CONGRATULATIONS #RockTheGQCover winner Matt Henry @imperialbeachdad!
Matt's picture caught my eye (he has a huge battle scar on the side of his head) and his story grabbed my heart. Brother's fighting a brain tumor and lives each day to the fullest.
100% gratitude. That's a powerful place to be.
For winning, I bought out a theater for Matt and all his friends and family and they'll watch a special private screening of #BAYWATCH. All the popcorn and drinks on me. I can't pay for the weed though. πŸ˜‚

Enjoy the movie brother, get ready to laugh your ass off and thank you for inspiring me to be better.

When I bring my WME agent @bslater9 to set of #Rampage and tickle the shit outta him when he's trying to look cool for the pic.
Been a real honor building global enterprise with McGiggly Giggles here over the years.
He's the best in the biz.
Got ya brotha!

When I took this iconic absurdity of a picture in 1996 I was one year removed from sleeping on a used mattress I took from a garbage dumpster in the back of an hourly sex motel. Couldn't afford to buy a bed so we do what we gotta do to get by. You can imagine all the fun colorful bodily fluids I tried my best to clean off.
21 years later I'm taking the same photo backstage hosting #SaturdayNightLive for the fifth time. If you're going thru your own tough times "used mattress" stage, do your best to have faith things'll get better and always be willing to outwork your competition because you never know where life is gonna take you.
And ALWAYS remember to place a soft tissue under your left elbow as to protect the fabric of the cheap ass swag turtleneck that had you out here looking like a bad ass buff lesbian.
Oh and tuck the thumb in the fanny pack. Always tuck the thumb. πŸ€™πŸΎ



πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Surprise! *For the record there were no young kids in this theater.
We've been having special audience screenings of #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯ across the country and the people have been LOVING the movie, which is always the most gratifying part.
Last night, I surprised a packed house of about 500 fans who just finished watching #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯. You can literally feel the buzz in the air.
You can also feel my mind racing the moment the girls shout "I LOVE YOU" and of course, I find my way into saying,
I love you too. Well, you sound like someone I can love. A little horny. πŸ˜‚
Hey, it's Baywatch, so it's all about the rated R FUN with audiences worldwide.
Love U back Atlanta and thanks for the warm welcome and having fun with us!
OPENS THIS THURS! (special s/o to my boy Rodney Carrington for the "drunk and horny" joke. One of my favs).


Lucky stuff. πŸ€

Before every big performance (big scene in a movie, big event, Oscars etc) I always wear my lucky socks.
I have 5 or so pair that are in rotation.
For my big #SaturdayNightLive show this past weekend, I decided to go with my lucky STAR WARS socks. Harnessing the Force like the big ass turbo geek that I am.
As fate would have it, SECONDS after this pic was taken, one of my team members walks in my dressing room and says, "Hey JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg are right outside your door!" WTF!?! Was a total surprise.
I walked out, gave 'em both big hugs, they wished me luck and I told them to enjoy the show.
Real cool moment. Lucky socks rule. πŸ€™πŸΎ


Just a little dead man's fat, now shut the f*ck up and let it drip in your mouth.
THIS THURS the dysfunctional Avenger's of the Beach arrive. #SummerBiggestComedy #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯


We had a blast, as I "announced" my run for POTUS on our season finale of #SaturdayNightLive and asked my good buddy Tom Hanks to be my running mate.
Congrats SNL cast and crew on a dynamite finale and THANK YOU everyone for tuning in and having fun with us.

10am. Warming up. Pre #SaturdayNightLive clangin' & bangin'. Mind sharp. Focus relentless. This workout will help me sharpen a new teenage rap character I might debut tonight, called #IcePube.

Regardless of what color we are or what walk of life we come from, achieving our goals become real when we put in the consistent, daily hard work and above all else, we #GoHard.
Huge congrats to my hard working ohana @laurenhashianofficial, @aja_elan & @walterfrench (all three who wrote and performed) and the rest of talented Go Hard team.
Very cool to see this song become a success and motivate/inspire the people.
Myself included. Humble hungry.

