American actor Dwayne Johnson, 46, also known as ‘The Rock’ turned many heads when he recently arrived in the UK to film a spin-off Fast and Furious “Hobbs and Shaw”.
Apart from renting the sprawling Richmond Estates where actors Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Elton John and Fergie are reported to have stayed, he brought along his 40, 000lbs workout gym which he affectionately calls his ‘Iron Paradise’. The actor who sports a ribbed physique and is known for his regimental workouts wouldn’t go anywhere without his ‘Iron Paradise’ which comes complete with a full kitchen and requires hundreds of aides to set up.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may be living a plush life now, but he took time off to reflect over his struggles some 27 years ago. While celebrating Thanksgiving in London on Friday he posted the picture of a cooked turkey to his Instagram and added ‘Exactly 27 years ago on Thanksgiving while living in Tampa, FI we were so p*** broke, that we couldn’t even afford to buy a turkey’.
In his post, the actor also joked about how they would wish friends would invite them over for Thanksgiving and how when some friends phoned to wish them Happy Thanksgiving, they would quickly suggest a visit to celebrate Thanksgiving with those friends. Looking back now, Dwayne says ‘I’m weird this way but remembering s*** like this helps me live a better and more grateful life.’ The actor is making the most of his visit to the UK and has visited the West End to see Hamilton the Musical.
