The Rock is famous for his appearances in blockbuster Hollywood films and when he is in London he has the perfect home to rest, recuperate and train. The 49-year-old, born Dwayne Douglas Johnson, even owns a portable gym that he takes with him wherever he goes.
The house he rented while in the capital is in South West London and the Richmond area has several famous neighbours. One of them is Tom Hardy! Other famous neighbors he might spot include wildlife legend David Attenborough, actor Richard E Grant, singer Rick Astley and McFly bassist Dougie Poynter, all of whom live in suburban London.
To add more famous faces to the pile, the Rock is renting the same house in Richmond, south-west London, where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stayed in 2012.
The house is perfectly suited to the bodybuilder and he brings with him a portable gym to continue training in the capital. It is sheltered in a marquee in the gardens and contains 40,000 lbs of equipment and a full kitchen.

The Rock can be seen on a horse with his mansion behind him.
There’s also a gym in the house as well as two swimming pools – so the Hollywood legend can swim when she’s not working on her strength.
He’s worth $220m, the equivalent of around £158m and in 2019 he was named the highest paid male actor so he can definitely afford the rent. Luckily for the Rock, he has someone to share the loot with.
