Who's your fav actor? YOU.
It's called - using my charm to get compliments from 8yr old boys who stare up at me and point like I'm a gigantic beast.
On my breaks from shooting Rampage, my producers and I head over to Atlanta Zoo to meet with animal experts for my research and luckily for me, I run into these brilliant little humans who will one day grow up and do great things in life.
You lil' dudes stay cool/study hard ~ Uncle Rock πŸ€™πŸΎ#AtlantaZoo #Research #Rampage #AwesomeLittleHumans


First look at our season 3 poster for HBO's #1 half-hour show two years and counting... #Ballers.
Thank you fans for your incredible support. This season will be our BEST.
Tune in to @hbo on JULY 23rd 10PM.


Big congrats to my brotha @iamjamiefoxx and his #1 show on @foxtv #BeatShazam. Tune in TONIGHT @ 8pm to see why it's #1. People are having a blast! So will you.
For the record, I'll be beating Shazam's ass tonight when I watch the show, cause I'm a G who knows my music. (and as the man who will one day play Black Adam, this ain't the only time I'll be beating Shazam's ass). πŸ˜‰πŸŽΆπŸ’ͺ🏾⚑️


Thank you to my amazing costar, the Oscar nominated @naomieharris for the energy, focus and discipline you bring to set daily. What a mix of beauty and talent, but don't let the pretty face fool you, she can still take down any gigantic genetically modified monster that gets in her way.
Grateful to share the screen with such a class act.

Yeah but sometimes traffic is just gonna have to wait to make fans happy πŸ˜‰
I was driving in my pick up truck after work and my guy here pulled up beside me, recognized me and started freaking out. I rolled the passenger window down to say hello and then he REALLY freaked out. Jumped out of his rig and came around to my side where he stood in the oncoming traffic lane.
He said, "Holy shit Rock you're my hero, can I take a picture with you?" I said yeah man but let's pull over to the side and .. before I could even finish he was gone like a flash, "Hold on let me get my phone".. The light's turned green and now cars are coming towards him and driving around him. Not one car was beeping their horn because I'm sure they thought some road rage was going down.
No rage, just some big, brown, bald tattooed man in his pick up truck taking selfies in traffic.
This dude put a grateful smile on my face and got a big ass laugh outta me as well.
Besides the traffic jam we caused and his ass almost getting hit by oncoming traffic, making fans like this happy will always be the best part of fame.
Thanks dude for making my day. πŸ€™πŸΎ #INeedDarkerWindowTint #GreatestFansInTheWorld


Nice way to wake ya up and set your adrenal glands on fire.
Massive C-17 with the entire back of the plane blown out, 35,000ft in the air and nose diving an inertial trajectory so fast I'm experiencing zero-g. (no g-force). These scenes are intense. Physically and mentally draining.. but at least I smell good and have multiple unattractive intensity veins in my forehead.
Pack a lunch, it's gonna be a long day.

My #1.
Had the BEST Father's Day having my first daughter @simonegjohnson come to set to hang w/ me while I worked.
She gave me a Father's Day card and wrote something far more inspiring than I'm sure she expected it to be. *I'm so proud to call you my dad. I admire how hard you work and are always so kind to everyone. It truly motivates me and I love you so so much.
The thing that got me the most was the realization that of all the things I do that could influence my kid, she's motivated by hard work and kindness. Not fame, not money or flashy things to buy, but hard work and kindness.
I'm so proud to call her my daughter and so grateful that my influence as the #1 man in her life (for now;) are two fundamental things that can take her and any young girl or boy far in this world.. hard work and kindness.
She also bad ass with the most razor edge, wicked sense of humor, so you know I'm proud this apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Big Father's Day smile as I'm leaving the house to go to work and my baby comes running to me saying, "up up" to sit on my shoulders.
As busy and complex as my life is, these simple core moments with my ohana will always be my anchor for balance and gratitude.
Trying to get her to smile but she's too fascinated by the "beauty" aka huge circumference of my bald head. #ToFathers 🍻


Early mornin' Father's Day iron session before heading into work. Cheers to all the papa grizzly bears and silverbacks out there holding it down and gettin' shit done to take care of your families. Happy Father's Day from the always uncomfortably hot southern Iron Paradise. 🐻🦍πŸ’ͺ🏾


Shootin' a dope commercial all weekend. I'm sworn to secrecy but I am taking requests. Let's start with Sam Cooke or Merle Haggard and excuse me while I make up my own keys to sing in #MiseryAndGin 🎸🎀


#TBT gettin' after it hard core with my family and fellow gym beast @jlo. #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #Sistah πŸ€™πŸΎ


As producer and πŸ’― unlicensed doctor, when I see a potential concussion, I ask the most critical question.. Who's the Sexiest Man Alive?
Big stunt on set of #Rampage last night, my bud and bad ass stuntman, @DaveMacomber got thrown from one side of this massive C-17 plane to the other. Overshot his crash pad and flew straight into the wall and knocked himself out.
He doesn't remember his last name, nor can he remember the name of his kids.

Jokes aside, after this incident we shut down production and let our hard working crew go home. I stayed here w Dave and our stunt coordinator @alpop.stunts and eventually got Dave to the hospital. Brain is in tact, CAT scan was clear and Dave takes it easy for a week before jumping back in the saddle.
A strong reflection of how our stunt brothers and sisters will always be the backbone of Hollywood.
All my luv, gratitude and respect.

