Meet Milton: The Man Who Inspires Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Posted in People on Sunday, February 03, 2013.

To the layman, it would have appeared to be the worst premiere in the film career of the world’s biggest Hollywood star–Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

After all, he is accustomed to red carpeted affairs surrounded by dozens of paparazzi and hundreds of adoring fans screaming for him to show them his trademark pearly white smile as camera flashes pop all around him. On this night, however, Dwayne Johnson’s movie premiere was on the opposite end of that spectrum.

The film was just as low budget as the theatre setup; it was cell phone footage that had been blown up a few sizes too large to fit the movie screen.

If not for the fact that he has a wife and son, it would be hard to convince any overtly macho, closed-minded man that Stein is straight. However, while behind my macho exterior lies a little Nancy, behind Stein’s Nancy exterior lays a macho man. In fact, Stein may be the most macho man in America. READ MORE
