Dwayne Johnson To Receive A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

As if being one of the sexiest men alive and being one of the most famous people on the planet wasn’t cool enough, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has only gone and gained some more cool points by scoring himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Now he is literally the coolest of the cool and we are so here for it.

The actor, producer and professional wrestler will receive his shiny new star during a very special ceremony on 13th December on the Hollywood Boulevard, in front of Hollywood and Highland. A superstar location for a global superstar and, well… His star.

Unsurprisingly, he seems pretty excited and humbled about the news.

So what exactly has Dwayne Johnson done to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, we hear you ask? Well aside from simply being The Rock which is enough of a reason anyway, the actor has worked tirelessly throughout his career on hit movie after hit movie. We actually can’t think of any movies in the last couple of years he hasn’t been in.

From San Andreas in 2015 to Moana in 2016 to The Fate of the Furious, Baywatch, and the forthcoming Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Rampage, and Skyscraper, Dwayne has been everywhere in recent times but it is not just his triumphs on the big screen that have enabled him to receive this honour. He is also a nice guy with an undeniably big heart which he uses to help others in need.

“Not only does Dwayne Johnson have a great personality and lots of talent, but he also does a great amount of philanthropic work which is part of the criteria for an immortal spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez said in a recent statement.

“We envision scores of photos being taken by his star by his fans.”

Throughout his lengthy career, Dwayne has continued to use his position for good. He attended the 2000 Democratic National Convention as part of a WWE campaign which aimed to influence the younger generations to vote, he founded the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation in 2006 which is a charity working with terminally ill and at-risk children, he and his ex-wife donated $1 million to the University of Miami to support the renovation of its football facilities in 2007, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

He is also known as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time and has so far starred in thirty-seven movies, as well as somehow finding the time to take part in six different musical projects.

Basically, what we’re saying is that Dwayne Johnson is an incredible superhuman who really deserves his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In fact, we’re surprised it has taken him this long to get one!

So if you’re reading this DJ, we love you and congratulations.
