Dan Bilzerian Says It Is “Not Healthy” To Be As Big As The Rock

Dan Bilzerian believes The Rock is not being genuine in his public life.

Dan Bilzerian is known for living an extravagant lifestyle that features a massive social media presence where he shows off his latest escapades. The “King of Instagram” has 32.8 million followers on the app where he is not shy about sharing his lifestyle and yes — that includes weight lifting. Recently, Bilzerian had some interesting opinions to share about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Bilzerian is interested in fitness and has kept himself in tremendous shape. He had some choice words to say about individuals entering their 50’s in terms of mass they are carrying. Bilzerian joined YouTuber Derek on More Plates More Dates to discuss the topic.

“It’s unhealthy to sustain that level of mass. They show people are giants, like basketball players. It’s just not healthy to be that big,” Dan Bilzerian said of The Rock.

The Rock is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood today. His career began to take off when he was with the WWE. He quickly rose to the top of professional wrestling before leaving to pursue a career on the big screen. This has helped The Rock become an influential figure in many areas.

Maybe more than anything, The Rock is known for his massive frame. He is a former football player and at 6-foot-5, The Rock still carries a lot of muscle. Also, Dan Bilzerian feels like Johnson is too famous or rich to be genuine in his public life.

“I do whatever the f**k I want. He does not. Unless like he is playing this character for ever is what he wants. I don’t think that’s what he wants,” Bilzerian said.

The thing I don’t like about The Rock is I don’t feel like he gets to be authentic.”

It is no secret that Dan Bilzerian has a history of doing what he wants. He is a professional poker player that made a nice chunk of change on the tables but is more known for his life outside of the casino.

This was Bilzerian’s biggest critique of The Rock. Sometimes, a public figure has to watch what he or she says because of the uproar it might cause.

“You’re not hearing what he wants to say, you’re hearing what his teams put together,” Bilzerian said of The Rock.

These were some interesting comments coming from one public figure to another. While he is not as big as The Rock, in size or status, Bilzerian seems to be discussing how hard it is for some to live in this light. Bilzerian does not attack The Rock’s character or personality within his comments.

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars that there is today. It is not easy but he still finds a way to inspire others and give back to his communities. There is no doubt that The Rock tries to be the best version of himself as much as he can.
