- Time Magazine has named The Rock as one of the 100 Most Influential People In the World. Rock posted the following this morning:

Evicted at 14, broke by 24, but regardless of how tough things got, I always felt if I worked harder and smarter than the next guy - I'd have a real shot at life. That's who I am. My DNA and still my daily code.

Thank you @TIME Magazine for selecting me as one of the 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL IN THE WORLD. I'm honored and privileged.

Most importantly, THANK YOU FANS worldwide from all cultures and walks of life who join me daily to put in the hard work and grind to take care of our families, chase our greatness and always havin' some fun along the way.

The best thing about making this list is tomorrow morning, I get to wake up, have my cup of unleaded, jump in my pick up truck, put in the hard work and do this dance all over again.

It's what we do. Our DNA.
