Dewayne Johnson Covers Giant Magazine

Former WWE superstar now turned actor Dewayne Johnson is featured on this month’s issue of Giant Magazine. Johnson is slated to appear in the upcoming Disney fantasy flick Race To Witch Mountain. In the March 2009 issue of Giant, Dewayne opens up about his childhood, and his transition from wrestler to one of the top leading men in Hollywood.

Excerpts from the magazine:

I knew eventually I was going to be billed as ‘Dwayne Johnson,’ but we did it gradually,” he recounts later over lunch. “It felt right to me because The Rock was a character I loved….I thought, ‘If I’m going to get to “Dwayne Johnson,” we’ll just let it happen naturally.’

“People ask if I mind if they call me The Rock,” he adds with a flash of his trademark grin. “There’s no visceral reaction for me that ‘No, you can’t.’ The Rock is a nickname, and people call me that all the time, and it’s fine. It’s a damn cool nickname, too.”

I personally think that this is a great photo shoot-his swagger is undeniable. In my opinion he embodies the look of what the everyday man should be. Designers used for this particular photo shoot were Versace, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Penerai ,Tom Ford, and Yves St.Laurent. Race To Witch Mountain opens in theaters March 13th.

    Greetings Dewayne: I was fired by a man named Dewayne Johnson, but he refers to himself as a stone since you are the rock. You see I was working at our local ( Mishawaka, Indiana ) Sam’s Club for almost 2 years when back in June of 2009 I was fired for waiting on a customer in the cafe and I was trying to be humorous and sang the line “Yes we have no banana’s, we have no banana’s today”, but how can I help you? He was in line waiting to be served , got to the counter and still undecided what he wanted, that’s when I broke into humor. He was insulted, went to another co-worker to complain, an assistant manager was called in, she in turned called the general manager who happens to be Dewayne Johnson. Now all of these people were black and I am white. Final line I got fired. This song goes back to 1920 when Irving Cohen wrote it, broadway show in 1923. Now in 1936 France and Germany used this tune to build their warchest of funds for the war. This day and age it is so hard to believe I got fired for this. I am a very big fan of your’s so just venting anger, and letting you know that not always is the name Dewayne Johnson liked.
