The Rock's daughter, Simone Garcia Johnson, on being Golden Globe Ambassador and dad's fanny pack photo

What’s it like being the daughter of entertainment icon Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson? That’s the question everyone has been wanting to know since his 16-year-old daughter, Simone Garcia Johnson, was named the first ever 2018 Golden Globe Ambassador (previously known as Miss Golden Globe).

Her response is just downright adorable. “I always think that he’s my dad, just a lot of people know who he is, but at the end of the day, he’s still my dad.” Of course, her famous pops is totally proud. His advice for the big night? “Just live in the moment and have fun.”

Johnson also revealed that Baywatch is her favorite movie of her dad’s, and also shared her opinion of that infamous 1994 photo in which the actor sported a fanny pack, black turtleneck, and chain.

“Everyone has an awkward time in their life.”

Well said, Johnson. Well said.
