Dwayne Johnson is a Class Act

With so much negativity in the world it’s always nice to acknowledge when somebody does something genuinely decent.

Dwayne Johnson has always come across as a nice guy, but this was just the icing on the cake.

He posted on his Official Facebook page about meeting a kid with special needs and he put the production of his latest movie on hold so he could come and say hello.

Check out his post below… dude, got something in my eye…

 

 

Thank you universe.
I was on set this morning ready to start our shooting day when I got word that there was a family with a special needs young man named RYAN who was hoping to meet me. They understood that they travelled in unannounced but they were willing to wait all day until I wrapped to meet. That would’ve 12hrs. Way too long.
So I asked production to hold and walked across the beach to the barriers where they were waiting. When I walked down the stairs, Ryan’s mom (pictured here) was waiting with a huge hug! Her tears started to come as she whispered, “Thank you, thank you”. I met Ryan, his brother and his nurse. What a great and cool kid. Without getting into the details, this kid has waaaaaay more heart, is stronger and tougher than I could ever imagine.
He can’t talk much, but he did tell me, “I love you” in sign language. I thanked him so much for that love.
I walked away from this family so grateful to have met them and Ryan. I don’t ever take meetings like this for granted and when that mama hugged me today and I felt her start to cry… that stuff gets me every single time I hug a parent in these situations, because I’m a parent too and will do anything to make my babies happy and put a smile on their faces.
I know I’m a lucky guy to be in this position and have this platform.
I’m grateful and moments like this will always, ALWAYS be the best part of my job.
Stay strong Ryan and thanks for teaching me how to sign language buddy. Great meeting you and your family.
Thank you universe.

Angel Has Fallen Found a Director?

I love the “Has Fallen” franchise; it’s old-school action and the only problem I’ve had with both movies so far was the dodgy CGI but hopefully with this third entry it will be kept to a minimum. Deadlin...
