Dwayne Johnson has now captured the internet’s heart once more…
An incredible video of the star is going viral.
In which he pays back a man who had helped him at his lowest point.
Now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world.
With his staggering 6 ft 5 inches, 260 lbs frame, he’d be pretty hard to miss – but it’s his expressive face (and infamous eyebrows) that really set him apart from the rest.
He started out in the world of WWE, where he became one of the greatest wrestlers of all time…
This is where Johnson first earned his nickname “The Rock” – thanks to his ring presence.
However, he decided to try his hand at acting, knowing there was limited longevity in wrestling…
Johnson successfully transitioned his career into this sphere and is now as well known as an actor as he was as a wrestler, which is pretty impressive.
And when it comes to Johnson, we can’t pass up the opportunity to share this picture…
This brilliant image of him wearing a turtleneck, gold chain, and, inexplicably, a fanny pack, is a particular highlight that the internet loves to bring up.
Since starting his acting endevor, Johnson has been in a whole host of different titles…
Johnson is probably most famous for his performances in the Fast and Furious movies. He plays Luke Hobbs, an intimidating special agent and self-described “ice cold can of whoopass.”
He even made it to Disney…
Johnson voiced the demigod Maui in the huge Disney hit Moana – complete with an amazing song and rap which sent the internet into hysterics.
But we’ll always know him as The Rock, no matter what he decides to take on…
He’s one of the most famous wrestlers of all time and has numerous titles and awards. Despite technically retiring from wrestling in 2004, The Rock still makes public appearances from time to time.
So it’s safe to say Johnson has built an enviable career for himself.
Transitioning from one niche area and building an enormous Hollywood career out of it is no mean feat – it’s clear Johnson is a savvy businessman.
And just a genuinely nice guy…
For a long time, many have cited Johnson as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood for countless reasons:
The first being, he’s a great dad!
Despite having a busy schedule, he is always spending as much time as he can with his three girls.
Then, he’s always been great to his fans.
Frequently posting about meeting them on his social media.
And of course, one of thing that always melts peoples hearts…
He takes care of his mom.
He just seems like an all-round good guy.
And now it appears that Johnson is being recognized for that…
He’s recently shared an Instagram vid that’s taking the internet by storm.
Sharing thanks to a man called Bruno Lauer…
“My life (especially my teenage years) has been full of the wildest twists and turns – yet God and the universe had always found a way to put a few people in my path that would change the trajectory of the road I was going down,” he shared.
“Meet one of my lifelong friends, Bruno Lauer — or I prefer to call him, ‘Downtown Bruno.'”
“My mom and I were evicted off the island of Hawaii and I was sent to Nashville, Tennessee to live with my dad.”
“When I landed in Nashville, I quickly found out I wasn’t gonna live with my dad.”
“Instead, I told I was gonna live with a guy named Bruno. Who at the time lived in a tiny room at a spot called the Alamo Plaza motel.”
“Bruno could’ve (and should’ve) said hell no, I’m not takin’ in some kid who I don’t know.
“But he didn’t.
He took this punk kid in and we became lifelong friends.”
“Then ironically – about 9 years later when I had the infamous “$7 Bucks” in my pocket – I started my wrestling career in Memphis, Tennessee and AGAIN – had no place to live and Bruno took me and let me shake up in his trailer, til I could get on my feet.”
“And hell, when I was 15yrs old, Bruno even gave me his last $40 bucks so I could hustle a crackhead out of his car one night at a honky-tonk in Nashville.”
“Merry Christmas, Bruno and since you helped me ‘buy’ my first car – I figured I could return the favor and buy you one.”
“I love you, brother.
Your kindness and heart – helped change my life’s trajectory.”
