Blood & sweat.
Phenomenal work week on our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
Rehearsing with my co-star and one of Asia's greatest actors @thechinhan. The all glass floor we're walking on represents the top of the world's tallest skyscraper - below us will be a 3500ft drop, in the city of Hong Kong.
Physically/emotionally draining role for this original concept of a film. Humbling as well.
More to come. Onward. #SkyscraperMovie
Alright alright.. when mama's and their little babies are waiting to meet me after work, I'll keep my a**hole persona at bay.
Truth is, this stuff is always the best part of fame. Good to meet ya Iliana & Maddox! #SkyscraperMovie #LateNightLuv #Vancouver
I'm just sick of it. But I'm a sucker when babies have been waiting for hours. 😉 Long work days/nights but fans have a way of easing the fatigue. #SkyscraperMovie #LateNightLuv
Driven. Loyal. The sexy part all depends on whether I've eaten my carbs.
SEASON FINALE TOMORROW. Come rock with us one final time. #SFS #BALLERS 10pm @HBO 🔥
Power of choice.
Think about this one for a second.... @nicksanto534 was born with one arm and no legs. In his mind, there's nothing he can't do... and he's right. He's right because he does everything he sets his mind to. Competed as an amateur wrestler, motivational speaker, trains like a beast and today (Sat 9/23) he competes in his first bodybuilding contest.
We chatted after my workout about the power of choice. He said, I could've been pissed at the world for being born like this, but instead I choose to live life to the fullest, be happy and crush everything I put my mind to and hopefully, I can inspire people to do the same.
Life deals us cards on a daily basis, but we always get to decide how we're gonna play 'em.
Keep crushing life my man and inspiring all those around you.
And thank you for helping frame my perspective on life just a little bit more.
Ball in. Or nothing.
SEASON FINALE this Sunday. As always, THANK YOU for rockin' with us and makin' us a very successful series on @HBO.
#Ballers #SeasonFinale SUNDAY 10pm.
Our mana (spirit) is strong.
Intense workouts are part of my daily process. I need the intensity to anchor my day, so the last thing I want is to be interrupted... but, for THIS MAN, I will gladly stop my workout, remove my headphones and respectfully remove my hat so I can shake hands and hug @c.t.ali.fletcher.
I started tracking CT years ago. Quietly following him in the shadows and admiring the impact he's had on so many people's lives. About a year ago I watched one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen, about his life called #MyMagnificentObession. In the doc, I was specifically moved by the relationship he had with his dad. When I shared this with CT, he then proceeds to tell me how much my dad (Rocky Johnson) influenced him growing up. Crazy how life comes full circle that way.
CT exemplifies what it means to overcome the odds and work so intensely hard at something, it becomes an obsession. But CT's real power, will always be the gratitude and humility he has in his heart.
Life is crazy and busy for all of us, but when we can fuel it with a lil' gratitude and humility - life becomes that much better.
Pleasure to meet you brother, thank you for the inspiration and as always.. ISYMFS. 💪🏾 (keep kickin' ass Samson and carrying on that family tradition)
Just stoppin' by to deliver some early CHRISTMAS joy.
And by joy, I mean the the hangry crocodile is seconds away from devouring his bite size chocolate snack named Kevin Hart. Yum.
Our new @jumanjimovie poster.
Love, Dwanta Claus 🎅🏾
Ladies and gentlemen and kids of all ages..
This CHRISTMAS the hottest game of the holiday season isn't one you play... it's one that plays YOU.
Here's the 60 second cut down of the NEW @JumanjiMovie spot. * WATCH FULL trailer in my bio.
BEWARE: this game will always find a way to be played. #Jumanji
Love, Dwanta Claus 🎅🏾
** UPDATE: just heard Matt is starting his chemo TODAY (tues Sept 19th). Stay strong brother. You got this.
Rain ain't stoppin' this lil' ol package of sunshine.
