After recently being praised for gifting an old friend with a new Ford F-150 pickup truck as a way of thanking him for the hospitality he showed was a teenager, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is feeling honored after he was named by The Profile as the “Most Likable Person in the World.” In the article, writer Polina Marinova details how Johnson came to be the highest-paid actor in Hollywood as well as one of the most popular and well-liked people on the planet. Sharing an image of the profile on Instagram. Johnson explains how important it is to be kind to others, stressing that life is a lot easier that way. From the post:
“From being called a ‘big complicated a**hole’ at 15yrs old (due to fighting that led to suspension) to now being called ‘the most likable person in the world’… hey I made a little progress. Big mahalo to writer, Polina Marinova for writing this profile. Thanks for taking the time as this was a nice surprise to read,” says The Rock.
“True story – while I was ‘serving my time’ on my two week school suspension – I heard a quote that would actually help shape the rest of my life, perspective and work ethic – It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice. And plus life is soooo much easier when you’re not an a**hole.”
In response, some of Johnson’s famous pals have commented on the post. Backing up his claims that he really is a person who’s impossible not to love. “I concur,” writes Josh Brolin from his official Instagram account. Jamie Foxx also adds, “Well deserved.” WWE wrestler Natalya Neidhart also chimed in with a “Hell Ya.”
