Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, is one of the most loved and successful Hollywood actors. Moreover, he is also the highest paid actor in Hollywood. He seems to enjoy travelling, but wherever he goes, it’s obvious that he carries beautiful Canada in his heart.
You might not know, but Dwayne Johnson is quite related to Canada. Not only did the semi-retired WWE superstar spent a lot of time in his youth playing football in the CFL and filming blockbuster movies, but he also has Canadian roots. Dwayne’s father, Rocky Johnson, was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia.
Thus, Dwayne doesn’t miss a chance to show how proud he is of his Canadian roots and how much he loves the country. Here are some instances where he has shown his strong love for Canada.
With Love from Calgary
Dwayne Johnson recently shared a photo of himself on the tarmac of the airport in Calgary. He expressed how he felt for being back on Alberta soil while reminiscing about fond memories of Calgary. His caption reads, ‘Defining memories. Wow. Landed last night here in Calgary, Alberta Canada to continue shooting JUMANJI. My brain was flooded with crazy experiences here. This is the city where me having only $7 bucks in my pocket all began. I have a deep reverence for this town ~ she shook me in the best possible way. Good to be back. Let’s get to work. #7buckaroos’
He Loves Canadian Creations
It was also recently that The Rock posted a picture on his Instagram account with one of Canada’s most debated culinary exports, Hawaiian pizza. The caption said, ‘Got the glorious text from my strength & conditioning coach @daverienzi that read “DJ, need a mid week carb up for your big scenes tomorrow. Eat a pizza and send me your pics in the morning” to which I responded – Watch. This. We’re having fun strategically manipulating my diet/body for shooting HOBBS & SHAW (my Fast & Furious spin-off film) and I love these midweek pizza carb ups like a drunk loves free peanuts. As for my pizza toppings – keep in mind, I’m the guy who likes to put tequila and brown sugar in my oatmeal, so pineapple on pizza is MY JAM – with ham.#PizzaCarbUp #StrategicManipulation #HobbsAndShaw #MyPizzaMyRules’
Vancouver Is One of His Favorite Cities
In a video he shared two years ago, he expressed his astonishment from the stunning Vancouver views. Vancouver is undoubtedly one of his favorite cities in the world. The caption for the video read, ‘Just got to show you this view, it is spectacular, one of my favourite cities in the world – Vancouver, Canada. Look, I’ve dropped my blood and sweat in this city, wrestled multiple matches in this city, shot big movies in this city.’
