The Rock, From Strength to Strength

Dwayne Johnson, more famously known as The Rock, is the world's most bankable star. Athlete, WWF wrestler, TV star, movie star, and entrepreneur, it's hard to find something the man doesn't do. His friends and co-stars admit he's one the hardest working people in the business.

On a typical morning, Johnson wakes by around 5 a.m., when the house is quiet. “You can hear the birds, have your caffeine,” he says. “It’s beautiful.” He’ll spend an hour or two answering emails and handling paperwork, by which time his wife, Lauren Hashian, and their two daughters—Jasmine, 3, and Tiana Gia, 1—are usually up, and they all have breakfast. By 8:30 he’s at his private gym, the Iron Paradise, where he trains until 10, then he showers and goes to work—“wherever work is.” Ideally he’s home in time to have dinner and help get the girls to bed. 
“But when we start shooting,” Johnson says, “that’s when the hours get wonky. Everything becomes very surgical. My call time could be 10:57—it’s that detailed.”

I will readily admit to being a huge Rock fan. The guy is crushing it and this profile on the him is well worth a read.
