Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson surprises church leader with a very personal gift

The popular actor really went the extra mile!

Dwayne Johnson — “The Rock” as he’s commonly referred to — doesn’t take his celebrity status for granted. While the Hollywood actor is known for his very impressive muscles, he’s also garnered a big following for the level of kindness he shows his fans.

You may not be a fan of his action-packed films, but there’s something very endearing about the former wrestler who loves to help others. From setting up a foundation for helping children at risk and the terminally ill, to helping repair flood damage in Hawaii, Johnson seems to genuinely want to use his good fortune to help others.

In true Rock style, the star recently turned up at a movie theater that was showing his latest movie Red Notice to surprise a fan of his, Oscar Rodriguez.

Johnson noted that the personal trainer and Navy vet always keeps a positive outlook and dedicates himself to helping others: by being a church leader, making meals for women who’ve suffered domestic violence, and also caring for his elderly mom (something that would definitely impress The Rock, who is a self-declared mama’s boy).

While Rodriguez was delighted with the visit, which was shared on The Rock’s social media, he got the surprise of his life when he was gifted something very dear to the actor’s heart. Take a few minutes to watch the uplifting video and be inspired to lend a helping hand, too!
