Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is something of a hero for his avid — and ever-growing — fan base. The former wrestler turned 2016’s highest-paid actor in Hollywood helms a number of film franchises including the upcoming Jumanji and Baywatch reboots, while also playing crowd favorite roles in action blockbusters like the Fast and the Furious. (Oh, and there was that time he voiced a literal god for Disney’s Moana.)

But Johnson keeps busy offscreen, too. Whether he’s shilling athletic apparel, hitting the gym religiously, or helping raise his two daughters, he maintains a very active social media presence.

His message throughout — that hard work, gratitude, and being a standup citizen will pay off — is a mantra that his admirers live by. He just turned 45, but if this list is any indication, he’s only beginning to hit his groove.

With more than 85 million Instagram followers, 58 million Facebook fans, and 11 million Twitter followers, he’s one of the most internet-popular celebrities of our era. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the standout moments in recent years that have made the star so beloved by fans around the world.
