The Rock Knew About Bin Laden Before You Did

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]
