glory. I myself will only be with a brother. It's what I'm attracted to quite naturally. I was made to be with a black man because that's what my soul tells me but every one else is free to date whom they want tho.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    The Rock? I thought everyone knew who his dad was. You sure this isn't Ole Vin Diesel you speak of?

  • Malcom Flex

    Excellent question. That most BW don't wish to confront "one sided loyalty is for suckas!"

  • Malcom Flex

    Who popped your backdoor cherry the wrong way? Who hurt you?

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    Am I the only one who never considered him Black? lol He's not Black to me. He's mixed with a lot of things but Idk if Black was one of them lol

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    His dad is not visibly Black. Did I miss something? lol What is his racial makeup. These look like a bunch of mixed breed people.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Hey Rock DADDY!!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I hollard!!!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Maybe he don't have a interest in black women.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I was going to ask the same thing, but didn't wanna come off as shady!

  • ihatethesebitches

    He's always talked about his makeup. Where do you get your info from. Buy his autobiography, it came out about 18 years ago. It's all in there.

  • ihatethesebitches

    It's not black women he doesn't have an interest in, it's attractive women. Both his baby mommas are ugly. One is manly looking, the other looks like predator.

  • Tynamight

    I wasn't a fan of Baywatch when it was on the air so I sure as heck wasn't gonna watch it on the big screen.

    According to rottentomatoes.com, the movie was #3 this past weekend and earned $18.1m. It didn't "bomb" per se...

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Well damn

  • Guess Who

    That's apparent and ain't shyt wrong with it. I am asking why black women give him a pass but not other famous black men when they do it?

  • Guess Who

    SMH....you keep missing the point or you're just obtuse to a fault. Boy, bye. Please re-read the FIRST thing I posted. It has zero to do with your opinion. Dumb azz bish, lol.

  • Guess Who

    You sound like a raging maggot colored idiot. Sit down. Cave post opt just trolling for grins.

  • Guess Who

    Well, his dad's first wife and two kids are full black. That ain't the point. LOL..I am asking WHY black women give HIM a pass but not OTHER black men when it comes to this? Why are some of yall not getting that question? Taye Diggs, Terrance Howard, even Eddie Murphy...and and all athletes...they get dragged for exclusively dating other. Dwayne is the same way but women fawn over him and never once diss him. I"m asking WHY does he get a pass? IDGAF who he dates, I'm asking WHY does he get a pass on the disses when other black men don't?

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Samoans, Sherlock.

  • Guess Who

    LMAO.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Your comment states that you are hard on the eyes.

  • Guess Who

    LOL...that's not what I asked.

    Let me repeat. Why don't he get dissed like all other black men do when it comes to dating exclusively other women? That is the question. IDGAF who he dates, IDGAF the reason for it. I'm asking sistas: Why don't we ever say shyt about Dwayne doing the same thing we have dragged other brothers about? THAT is the question. Not why he does it or how he does it. Has NOTHING to do with him but moreso how black women respond to his preferences versus how they have responded other black men's preferences. I don't know how much more clearer I can get, lol.

  • Guess Who

    LOL.

    In what way?

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAO!

  • Guess Who

    LOL...his daddy but he was high and really thought it was the Rock's fist bulldozing his worn out bussy. Imagine the bitterness, self-loathing and disgust he felt once realizing it was all a delusion. SIMPLY.DREADFUL.

  • Sojourner’s Truth

    Jet Magazine busted him. After he was exposed he slowly acknowledge.

  • Mbailey

    JUST because you are not attractive, and lots of men you desire pass you up, does not mean that the entire world is against you. Your mama should have taught you that you aren't shyt, and have to work for a living and for everything you want. Rich and famous people automatically desiring you isn't one of things you get to have. Be somebody, and maybe you can meet and fight over them, just like the rest of the heauxs.

  • Guess Who

    LOL stfu, you ignorant, confused fag. Big mad talking about rich and famous people STILL missing the point like the empty headed, bitter simp you are. Arguing over a point that you are still trying to make but not pulling it off. Face it, you're a dumb bum with the comprehension of a tit mouse. BlTCH :)

  • TeeTee

    Okay. One - -have you ever heard "The Rock" Johnson say that he was black? How can one get mad at someone for not dating black women - when they do not acknowledge that they black anyway? The others are black and claim to be. Personally - I don't even care. But thats like asking why Vin Diesel don't date black women.

  • Guess Who

    Nah, I aint never heard him acknowledge he was black. Do you think that be the reason why black women don't call him out like they do other black men when they do not date black women? Again, why the pass? Why so defensive? No you...but in general? Personally, I find him gorgeous, charming and funny however I would be remiss if I didn't state the obvious.