NYC Firefighter, Matt McDevitt, we now inspire each other, but more importantly congrats to you and your wife, Jackie on your new baby boy. There's no role you'll ever play that's greater than "father". I know you got a fight ahead of ya with chemo and radiation so stay strong brother and eventually you gotta take that shirt off dude. Sweat turns to stink.
Thank you for being a fan. Thank you for being a bad ass inspiration.
#FirstResponders #NYCFirefighters #WelcomeBabyJamesMichael 🤙🏾
A lil' teaser before our worldwide trailer debut this WEDNESDAY. The game continues, but this time it plays YOU.
If you're down, then just get on my back.. #JUMANJI
Only 2 EPISODES left of our record setting season of #Ballers.
As always, THANK YOU for rockin' with us.
TONIGHT 10pm on @HBO
Wheels up. 🤙🏾 Dreams ain't just for dreamers.
Another solid work week in Vancouver for #SkyscraperMovie and now off to Vegas for #TheOlympia. Can't wait to see the crowd, feel their energy and personally crown the 2017 Mr. Olympia.
@sevenbucksds @sevenbucksprod #OlympiaTakeover #HardestWorkersInTheRoom
To survive, everything must evolve and grow.
Great to see our sport evolve to the Classic Physique Division.
This division is a throw back and homage to my favorite bodybuilders as a kid from Frank Zane to Lee Haney to the Austrian Oak himself, Arnold.
As my good bud Steve Weinberger says, thru evolution our sport's only getting bigger and better.
Good luck this weekend boys and leave it all on the stage.
I'll be at the waffle truck with the cheat meals. Link in bio.

#1 for 10 weeks. THANK YOU guys.
And a huge shout out to my POWERFUL & SEXY thumbs 🌎 😉👍🏾
Best part about this is that 5yrs ago studios and businesses were trying to figure out just how valuable social media was to a company's bottom line. Does it truly add revenue$?
Today it's one our of biggest assets in global advertising and marketing, but more important, for me -- the most important platform I have to be connected to people in the most authentic way possible.
Very powerful tool. Be smart with how you use your voice. And always save room for ice cream 🍦
Many productive meetings and big business deals have been sealed with a handshake at my GSD (Get Shit Done) table that's inside my trailer.
This table holds a lot of great mana (spirit/power) and energy. And if these wood slabs could talk... well it's best they can't talk for national security purposes.
Great shot by @sevenbucksprod President @hhgarcia41 capturing our post meeting aftermath.
#SecretWeapon #GSDTable #LetsGetShitDone ✔️
Chalked up and heavily calloused on one of my fav holidays - Labor Day. Cheers to always putting in the hard work with our two hands.
My hands may be f*cked up, calloused and clearly super sexy, but when I shake your hand and look you in the eye and commit; it's stronger than any labor contract we could sign. I'm old school that way.
Cheers to the working men and women today. Enjoy your families.

Ladies and gentlemen, I finally met this real life 10yr old hero, Jacob O'Connor. He rescued his 2yr old brother after finding him facedown in their pool.
I said, not only do I shake hands, but when I meet heroic kids, I give hugs.. now get in here. Despite the fact I looked like 9 ways of hell, battered and bloodied from my scenes, Jacob reluctantly, gave me a hug. 😂🤙🏾. A very special day we had on our #Skyscraper set. #JacobOConnor #Hero
🎈 I saw an early screening of IT a few months ago and it instantly became one of my all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time.
Not only does it redefine the horror genre, but it's so layered, smart and brilliantly scary.
Congrats to the awesome young cast aka The Losers Club for killing their performances. To Bill Skarsgard for delivering an iconic performance as Pennywise. And to the entire crew and my good buds at Warner Bros/New Line.
And most of all congrats to director, Andy Muschietti for making such a defining film. You knocked it outta the f*cking park!
Great talking with you man and we're gonna have some fun working together down the road.
As a huge fan of the horror genre, this one's special.
Have you fully recovered @simonegjohnson? 😉
#IT Congrats David Katzenberg you handsome MF!
