The Rock posted a video to urge fans to “speak your truth”, after becoming the most-followed male on Instagram.

Dwayne Johnson has urged people to “speak your truth”.

The Jumanji: The Next Level star took to Instagram on Thursday (Oct 8) to celebrate reaching 200 million followers on the platform, and posted a message to his fans telling them to always remain true to who they are.

He wrote in the caption: “Here’s what I’ve learned these past few weeks and maybe, you can find value in this take away and apply it to your own life.

“Always speak your truth.

“And when you do speak your truth - do your best to speak with dignity, compassion, respect, poise and empathy.

“Even when the conversations get uncomfortable - when you approach with respect and care - on the other side of discomfort - is clarity and progress.

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for giving me the space to speak my truth.

“You have my word, I’ll always do my best to speak my truth with dignity, respect, empathy and GRATITUDE.

“That’s my lesson I’ve learned. (sic)”

Another very productive work week on set of RED NOTICE 🙏🏾 * Some very cool Hollywood intel for all you cinephiles out there 🎥 I’m gonna sound like a big technology nerd but the hell with it, here we go🤓 The small @panavisionofficial camera on the right in this picture thats on a slider, on top of a wooden apple box is using one of the most prolific Hollywood lenses of all time. It’s an ultra Panatar anamorphic lens. The same glass that shot BEN HUR (1959) and LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962). 60+ year old glass with beautiful quirks and distortions and a unique bokeh. Old school shit — they literally don’t (and can’t!) make them like this anymore. We’ve coupled these lenses with the most cutting edge digital technology in the world — Red’s 8k Monstro — to achieve a look that’s both old school Hollywood & new school slick. No one’s photographed a film with this combo before — until RED NOTICE. A special shout to our brilliant/hungry cinematographer @markusforderer for his unique and groundbreaking vision. We’re making a great one. The world’s most wanted art thief. An FBI profiler. And the greatest conman the world has ever seen. #RedNotice #OldSchoolHollywood @netflix @sevenbucksprod @flynnpictureco @masistills 📸

Dwayne says speaking his truth is what led him to reach the 200 million follower milestone, but admits the achievement — which makes him the most followed man, and third most followed individual overall on the platform — pales in comparison to his role as “number one daddy”.

The 48-year-old star — who has 19-year-old Simone with his ex-wife Dany Garcia, and four-year-old Jasmine and two-year-old Tiana with his wife Lauren Hashian —added: “And the result of speaking my truth is I was just informed, I’ve surged past and blown by 200 MILLION FOLLOWERS on Instagram and over 300 MILLION FOLLOWERS across all platforms - officially becoming/

“The #1 followed man in America.

“The #1 followed American man in the world.

“And most importantly, the #1 daddy at home.

“Love you guys, I always got your back and let’s keep rockin’ (sic)”
