Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared a picture of his beautiful family on Instagram, to illustrate what the holiday spirit meant for him.

"As my mom pointed out earlier in the day, there was a time back in '87 when we couldn't even afford Thanksgiving dinner and was praying someone would invite us over their house to eat," he wrote.

"We were in a tough spot back then, but we got thru it," he added.

"And here we are today. One big, extended, blended, slightly crazy, loving, grateful ohana."

The former WWE superstar, who cut his teeth on the regional pro wrestling circuit (USWA etc) has been named Forbes second highest paid actor of the year, having earned $65m in 2017.

The 45-year-old star is known for his role in the Fast And Furious franchise and other hits including Baywatch and the upcoming Jumanji reboot. He's also looking to get up Hobb's, an offshoot from the Fast franchise, which is getting a mixed reaction from his former co stars.

He said it was "beautiful seeing and listening to everyone speak from their heart" this year during Thanksgiving dinner, traditional holiday in the US.

In the post, Johnson also joked about being dethroned as People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive by country singer and TV star Blake Shelton.

Johnson, who came top last year, said: "Personally, I'm a little surprised no one expressed how thankful they were that THE Sexiest Man Alive (I refuse to relinquish my title to Blake Shelton or any man) was sitting at the table".

"I didn't want to be a d*** and interrupt the prayer," he said

"But at some point someones gotta address the elephant in the room."

Mr. Johnson is as nice in person to fans and news media as he comes across on television and the big screen, as I have experienced in person, having spoke to 'The Great One' at a movie premier in Sydney.
