You may know him as ‘The Rock’, then again you may not, either way the wrestler/actor/ businessman has made quite the name for himself. It took hard work and compromise but he built up a career from scratch and successfully transitioned between ‘jobs’.
Just as we have mentioned before, with great success comes the need for everyone to be all up in your business, so we are here to dig up all the facts we can on The Rock’s statistics.
Dwayne Johnson’s Height
We have had a bodybuilder or two pass by, but none of them excites as much as Dwayne. Judging by his size, he is not an easy man to miss, but here is a brief description anyway. The star is multi racial (Samoan blood on his mother’s side and the black Nova Scotia on his father’s side), and for those of you that remember him with hair, it was dark brown, the same color as his eyes.
Now we have that out of the way, lets dive right into the topic of Johnson’s height. The actor is quite tall, in fact his whole frame is quite huge, since he’s obviously a body builder. He stands exquisitely tall at 6 feet 5 inches. That’s quite some height you’re packing there Dwayne. That means celebrities like Liam Hemsworth, Usain Bolt and Hulk Hogan all share Dwayne Johnson’s height.
Dwayne Johnson’s Weight
You most certainly will not be getting a two figure measurement on this one, with all those muscles he is packing, prepared to be blown away. Since he was a wrestler once, there is no doubt that his athletic body type is not a surprise to you, also he has the coveted inverted triangle body type and the bunches on muscles he packs on his arms make it even more definitive. The actor currently weighs 119 kilograms and we doubt he is complaining.
It is more than adequate, since he is very keen on building his muscles. The actors physique does greatly influence the roles he gets, and many-a-times he has had to step up his workout regimen for a movie role. Yes , people his muscles can get bulkier than they already are. When he was filming ‘Hercules’, the star had to crank it up a bit and he had one aim; to have viewers witness the most definitive on-screen interpretation of the Greek demi-god that they had ever seen.
On the topic he said, ‘For different roles my condition and training and diet does alter,” Johnson states. “Depending on the role, it will really dictate the type of training I do. For ‘Hercules,’ it was a 22-week diet, while for ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ it was about a 14-week diet, and for ‘Pain & Gain’ I wanted to come out looking bulky, big, and dangerous, so we adjusted accordingly.’
He added, ‘For ‘Hercules,’ I went for the demigod look: big and mean. When you’re playing a character like the son of Zeus, you only get one shot.’ So there you have it, he doesn’t just walk on set looking all hunky and muscular, it takes a whole lot of working out, in fact Johnson works out all year long.
The star is a man of a certain age and though he’s certainly used to it, he cannot work out with the same gusto he used to, since we are not weight experts, here is what he had to say on the topic, ‘When I hit 40, I really began to start training smarter, I’ve always tried to educate myself on my nutrition, about supplements, what I’m eating, when I’m eating, exercises, calories, and so on. Eventually I hired an awesome conditioning coach who helped me.’
Hint, hint, that person is his ex wife’s new husband.
Dwayne Johnson’s Body Measurements
Believe us when we say, there’s a whole lot of ‘man’ to measure. His chest is 50 inches, his waist is 35 inches, his biceps are 20 inches and his thighs are 31 inches. Needless to say, he’s the biggest we have ever had… to write about. The article is never completely done without some shoe size stats, so here are Dwayne’s.
He wears a US size 14, European size 47 and a UK size 13.5. Those are a pair of really big feet, we bet there’s a whole lot of custom made footwear in his life, thank heavens he can definitely afford it.
