Actor and ex-pro wrestler Dwayne Johnson knows a thing or two about making a splashy entrance. And he certainly didn’t disappoint when he showed up at last night’s Los Angeles premiere of 'Hercules,' which took place at the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Though the event featured several big-name guests — including Mariah Carey, Eddie Murphy and girlfriend Paige Butcher, and Kylie Minogue — all eyes were on the 42-year old Johnson as he stepped out on the red carpet with his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian. The two have been dating for several years, reportedly after the then-married actor met the Massachusetts native while filming his 2007 sports-comedy 'The Game Plan.' That relationship, some speculate, led to Johnson’s 2008 divorce from wife Dany Garcia, with whom Johnson has a 12-year-old daughter, Simone. That divorce, Johnson told 'The Hollywood Reporter' earlier this year, sent the actor into a deep depression: “Once I manned up and became accountable for the mess I was in, that’s when it all hit me,”
he told THR. “What kind of dad does this make me? What kind of man will I now become? Failing at marriage and as a husband was a heavy thing, and divorce had that special way of knocking me on my ass.” At last night’s premiere, though, Johnson and Hashian — whose only other red-carpet appearance was at the opening for last year's 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' — were all smiles. Maybe the next step for the Rock and his girlfriend is…a rock?
