Earlier this week Essence Magazine announced their August cover star. Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson poses on the cover grinning behind the words of the feature story: “Your Sexiest Brothers!” In a reader poll Dwayne was voted as one of the sexiest men of 2013. He shares the honor with Idris Elba, Boris Kodjoe, Lance Gross, and Michael Ealy.
In Dwayne’s interview he is asked about relationships. He drops this fantastic gem, “I want someone who can trust that my big hands are going to take care of them.”

One of the hardest subjects Dwayne dives into within his interview is his divorce from Dany Garcia Johnson. Together for over 17 years and married for 10 of those years, the high school sweethearts ended their marriage in 2007. In Essence, he speaks about how important it is for him and Dany to keep a good relationship as they co-parent their 11 year old daughter.
“Since our divorce, we’ve become pretty good at working together, and we are also raising our beautiful 11-year-old daughter, Simone. You know, you don’t sign up for a divorce when you get married, it’s very painful. But it’s taught me a great deal about myself.”
Dwayne is currently on location filming Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