Consistent hard work gains success and just because something's never been done, doesn't mean it can't be done. #RaiseTheBar #YOUvsYOU #SlideIntoYourComments #InANonCreepyWay;)
Getting some killer training accomplished up here in Canada. I travel with this entire hardcore gym to every location I shoot in because (for me) it's the only way this lead dog eats.
I'm training in the new #ProjectRock USDNA @underarmour gear that's inspired by the men and women of our US MILITARY. Including these new bad ass Desert Sand #RockDelta training shoes. I train for months in all our new gear before it reaches your hands, so you know it's the real deal.
Thanks as always for the inspired #ProjectRock support.

New collection drops this November
As per yoosh with fans, I'll break the ice and talk some shit. Put my truck in park, get out, take pictures, cause a traffic jam, say my goodbyes and head on down the road.
The girl who started singing to me, drove 7hrs to meet me. After we took a pic, I gave her a hug and she started crying and said she'll never forget this moment for the rest of her life. She actually compared it to a story Ive told about when I met Muhammad Ali years ago. Beautiful moment. Thank you @ayatt7 for the words.
Gotta say stuff like this will always be the best part of being famous. And free waffles.
Good to meet you ladies. Waffles on me ~ DJ
Bloody and battered w/ my director @rawsonthurber between takes.
WEEK 3 complete of our action thriller #SKYSCRAPER.
This is my second film with Rawson putting my trust in his hands. A very smart, ambitious, extremely focused and methodical guy who wants to deliver a f*cking intensely breathtaking and epic film for the fans.
Our story takes place in China. In the penthouse of the world's tallest skyscraper... on fire.
More details to come down the road. Until then, WEEK 3 complete and we'll just keep on keepin' on.
Surprise to my @laurenhashianofficial! 🎊🎉🎈👏🏾 HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a very special, beloved, one of a kind girl.
I had my trailer decorated as a surprise when she walked in as we sang some happy birthday.. But why stop there when we can have mo fun... as she was getting this trailer surprise, I had a crew go to our house and decorate so when she got home she was surprised yet again.
We celebrated all weekend and to cap it off our lovely mamas performed a beautiful Polynesian hula for the honored birthday girl.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE, family, friends and all who was involved in creating such a phenomenal birthday weekend for Lauren. Amazing and so cool to see all the endless love that everyone has for this girl.
Happy Birthday darlin' darlin'! I love you and you already know, but it's appropriate I say it again, I'm a grateful man you were born.
Now excuse me while I go destroy the rest of your cake. (liwdyn;)
YM aka the surprise 👑
Just shot a PSA for Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Thank you to everyone involved. 🙏🏾
Years ago me and my family survived Hurricane Andrew, a devastating category 5 storm that wiped us out down in South Florida.
But like our community we came back stronger, because there are no strangers in the wake of a hurricane. No political parties, no pettiness and no agendas. Just people helping other people get back on their feet.
Thanks to everyone involved in shooting this PSA and thanks to everyone who donated and who's lending a hand.
Our family and friends are all boarded up in their homes in south Florida and throughout the state, bracing for what Hurricane Irma decides to deliver.
Click the link in my bio to donate, then tune in this TUESDAY on ABC, CBS, CMT, FOX and NBC. #HandInHand
Surprise! (mama shedding a few happy tears for her boys)
I told Jacob and his brother Gavin that when kids visit my movie sets, it's like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory because children get to eat all the chocolate and sweets they want and the best part is...IT'S ALL FREE.
Well someone has to pay for it, but it ain't me or the kids lol.
Thank you to our entire #Skyscraper crew for all doing their part to make this visit special for this family.
#OnSet #RockWonka #OConnorFamily #SugarRush🍫
WEEK 3 complete of our hostage action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
The most physically and emotionally daunting role of my career. Grateful to push the limits.
The Academy Award winning master Robert Elswit ("There Will Be Blood") operating the camera.
A challenging film. A talented crew.
