Hours before President Obama's announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, Dwayne Johnson tweeted, "Just got word that will shock the world — Land of the free ... home of the brave DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!. Post announcement, he followed that up with "..couldn't have asked for a better birthday present.." and "AMERICA BROUGHT IT — TEAM BRING IT FOREVER PROUD.." (Also of Twitter note: Jack Bauer was a trending topic Sunday night.) Okay, so how does possessing that kind of top level inside information affect Johnson's Hollywood stature? [TheRock/Twitter]
