Dwayne Johnson Wins Hearts on Make-A-Wish Day

Celebs September 17, 2018 By Hugo

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is many things. Handsome. Talented. Cool. Charming. The list goes on and on, but his most valued attribute as a human being is undoubtedly his kindness, as he displayed once more when he shared a series of touching videos on Instagram.

The videos saw Johnson meet and greet a number of sick children who were bought to set by the Make A Wish Foundation; a charity Johnson has been involved with for many years, so much so that he makes a habit of meeting up with sick children every year.

On this occasion, he invited them to the set of his latest movie, Jungle Cruise. All being fans of his work, the A-lister put the starstruck fans at ease by being the genuinely warm and loving person he is.

Describing the emotional experience, Johnson took to Instagram where he captioned an endearing photo of the children as the 'best part' of fame, adding "Even though I was obviously there with the kids and parents, it's hard for me to watch these without shedding a happy tear or two.

"As a man, father and luckiest SOB on this planet, I can honestly say without no uncertain terms - to me, this will always be the best part of my job."

The kids were given a unique, all-access guide around the Jungle Cruise set, which was packed full of tasty candy and games for the guests to enjoy.

Johnson also stayed in his costume, which clearly went down well with the children, who described the action star as their 'main role model.'

Following the awesome meet and greet session, Johnson then hands the children and their parents a range of gifts that includes a year's supply of cinema tickets, several Disney goodies, and an elite Jungle Cruise X-Box One with a year's worth of games.

Uploading another video to his Instagram, Johnson went onto explain what these events mean to him as a human being. "This kind of thing where we're delivering happiness to kids who need it and parents who need it is very special. The kids say that I inspire them, which is awesome, but the irony about it is they have no idea how much they inspire me."

However, it was the words of one insightful child in attendance that best summed up the magical day. "I thought we just looked up to him but I guess he looks up to us too."