Big exhausted smile 'cuz this monster workout is handled and done. Keep the gym hot and the music loud. *thank you brotha @daverienzi for this killer session.
I need a hug and a waffle. #HardestWorkersInTheRoom πŸ€™πŸΎπŸ¦


Celebrating our third season of @HBO's #1 half hour show, #Ballers premiering next month.
#1 hour show is bad ass #GameOfThrones
Thank you Television Academy and EMMY mag.
And huge shout to our ballin' fans for the amazing luv. Luv U back.
Now enjoy shots of me looking like I take myself way too serous.

Happy tears? Best part of fame. Just stop crying in my shirt leaving stains. πŸ˜‚ #RockQAndA πŸ€™πŸΎ


Always fun taking questions over on our @sevenbucksds YouTube channel. #RockQAndA #TheNumberBelowOne πŸ’ͺ🏾


We have a problem. The beasts survived. Their blood and tracks headed cross country...
#PartyInHell #Rampage 4-20-2018


It's called the DJ flip.
I do this fun lil' thing when adults and kids ask me to sign the back of their t-shirts.. I flip the sharpie around and pretend to write on the back of their heads and necks.
99% of the time, fans LOVE the idea of me actually writing on their bodies. They get all wiggly and just laugh their asses off.
But lil' big man was NOT feeling it. πŸ˜‚. Appreciate y'all waiting for such a long time to meet me and say hello. Luv U back.
Good way to end a very long day of work.

*thigh grab was unplanned, but instinctual since I'm in protect mode. 🦍
Intense week for me and my partner in survival, @naomieharris.
Total destruction and chaos caused by the three gigantic rampaging beasts putting us in constant "fight or flight" mode.
Lucky SOB to have such a spectacular actress by my side puttin' in this level of intense emotion daily.
If you haven't seen "Moonlight" yet, check it out and you'll see why her powerful performance was nominated for an Oscar.
Until then, we'll keep dancing at this party in hell.
And we'll see you there.

Always keep these lil' daily mantras close to me (hardest worker in the room, humble/hungry etc) as a reminder that there's no substitute for consistent daily hard work.
I started saying "rent's due" to myself when we were evicted when I was 14, as a personally motivator to hit the gym and workout. But what's funny about that is technically there was no actual "rent due" considering we didn't have a place to live. πŸ˜‚

I got lucky along the way, because these days I'm not getting evicted, but I'm still up at 4am dropping sweat, because the rent's due.
It's ALWAYS due.

First look at our new #EmmyMagazine cover celebrating our third season of @ballershbo.
The balance of both a film and television career has been a focused strategy with lots of moving parts over the years, but ultimately very rewarding because of the growth it's allowed me to have as an actor and producer.
Grateful to share my lessons on this kind of success. And squeeze myself into a chair I'm way too big for.

Cool to help lead the ever evolving digital & social landscape in Hollywood. HUGE shout out to our digital company @sevenbucksds who continues to create new, innovative and FUN ways to connect with our global audience.
At the end of the day, connecting with fans will always be my #1 priority and the bonus of that philosophy is that it also happens to be the best part of my job. The. Best.
#AudienceFirst #SevenBucksDigital #SevenBucksProds πŸ€™πŸΎ


After fans have been waiting for hours to hopefully meet me, naturally my evil sense of humor kicks in and I pretend to drive right by them.
After a 12hr work day, I can promise you, that being nice and stopping for fans is (literally) the easiest (and most fun) part of my job.
Love y'all back, thank you for waiting all day and thanks for always putting a smile on my big 'ol face. #FanLuv #Grateful


Respect is given when it's earned, and has this guy ever earned it. Congratulations @hhgarcia41 on becoming our new President of Production for @sevenbucksprod.
With our company's growth, it's very satisfying to see Hiram and all our employees grow as well.
Congrats H and let's keep working hard to create global entertainment for the fans.
And if things ever go sideways, and you no longer cut it as our president, judging by this pic, you'll make a fine contestant on The Bachelor.

From being broke (livin' on that Kraft mac & cheese baby;) and wrestling in flea markets for $40bucks per match to years later, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL conducting a case study on the success and growth of our company @sevenbucksprod.
Big shout out to my good bud and professor @anitaelberse for teaching the case this semester. I look forward to joining you one day on campus and having a big, fat fun Q&A with the students.
@danygarciaco and I are proud of our company's build out and growth in film, tv and digital space.
Onward. Upward.

Was a good night and luv filled the air. Great to have all our Warner Bros/New Line execs down to visit set of #Rampage. Including my good bud Kevin "Tsuji" Tsujihara, WB Chairman & CEO.

And out of my great respect and admiration for the OG himself, DeNiro will always get a manly Rock kiss on the cheek. Or technically his head because I'm so tall.
Great hang time boys. Luv ya both. πŸ€™πŸΎ #RampageDinner #TheTsuji #OGBobbyD


Chain work. Startin' the week off strong..ish.
275lbs. 5 half reps. 10 full reps with 2 sec pause at the bottom.
Hawaiian warrior chants providing the power and mana (spirit) for the workout.
The english interpretation of the chants are, "If you ever see this big, brown, bald, tattooed man working out, just say a quick hello and keep on walking. If you stop and try to talk to him.. he will eat you. Alive. Ladies get a 15 second grace period. Chivalry lives.
You guys get after it and have a productive week. DJ
