Wrestler-turned-movie star THE ROCK has turned down the chance to have a doughnut named after him.

Bosses at American company DUNKIN' DONUTS heard that the star, real name Dwayne Johnson, was a big fan of their treats and asked him to put his name on a new cream-filled cake.

He says, "We heard from them and they were like, 'Are you interested in having a doughnut named after you?' and I was like, 'Yeah, absolutely, it would be great,' and then I thought, 'No, because people would think I'm some crazy nut.'"
