Why Doesn’t the Rock Get to Make Out More Onscreen?


source

Alison Willmore wonders why Dwayne Johnson rarely has on screen romantic storylines, and does it even matter?

He and Emily Blunt do play a romantic couple in Jungle Cruise but the chimstry is not really there and their one kiss is kinda awkward

His other romantic relationships on screen (Neve Campbell in Skyscraper and Carla Gugino in San Andreas) are focused on their families and not on the romance

"The ideal Johnson role is one in which he can be the dad figure while skipping over the actual fathering process, excising any consideration of procreative acts from the narrative entirely."

He does have that body, but it is not portrait as being the object of desire

And he isn't the only big current movie star with litte on screen romance; 21st-century cinema has gotten more and more chaste and the studios seem to prefer that formula
