Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had emotional, inspiring words for a fan battling Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
Johnson did a three-minute Instagram tribute on Sunday to Anny Payne.
Through his people, the actor-superstar found out about Payne, a Middletown, Pa. Township supervisor and vice-chair of the state’s Rare Disease Advisory Council.
On Sunday, Johnson surprised his fan with a heartfelt message. He captioned the video and said he was now one of her biggest fans as she worked to battle her devastating cancer. He said she should inspire people with her story, which he shared with all his fans.
The 49-year-old actor also joked that he was her biggest fan because he was the size of a dinosaur and “as old as one too!”
“Stay strong, Anna,” Johnson said. “Keep the faith and keep your fight alive!”
Alabama Cop Looks Just Like Dwayne Johnson
Erik Fields, a Patrol Lieutenant in Morgan County’s Sherriff’s Department, gets odd looks when pulling over speeders in Alabama.
The 37-year-old and 17-year sheriff’s veteran shares the same features as former wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson. He’s even got the shaved head to match.
Fields is bald, has a muscular physique, and has a similar chin and bone structure in the face as Johnson. Effortlessly, he could be Johnson’s stand-in with all those shared traits.
The Morgan County Sheriff’s office even posted a photo on Facebook of Fields to show a citizen recently. Fields has “run” with the joke for a while now. In specific images, he even shares similar looks to another actor, Vin Diesel.
“I’ve been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child,” Fields said to Al.com. “I go along with it. It’s humorous. It’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess.”
Former Bond Actor Admires Dwayne Johnson
Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan’s got a lot of respect for his “Black Adam” co-star, Johnson.
Brosnan told Haute Living that “he’s got great admiration for him and what he’s created for himself in life and how he conducts himself with the world at large.”
Brosnan said he’s worked with Johnson a few times on the set. He commended the former wrestler for his work ethic and focus on the film.
According to Screen Rant, the 68-year-old Brosnan plays the role of master sorcerer Doctor Fate.
The feeling may be mutual too. When Brosnan joined the cast, Johnson jumped at the chance to welcome him. “The Rock” even made a social media statement, saying it was a pleasure to work with him in a brilliant and diverse cast.
