Marilyn Monroe is missing from the top of a 25-year-old Hollywood installation

Marilyn Monroe is missing from the top of a 25-year-old Hollywood installation LOS ANGELES - For 25 years, a glittery sculpture of Marilyn Monroe has perched high above the "Four Ladies of Hollywood" gazebo - a statuesque gateway to the Walk of Fame. In the predawn hours of Monday morning, Marilyn went missing. LAPD's Hollywood division and forensics experts are searching for the missing figure, which depicts Monroe in her iconic "Seven Year Itch" pose. An investigation is underway, and a theory has emerged about how she was nabbed. "I am calling this the great Marilyn caper of 2019," Councilman Mitch O'Farrell said. "We have a witness who saw someone climb this structure and saw off the statue at the top.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Dwayne “ The Rock ” Johnson , one of Hollywood ’s top paid stars, said on Monday he struggled with depression after watching his mother’s attempted suicide and encouraged men suffering from the disease to open up about their struggles and seek help.

The bromance between Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart continues to flourish with every film the two do together. WWE even tried to use Rock to help get the controversial Reigns over with the crowd. What makes his performance so remarkable is Rocky injured himself early in the bout.

Johnson continued on, explaining how early in his acting career, he learned a valuable lesson; that "the most powerful thing we can be is be ourselves."

"When I got to Hollywood, they didn't know what the hell to do with me. I was this half-black, half-Samoan, 6'4" 270-pound pro wrestler. I was told at the time I had to be a certain way," he recalled. "'You gotta drop some weight … you gotta stop calling yourself The Rock... For years I bought into it, that's what I thought I was supposed to do. But I was miserable, so I made a choice; I wasn't going to conform to Hollywood, Hollywood was going to conform to me. And now here I am, with all of you, getting the Generation Award. Holy s**t!"

"What you saw up here tonight [with the dancers], this is who I am," he added. "I wanted to bring these cultures up here for the world to see. Yes, it's important that you are your most authentic self. I'm a walking example of that. But that's not enough, because there's another side [and] that's the side that the magic is on. That's the side that's gold."

Dwayne ‘ The Rock ’ Johnson Pivots from Basically Playing Himself in a Film to Actually Playing Himself in a Film. Dwayne “ The Rock ” Johnson has mastered the fine art of dominating a genre or character type and delivering an army of films while getting paid for it.

Johnson explained that the "magic" side has to do with never forgetting those around you, who constantly support you and lift you up, and to remember to do everything with compassion.

"You do that by being kind, by being compassionate by being inclusive, and straight-up just being good to people, because that matters," he said. "When I was 15 years old, I heard a quote... 'It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.'"

Johnson echoed those sentiments earlier this year while chatting with ET at the Time 100 Gala in New York City in April. The humble actor, who was being honored at the event, said he was "such a lucky guy" to have the type of career he has had thus far.

"If you're lucky enough to become successful it's one thing," Johnson said. "The cover of Time, for me, is really reflective of a lot of good, hard-working people around me."

This Canadian actor will star with the Rock and Gal Gadot in Netflix’s biggest movie yet and we can’t wait.
The budget is huge!
