Dwayne Johnson is truly one of the most influential stars of all time. He was the pinnacle of comedic promos during his time in the WWE. Rock portrayed his true self by delivering over-the-edge promos during the Attitude Era. After a successful career in WWE, he went to Hollywood and saw nothing but success. During this time, he tied the knot two times and is currently living happily with his wife Lauren Hashian.
Rock’s most notable co-actor will undoubtedly be Kevin Hart. He is one of the most successful actors in Hollywood and can win anyone’s heart with his impeccable comic timing. His diverse acting style and joke delivery make him a true star and he has been ruling the industry since his movies took over the cinemas. His comedic style is often related to his expressions, which tickle everyone and are well-praised by the critics.
When it comes to a dynamic comedic duo, The Rock and Kevin Hart might take all the credit away. There’s no hiding from the fact that both of them are good friends even behind the camera. There have been various instances where both of them have shown how hilarious a friendship can be.
One such instance came back in 2019 when Kevin Hart was supposed to appear on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’. Kevin was unable to appear on the show due to a fatal accident. However, he was backed up by his best friend, Dwayne Johnson. The Rock said on the show, “I spoke with Kevin…I refer to him as my son. I connected with him today and these things happen in life and thankfully, he was strapped in nicely to his car seat..”
It shows how good friends both of the actors are behind the scenes. The Rock also jokingly talked about the incident on his Instagram quoting, “When my son Kevin Hart goes down with an injury, his big daddy steps in. I did leave my honeymoon early”.
The Rock appeared on the show on behalf of Kevin leaving his honeymoon with his newlywed wife, Lauren Hashian. While on the show, Rock talked about Kevin and also sent him his best wishes.
