The Daily Grind Video

Need a kick start to your Monday morning?

See what “The Rock” is cooking in the August 2013 issue of Essence magazine.

Chosen by readers as one of “the baddest brothers in the game,” wrestler-turned-movie-star Dwayne Johnson has had quite the success on the silver screen this year with his blockbusters G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Fast & Furious 6. But Essence took the time to get in touch with Dwayne’s off-screen romantic side that believes “engaging in good conversation” and “embracing the power of kissing” are the foundation of a healthy relationship.

Check out some excerpts below! 

On taking care of a woman:

When I say I’m going to take care of a woman, I don’t just mean physically or sexually or romantically. I’m going to take care of her emotionally and spiritually.

The way he uses his hands:

I want someone who can trust that my big hands are going to take care of them.

How divorce made him better:

I want to be a man who is truthful and who won’t let pride get in the way of my ripping myself open to my partner and saying, ‘Here I am. This is me.’ I feel there’s something powerful when a man reaches a point in his life when he can be completely vulnerable.

If he’s single, we’re interested!
