You know, Dwayne Johnson has come a long way since he was a wrestler running around in underwear and constantly asking if you can smell what he was cooking.
I always kinda figured he was always asking that because he lived in an apartment and didn’t want to offend his fellow tenants with the smell of his food.
Of course, you know that The Rock has starred in a metric tonne of movies over the last decade and a half. You may also be aware that he recently released The Rock Clock, a motivational alarm clock app that has no snooze button and lets you wake up to motivational messages or songs from The Rock himself.
What you may NOT know about him (but won’t come as much of a surprise at all) is that he hasn’t eaten any candy – not a piece – since 1989. Jimmy Fallon found that out on The Tonight Show and decided to break his streak. Watch:
I mean, The Rock is obviously a health freak and jacked beyond imagination, so it’s not THAT much of a stretch to imagine he’d abstained from candy for 27 or so years. It’s still pretty mind boggling, because I’ve eaten a decent amount of candy even in the last 27 hours… Mind you, I’m a bit of a fat kid at heart so that all makes sense.
I do get the impression, from another segment Fallon and Johnson did during the show, that maybe he and I aren’t that different after all. I mean, he sure seemed like an awkward guy at his prom…
It’s kinda like looking into a mirror that shows me my past…
Now here’s a question for you: If you hadn’t eaten candy in 27 years, what would be the first thing you ate to break that streak? Tell me in the comments!
