The essence of Thanksgiving was captured by many celebrities on Instagram, including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who posted a touching, smiling photo of what he calls his “big, extended, blended, slightly crazy, lovely, grateful ohana.” The caption, however, reveals a deeper meaning behind the 45-year-old celebrity’s Thanksgiving meal and denotes poverty struggles of his family in his childhood.
Johnson wrote in his post that his mom had pointed out earlier that day that there had been time back in ’87 when they couldn’t even afford Thanksgiving dinner and when she had been praying someone would invite them over to their house to eat. “We were in a tough spot back then, but we got (through) it,” The Rock wrote in his post.
One can conclude that “The Rock” had gone through hard times before he became what he is today, and that is one of the most recognizable men in Hollywood. He got this nickname because of his professional wrestling success.
In spite of his off-screen and on-screen acknowledgments, the “Baywatch” star keeps being modest and grateful for quality time with his family.
This is how Johnson described this special meal: “After we bowed our heads in prayer, we went around the table and everyone shared what they were thankful for. Beautiful seeing and listening to everyone speak from their heart. Tears, laughter and boundless gratitude.”
He continued in a humorous way writing that he was a bit surprised that no one expressed how thankful they were that the hottest man alive was sitting at the table.
It was last week that “The Voice” judge Blake Shelton succeeded Johnson as the best looking man alive, but the truth is that good looks don’t fade with a changing title, as the wrestler-turned-actor would say. It’s just his way of expressing gratitude during the holiday season along with some humor, which he does in a lovely way.
After we bowed our heads in prayer, we went around the table and everyone shared what they were thankful for. Beautiful seeing and listening to everyone speak from their heart. Tears, laughter and boundless gratitude. Personally, I’m a little surprised no one expressed how thankful they were that THE Sexiest Man Alive (I refuse to relinquish my title to Blake Shelton or any man) was sitting at the table. I didn’t want to be a dick and interrupt the prayer, but at some point someones gotta address the elephant in the room. Jokes aside, it was a very special Thanksgiving. As my mom pointed out earlier in the day, there was a time back in ‘87 when we couldn’t even afford Thanksgiving dinner and was praying someone would invite us over their house to eat. We were in a tough spot back then, but we got thru it. And here we are today. One big, extended, blended, slightly crazy, loving, grateful ohana. #sib ❤️🥁💫
