While Dwayne Johnson’s franchise-creating cinematic journey is enough to establish his glowing credentials as an actor, it is his deeds off-camera that keep reminding us that he is an amazing human being as well. This time, the Jumanji star has established his status as the best son ever by giving his mother a big surprise Christmas gift. And it’s not the cost of the present that makes it great, it is the actor’s genuine sentiments and love for his mother. 

Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to share a heartwarming post revealing that he gifted a new car to his mother, Ata Johnson, on Christmas. In the video shared by Johnson, his mother’s happiness is obvious as she hugs her son while crying. The subsequent photos in the post of Johnson’s mother show her inside the car, still teary-eyed until her grandchildren hop into the new vehicle. Even Hobbs, the actor’s dog, is seen ready to jump into the new ride! In the caption, the Red Notice star shared how his mother was “overcome with pure joy” after receiving the car. He further acknowledged the fact that today he is at a place where he can do such things for his mother who “had one helluva life” and deserves “a lot more.” Check out the post from Dwayne Johnson below:

Despite having a jam-packed schedule, Dwayne Johnson has always been the perfect example of having a heart that relishes the joy of giving. Recently, the actor was honored with a People’s Champion Award at People’s Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California. Surprising the audience, Johnson proceeded to bestow the award upon Shushan Lazaryez, who is a young cancer survivor and recipient of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. He handed the golden trophy to her while sharing how her life story as a survivor inspires him as she “fought literally for her life.” 

On the work front in Hollywood, Dwayne Johnson is busy proving his mettle. His recently released Red Notice, alongside Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, has been achieving milestones and breaking records since its release. The film saw the actor play the role of Special Agent John Hartley, a criminal profiler for the FBI, who is hot on the trails of two international art thieves, Sarah Black (Gadot) and Nolan Booth (Reynolds). Just two weeks after it debuted on Netflix, the film surpassed Sandra Bullock’s Bird Box (2018), which previously held the record of the most-watched movie on the streamer. 

Even though the film hasn’t been a favorite of critics, the commercial success of the film has been enough for Netflix to plan a potential future franchise. Giant Freakin Robot has exclusively reported that Red Notice has been greenlit for three sequels. While we can’t confirm whether Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds will be coming back, given Red Notice’s open-ended conclusion and the star power the trio possesses, the certainty of their presence in the sequels is a no-brainer.

Dwayne Johnson’s next release will be DC’s Black Adam, wherein he will be seen as the titular anti-hero. He will also be voicing Krypto, Superman’s dog in DC League of Super-Pets.
