50 Year Old Dwayne Johnson's Grey Beard Gives His Fans a Reality Check: 'Childhood hero's getting older'

People more often than not, tend to view their idols and icons in a light of immortal greatness. They look up to them as a distinct entity above everyone else around them, but in doing so, they forget that the other person too, is human. This is especially the case with celebrities and famous personalities and it is exactly what recently happened with The Rock’s fans.

Dwayne Johnson, for all his muscle and brawn, and remarkable achievements, is at the end of the day, a regular human being just like any of us. But it’s as if the former professional wrestler’s fans had completely overlooked that as the shocking reality of age and mortality made them realize that their “childhood hero” is, in fact, growing old.

Just a day ago, the Black Adam star took to his Instagram to share some beautiful insight on how instead of running after balance, he started finding it in the simplest of things life had to offer. But The Rock’s impromptu Q&A soon ended up transforming into a reality check for his fans as they noticed his greying beard and realized that their icon was aging.

And as the Hercules star chatted away during his midnight workout session from his “sweaty iron paradise,” fans filled the actor’s comment section with emotional messages and heartfelt remarks.

After witnessing Johnson’s wildly courageous journey through life, somewhere over the years, people probably started to believe that the former professional wrestler could beat anyone and anything, even life itself. But their hopes were doused with a splash of cold water when they noticed the Red Notice star’s grey beard, a clear indicator if there was any, that time is moving forward and he’s not immune to the transient nature of life.

While some fans expressed their gratitude for his words of wisdom, others remarked how age is slowly working its way through Johnson’s life. Take a look at some of the fan reactions:

“Childhood hero is getting older day by day.” 

“Legend is getting old.”

“Oh my goodness I haven’t seen you for a bit and your beard is turning grey. Time please slow down. Grey is lovely though. Take care!”

“Our ‘The Rock’ is getting old.” 

Regardless of how old he’s getting though, The Rock continues to awe his audience, something that’s conspicuous from all the love and support his fans shower him with.
