Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Says He Turned Down The Oscars

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson claims he was the first choice to host the Oscars this year.
He responded to a Twitter follower who suggested he host the awards show later this month, tweeting: “We all tried hard, but couldn’t make it work since I’m shooting ‘Jumanji.’ Academy and I were super bummed but maybe one day down the road.”
