“Today we’re shooting the cover of Rolling Stones magazine we’re out here in the beautiful mountains of California and it should be a great day.” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is Hollywood’s most bankable star. He’d made a splashy entrance in Hollywood, earning $5 million for his first starring role, in 2002’s The Scorpion King. But after a string of slightly embarrassing kids’ movies, it seemed he might be done.
“My career was a little shaky – really shaky,” he says. “Returning to wrestling wasn’t an option, because I didn’t want to go back deemed a failure. So I’m making these movies, my third family movie in a row, which is often considered career suicide for someone who started in the world of action. Like, ‘Check, please – you’re done.”

“I don’t like sad endings,” continued Johnson. “Life brings sh*t – I don’t want it in my movies. I want to feel great.” Johnson called a meeting with his agents and said he had a plan.

Pretty soon he had new agents. But 10 years later, what kind of career does he have? Will Smith’s, only different and bigger.
