It’s hard not to like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. From his humble beginnings, he has risen to be one of the most loved celebrities of all time. And it’s not hard to see why…

Now, the star has found his way into the news once again – this time for ripping a metal gate off a brick wall because it wouldn’t open.

Keep scrolling to check it out.

And if you didn’t think so yet – his most recent escapade as a door ripping strong man will definitely change your mind!

Yes, even more than Keanu Reeves, who has been a contender for the top spot for a while now.

Well, we’ll prove it to you. As well as never backing down from a song request from his daughter, here are another 6 reasons why we just can’t get enough of him!

Dad to 3 girls, he is constantly spending as much time as he can with them, despite his busy schedule.

This isn’t the only time The Rock has been forced to sing by his daughters, and the latest video just proves the lengths he’ll go to make them smile.

Have you ever read something so heartwarming?

He spends a lot of time surprising his biggest fans and giving them probably the best experience of their lives.

And most of them would risk their lives to get a picture with their favorite celebrity. On multiple occasions, people have stopped traffic to try and get close to him!  

3. “You can feel him before you see him.”

In an article by Rolling Stone, director Brad Peyton said: “There’s a buzz in the air – a rumble. Maybe that rumble comes from the fact that he’s 250 pounds of muscle, I don’t know. But when he walks on set, there’s a definite sense that it’s game time.”

It might be a weird thing to love him for, but listen to this! The Rock has a daily diet that consists of 5,165 calories! This comes out to 7 meals a day! Keep scrolling to meet the guy who spent a month eating and training as much as The Rock every day…

His “Cheat Day” consists of: “Chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies with Oreo cookie ice cream, 1 slice of cheesecake, 1 big ass chocolate fudge cookie with salted caramel chips.” You could never devour this sugar infested meal like The Rock could. Props.

From epic storylines to fierce battles in the ring, The Rock has given us some of the best WWE matches in history.

His most dramatic rivalries include the likes of John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

This one tugs at the heart-strings quite a bit.

“At fourteen, I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed. This felt good. Merry Christmas, mom.” If you don’t love him already, then you need to go and see a doctor. I think you’re missing a heart.

You only have to watch one of his interviews to realize that, or take a look at his Instagram page, which is equally as uplifting…

And, in an 8-minute clip shared to his Instagram, the star directly called out Trump for his lack of compassionate and empowering leadership during these times.

“Where is our leader at this time?” he questions. “This time when our country is down on its knees begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain, begging and pleading with its arms out just wanting to be heard?”

“Where is our compassionate leader who is going to step up to our country who’s down on its knees and extend a hand and say, you stand up. Stand up with me. Stand up with me, because I got you,” Johnson said. “I got you, I hear you, I’m listening to you.”

Of course all lives matter. Every single one,” he said. “All lives matter because we, as Americans, we believe in inclusivity, we believe in acceptance, we believe in human rights. We believe in equality for all. “But in this moment right now, this defining, pivotal, explosive moment where our country is down on its knees — the floorboards of our country are becoming unhinged — in this moment, we must say the words black lives matter,” he continued. We must say it because so many people believe that they don’t … or at least not as much as white lives,” he added.

But now Johnson is in the news for a much more light-hearted reason.

Perhaps you didn’t notice it, but The Rock is a pretty large and muscular fellow – and I’d take a wild guess and say he’s fairly strong.

Well he’s stronger than a metal gate if this story is anything to go by…

Apparently there was a technical problem with the gate caused by ‘severe storms’ so The Rock called a technician but they couldn’t come round right away.

And by that, he means he literally ripped the gate from the wall. More specifically, The Rock explained:
I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared.” Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work.

I certainly know that I couldn’t. I struggle to open my door with the key in my hand most nights.
