Dwayne Johnson Surprises Stunt Double In The Most Beautiful Way

Celebs August 1, 2018 By Hugo

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is one of Hollywood's nice guys, and along with Ryan Reynolds, he's probably the most genuine, down to earth actor working in the business, so what he did for his stunt double is hardly surprising!

In yet another example of Dwayne goodness, a video he uploaded to his Instagram page sees him drop by the set and gift a truck to his stunt double following 17 years of putting his life on the line for the actor.

Tanoai Reed, who also happens to be Johnson's cousin, was gifted a custom pick-up truck as a thank you for all his work having intially told him he was doing a behind the scenes interview with him. 

Captioning the feelgood post, Hollywood's highest paid actor wrote, "SURPRISE! I love handing over keys. I love you brother and enjoy your new truck!

"Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several 'Stuntman of the Year' honors.

"All done with one goal in mind - deliver the best movie possible to the world."

"I had this custom pickup truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he's still recovering from a stunt injury) while we gave what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together.

"As you'll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that's the driver's cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise.

"Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business."

"Love you uso (sic) [brother] and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years. We're just getting started.

"Enjoy your new truck!"

So overcome with emotions was Tanoai that he even shed a few tears- hardly in keeping with his hardman persona! 

It just goes to show that even the toughest men in the world aren't afraid to express their emotions. Watch the full video here and let us know your thoughts in the comments below. 

Keep spreading the love, Dwayne!