This was funny.
I was wondering why my feed was blowing up from women watching #TheBachelorette.
Appreciate the bro-luv from all the guys on the cast.
Started to think about it... If I wasn't who I was today - not famous and just a guy trying to find that elusive luv on a hugely popular reality TV show.
I WOULD BE A TERRIBLE CHOICE if I were on the show as a contestant. I cuss too much, my hands are too calloused and rough, my sense of humor is straight up outhouse rated R, I sing off key, think taking drives in my pick up is sexy and find great pride in being the current reigning, defending, undisputed heavyweight tongue wrestling champion of world.
I'm 100% positive I would get kicked off the show's first episode when I ask The Bachlorette, with a cool wink....
You ready for a shot at the tongue wrestling title woman?
No rose for DJ and he immediately gets sent home.
But he does go home a champion. 🌹



Luv this one & her personality. Very infectious and insanely talented @katyperry. Not sure who the big, brown, bald tattooed one is with the πŸ’€shirt ruining the pic but whatev.. We're goin' out with a bang! #SaturdayNightLive #SeasonFinale πŸ”₯


We run in slo-mo, we kick ass in high speed and you pee yourself from laughing so hard. The dysfunctional Avengers of the Beach finally arrive. #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯IN ONE WEEK MAY 25.


"Baywatch was a risky Rated R movie to make, but producer, Dwayne Johnson and crew have overcome the risks and delivered the most fun (and hottest) action comedy of the summer". Thank you press amigo. Team work, makes the dream work.

Congrats to our #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯ #SlowMoChallenge winners Justin Chen (@Justintimeguy),
Rich Guy (@TheDarkBlu) and Jimmy Pope (@Jimmythepope)!! These guys (and gals) went from having a slow-mo house party in Baltimore to joining us in Miami for our big #BAYWATCH world premiere premiere!
Glad you guys had a blast and loved the movie! And yup, I love holding contests because, truthfully...I love giving fun sh*t away.



I got you all. I am your safe place. Grab my body parts. I mean, hold on.

Here's the epic culmination of my dude @LoganPaul's attempt to join our @BAYWATCHMovie squad. It began months ago when I had to tell Logan that his part was cut from the movie. I didn't want to let our blondie babyface bro down, so I said, "If you're up for a challenge...and I don't mean growing facial hair...your work starts now..." Cut to today, he's looking for a way to win the heart of our BAYWATCH bae @AlexandraDaddario. You definitely can't #BeBAYWATCH if you can't get the girl, so I set him up w/ my boy @LifeOfDesiigner to create the this craziness called #SongOfTheSummer. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯You're going to want to watch this...LINK IN BIO.


It’s time to #RockTheGQCover!! Kicking off a very cool contest where you guys have the chance to win a private screening of @BaywatchMovie in your hometown with all of your friends and family. Here’s what you gotta do - Get yourself a copy of my latest issue of @GQ Magazine, do your best recreation of the cover, then share it on Instagram with the hashtags #RockTheGQCover AND #Contest. I’m personally picking the winner soon, so be sure to get your photos in by this SUNDAY! Get iconic, get sexy and get funny. #RockTheGQCover #Contest #BAYWATCHπŸ”₯ * More info in my bio.



I truly luv and appreciate every single one of these good humans.
@thejonbass @priyankachopra @ilfenator @alexandradaddario @kellyrohrbach @zacefron.
They all bring their unique values and qualities to elevate the game. They're all PHENOMENAL and F'N HILARIOUS in our movie and I'll happily commit and go the distance with them anytime. Just say the word and I got your backs. And your fronts.
Let's all talk about the elephant in the room here...our four bad ass & talented leading ladies are just straight up alien πŸ‘½ level gorgeous. So good looking they're from another planet. It's just stupid. Stupid.

Our anchor.
Last week was the hardest I've ever had to manage w/ an average of 3 1/2 hours of sleep per night due to work and travel. Fun.
Yesterday I woke up at 5am, dog tired, blood shot eyes and stepped into my gym before I had to meet with the press and "be on" all day. Thought what the fuck am I doing? Do I just do cardio to get some blood going and wake up or do I turn around and not do anything due to fatigue.
I said, ahhh fuck it and decided to train legs. Hardest and most grueling to train.
Wound up having one the best workouts I've ever had.
Grateful for my anchor.
We're all busy, we're all tired, we all got families to feed and work to get done. Whatever it is, find your anchor. Use it and project it. It'll help bring you balance in this crazy thing we call life.
For the record, your anchor does NOT have to be weird shit like big heavy chains that look like they belong in the next SAW movie.
