Before the safety police get all uppity, this is not another case of a “celebrity too cool to wear a life vest.” This is clearly a posed, professionally-taken image for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Instagram account (it’s actually a pretty awesome thread. You should subscribe).
Captioned, “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads” with the hashtag “#GoldCoastRidin”, The Rock took to the waters of Australia’s Gold Coast in between days on the set of his newest big budget blockbuster “San Andreas” a earthquake-themed disaster flick titles after the titular Southern Californian fault line.
The shot of the 41-year-old aboard a Pearl White Yamaha FX HO was grabbed in Queensland a couple of weeks ago and has made the rounds on various media outlets. The former professional footabll player-turned professional wrestler-turned action movie star began filming a couple of weeks ago. The thriller follows a helicopter pilot who has to trek across the state to find his estranged daughter, due to hit theaters in 2015.
According to The Daily Mail, “This all follows a landmark year for the actor, as between Fast & Furious 6, Pain & Gain, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Snitch, he became 2013’s highest grossing Hollywood performer, with a combined total of $1.3billion in box office receipts.”
