Jess is a curly-haired Jersey girl who adores penguins and watches the worst reality shows on TV.

Aside from being a famous actor and former wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is also known for his big heart.

One day, he received an email from a stranger that he knew he had to respond to. He learned about a terminally ill grandmother named Judy and her life story. Then, he realized she’d brought a cardboard cutout of him to the hospital to keep her optimistic and strong throughout her hospice.

When he learned this, the star made his way to his Instagram account and directly addressed the photo of Judy that he found attached in the email he received.

The Rock posted an emotional — and flirty — video message just for Judy, hoping to inspire her and everyone else who was going to view it.
