Dwayne Johnson’s daughter Simone Garcia Johnson named Golden Globe Ambassador

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has selected Simone Garcia Johnson, daughter of Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia, as the Golden Globe Ambassador for the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards.

HFPA president Meher Tatna made the announcement Wednesday evening at Catch LA in West Hollywood. The previous honorary title of Miss or Mister Golden Globe was retired.

“As we look forward to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members decided to expand this role to embody the HFPA’s philanthropic efforts year round,” said Tatna. “The honoree will now be referred to as the Golden Globe Ambassador and we could not think of a better representative than Simone to carry on this tradition, as her values closely reflect everything the HFPA stands for.”
