"Dwayne Douglas Johnson (born May 2, 1972), also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American actor, producer, and semi-retired professional wrestler. Its been announced that Dwayne The Rock Johnson is set to recieve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Literally (and figuratively) a Hollywood heavyweight, DJs ascension from questionable wrestler to global megastar is one adored all over the world, so it seems only fair hes cementing himself in Hollywood history. A true true honor. What a full circle journey, he said on Twitter. So grateful and so many people to thank. See everyone there! Tequila on me. And, if youve ever watched The Rock work out, youll know that he works hard. Sometimes too hard. He loves to train so you struggle to keep him out of the gym, says his trainer, Dave Rienzi, who started working with 41-year-old Dwayne Johnson before Wrestlemania in 2011, and has designed his routines ever since. When I started working with Johnson, he was spending too much time in the gym, which was a little counter productive, so I had to try to limit him to a really intense 45-60 minutes, says Rienzi. Intense, as anyone taking on this programme will see, is something of an understatement.