  • TeeTee

    I think that may be the reason and... yes he is very handsome. But his Polynesian heritage has set him apart in Hollywierd too.. if it ain't broke don't break it.

  • bemetoo

    For real his dack looks fat

  • Mbailey

    NOBODY wants you, boo. Nobody at work nor in your community. But you think rich people can hear you screaming through your computer. You don't have any skin in the rich man/woman's game-----so you're out! Lots of ugly people get married and have families. Your turn will come one day......

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    And Samoans are not Black. End of story. Sherlock lol

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LMAO ???

  • bemetoo

    Girl look at those pecks...I would lick and suck all of him..sex would be so intense with him, look at his eyes girl I wish I could find a man that looks like a 2017 version

  • bemetoo

    He's finer than the rock phony ass

  • morenYAHdelsur

    ??????He got that OG swag huh? I'm hollering laughing ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Dwayne's definitely been using them 'roids or something!

  • bemetoo

    Yep ...he had roid rage on the set of fast n furious

  • bemetoo

    Yes he does... I would throw my slim ass all over him ...he can beat it up all day while I call him daddy..look at him he's so masculine lookin

  • morenYAHdelsur

    "What a beautiful chocolate man" *Shawn & Marlon White Chicks voice* LOL.

    I feel like all these scrawny lil kids need to take note ?

  • bemetoo

    For real tight jean skirt bag purse wearing men need to take more than a note

  • Mbailey

    YOU'RE ugly, sweetie. Stand proud in it.

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    Yes, daddy is delicious too.

  • Hmmm~?

    Maybe because he isn't black. He's somoan mixed with something else. All of the women he's been with were the same color he was, so I'm not understanding the point of your argument.

  • Guess Who

    Uh...he's black and Samoan. SMDH. Da fuk? Did you just post just to be involved because you sound like a damn idiot.

    BTW, there is no argument. I have made my questions to be as clear as hell and if you are that obtuse, then there is no help and maybe you should steer clear of ....well...everything asked on this board.

    Dumb bishes, I swear, lol.

  • Hmmm~?

    ? His mother is samoan and his dad isn't fully black. Again, all of the women he's been with were the same color he was, plus he was not raised around black people. He also doesn't identify as black, so the fact that you're clearly pressed about him not dating black women makes absolutely no sense, and is a clear testament to your bitter mentality that so many black women share.

  • Guess Who

    His father is completely black canadian. SMDH. You know he has two older kids...and Dwayne's eldest brother confirmed his dad is full black and his mother (the eldest son, not Dwayne) is FULL BLACK. Sit your retarded azz down, lol. Making up shyt as you go along. I will believe his flesh and blood son over what a faceless dullard (YOU) says any day, lmao. GIRL.BYE. Dumb bishes!

  • Hmmm~?

    Their mother is not fully black as samoans are not black. Regardless of what their race is, Dwayne was not raised around black people which heavily influenced his preferences in regards to women. That's how sexual attractions work. Your original argument is still pointless and makes no sense.

  • Guess Who

    WTF? You're retarded. LMMFAO...let me see if I can dumb this down even thought I am not for sure if your comprehension skills are past a 1st grade level.

    Daddy Johnson married 3 times.
    He is full black, first wife was FULL BLACK. NOT MIXED, NOT SAMOAN, BLACK WOMAN...OKAY? They had 2 kids.
    2nd wife, Samoan. Had 1 kid. Dwayne.
    3rd wife...not black, she's irrelevant, no kids.
    The son...the first born, full black son has stated this. What are you NOT getting and why is this an issue for you to accept? LMAO..and why are you making my initial question about attraction. My initial question was for black women. Did you read that? It wasn't to diss Dwayne, it was moreso to ask why he gets a pass on not dating black but they (black women) diss other men for doing the same thing. THAT was my question. Not why he does it, who he does it with but why BLACK women give him a pass and not other brothers.

    Are you >>here<< yet? If not, hey...maybe you can order some old school hooked on phonics VHS tapes or Rosetta Stone but you really don't READ before you type.

    Peace out, sis.

  • Hmmm~?

    You question my reading comprehension when you're bringing up the ethnicity of Rocky's first wife, which is completely irrelevant to this conversation. I was referring to Dwayne's mother, who is samoan. The whole point of my argument is that Dwayne is barely black to begin with. And to answer your impertinent question; most people are unaware of Dwayne's ethnicity for the obvious fact that he does not appear black. That should've been entirely self-explanatory. Not sure why you had to go on this tangent about something so trivial?. I'd suggest finding a hobby.
