- The Rock's daughter Simone Johnson began her duties as the first-ever Golden Globes Ambassador today as nominations for the 75th Golden Globes were announced. The role was previously referred to as Miss or Mr. Golden Globe.
Simone received a lot of attention from the wrestling community several weeks back when the role was announced as she commented on what she loves about the business, revealing that she's thought about pursuing a career as a pro wrestler:
"It's a sport that is unlike anything else in the world. There's just a certain amount of passion that every move and match requires, and that's so admirable. It's definitely something I've thought about and want to pursue."
The former WWE Champion wrote the following on the new gig for his daughter:
What a morning for our ohana!
