He doesn’t take himself too seriously

Dwayne can certainly take a joke, especially one that’s pointed at him. Just look at this post about his younger self being imitated by Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum, and of course his signature pose.

Cheat meal goals

A man who works so hard in the gym certainly knows how to kick back and enjoy his food too. These series of pictures give us serious food envy and although we know we’d never be able to eat that much food, we can certainly drool over it.
