When you think of Dwayne Johnson you think of muscles so big they could have their own postcode, but you also think ‘bald shaved head‘ because it’s a look as strong as his biceps.
And, after years of speculation, the man otherwise known as The Rock publicly admitted that he prefers his scalp naked and chose to shave it off.
With typical self-deprecation and good humour, he Tweeted this in 2017: “I’m not bald because I went bald. I’m bald because my hair is a cross between an afro and hair from a Lama’s [sic] ball sac.”
Now MFH has never seen a Llama’s privates, but did a Google search of Dwayne’s natural hair. And though there’s a myriad of regrettable 80s and 90s haircuts back in the day (the curse of any Gen Xer), MFH think he’s talking bollocks about his barnet and Llamas balls.
If you’re debating going for the Great Shave, know this: being bald hasn’t harmed The Rock’s bank balance either – he was the highest paid actor on the Forbes list of celebrity earners for 2020.
