The Rock is now a full-fledged movie star. He overflows with charisma.

Dwayne Johnson came out for the premiere of Hercules last night, posing often for photographers at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.

This came as no surprise, of course. Johnson is the star of the movie and all.

But the WWE star-turned-actor was accompanied for the event by Lauren Hashian, as Johnson's long-time girlfriend made a rare public appearance.

Johnson met Hashian while filming The Game Plan in 2007. He divorced wife Dany Garcia a year later, with many speculating that an affair with Hashian was to blame.

But Johnson and Garcia remain close, with the latter even working alongside her ex-husband on his movie career, so whatever transpired appears to have been long forgotten by both sides.

Click through photos of Johnson and Hashian at this Herculean premeire now:

You've gotta hustle for the muscle, people.

Such was the valuable lesson passed along to Tonight Show viewers on Monday evening, courtesy of The Fungo Brothers, a pair of workout fiends from decades past who look eerily similar to Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallon.

In a pair of helpful workout videos, mop-topped siblings Jeff and Tad asked folks if they wanna run faster via glutes that are “harder than plaster” and whether they want to feel "burn between the legs."

"If you wanna get packed and stacked, you've gotta Jack it," Jeff said of an invention called The Jack Weight, with Tad adding:

"You've gotta Jack it in the morning. You can Jack it in the afternoon. Oh, god, and then you can even Jack it all night."

Wait... are we still talking about exercise? Watch the sweat-filled footage now:

After seeing his throwback '90s fanny pack photo, you'd think The Rock couldn't possibly produce an online encore that would match such greatness.

He came pretty hard close.

The star of the upcoming Hercules movie (real name Dwayne Johnson) gave fans a behind the scenes look at one of the tasks before the mythical hero:

Patty cake.

The Rock, Patty Cake

On the set of the forthcoming film, the 42-year-old Rock encountered what seemed to be a normal toddler while donning his full Hercules regalia.

Was the youngster intimidated?

Hardly. She challenged him to a game of patty cake, throwing down the gauntlet and challenging the legendary Hercules to compete for the glory. 

Like any true hero, Johnson obliged.

As he later told his followers while posting the above shot, "When a two-year-old asks Hercules to play patty cake on set … well … he plays patty cake."

Nothing more needs to be said.

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the top-earning actors in Hollywood, and you may find yourself astonished not only by the stars who took the top two spots, but also by the staggering amount some A-listers pulled in this past year. 

Amazingly, the highest paid actor of 2013 has managed to do it again, as Robert Downey, Jr. took home a cool $75 million thanks to his ongoing role as Tony Stark/Iron Man. 

Mark Wahlberg
The former Marky Mark earned $32 million in the past year, thanks to roles in films like Lone Survivor and Pain & Gain.

Downey played hardball before signing on to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's reportedly been rewarded with his biggest pay day to date.

And just how big has Marvel's tent pole franchise become? The number five spot on the list is none other than Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who - despite being paid about half what Downey pulled in last year - still took home a not-too-shabby $39 mill.

But while the actors in the gallery above certainly aren't hurting, the movie industry ain't what it used to be and of all the past year's top earning actors, only RDJ (just barely) cracked the top 10 on Forbes' 2014 list of the most powerful entertainers.

Happy Throwback Thursday, Internet users!

Earlier today, we posted what many consider to be one of the greatest old pictures in the history of camera use, as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson posed in 1990s garb that included a fanny pack.

It's an amazing image, and it kicks off the following old school photo gallery, which includes shots of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian as kids; Julianne Hough singing an Avril Lavigne song; and Justin and Selena before they broke up.... got back together... and then broke up again.

Go back in time with these stars and ask yourself: Were these really the good ol' days?

Did you smell what The Rock cooked up this week, THGers?

No? It's hilarity!!!

Days ahead of Throwback Thursday, a shot of Dwayne “The Rock" Johnson surfaced on Reddit, one that was apparently snapped in 1997... and which is totally amazing!

It’s hard to determine the best aspect of this picture: could it be the turtleneck? The jewelry? The haircut?

All good options, but all incorrect. The answer, clearly, is the fanny pack. Yes, folks, The Rock is wearing a fanny pack.

Ogle this incredible image below and then click through throwback pics of Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and other stars in the following gallery:

A FANNY PACK!!!

Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Call him Dwayne Johnson. Call him The Rock.

Just be sure to call him today and send in your best wishes... because it's this superstar's birthday!

Indeed, The Rock is now 41 years old - and it's safe to say he's already had a winning 2013.

He wrestled in the main event at Wrestlemania 29. He starred in Pain & Gain, this weekend's number-one box office hit. He'll appear this summer in Fast & Furious 6.

Forget Amanda Bynes. This has been The Year of Dwayne Johnson!

Pain and Gain is like if a Coen Brothers movie and a Scorsese movie had a baby and that baby disappointed its parents and went into porn.

At its core, the film is about a trio of hapless men just trying to get ahead in life, but who end up getting in way over their heads.

Pain and Gain Poster

The difference between Pain and Gain and every Coen Brothers movie with that premise is that Michael Bay’s hapless men aren’t timid and pathetic.

They’re not looking for recompense or justice. They’re just greedy meatheads.

It will take a lot more than a few pesky hernias to keep Dwayne Johnson down.

The WWE star/actor is at home today following surgery to repair a trio of tears in his abdomen, injuries he reportedly suffered during his Wrestlemania 29 title match against John Cena.

Based on the photo he Tweeted prior to being wheeled in for the procedure, however, it doesn't appear as if Johnson was too worried about the outcome:

Johnson was forced to miss the Los Angeles premiere of his new film, Pain and Gain, as a result of the surgery. It opens on Friday.

From there, the G.I. Joe star will continue to dominate the box office with Fast & Furious 6 on May 24.
