The Rock has been cooking up quite the career — make that careers — for the past 15 years. We can smell all that success over here. From WWE King to big screen bully, Dwayne Johnson has become so much more than “The Rock.” Although we can’t help but remember trying to lift our eyebrows just like he did in the ring. Since his days as a champion college football player, Dwayne has maintained a perfect physique, one we’ve gotten to see him show off outside of the ring in his early film projects, like The Mummy Returns, family fare like Tooth Fairy and soon enough in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Along with actor and world heavyweight champion, Johnson added author to his resume in 2002 with his New York Times best-selling autobiography, The Rock Says…, co-written with Joe Layden. To wish The Rock a big happy birthday, we’re celebrating his big 4-0 with a look through his best years. And don’t forget to vote for him in our Summer Movies Hottest Heroes poll!
