Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is best known for his career as a professional wrestler, which he was able to parlay into a career as an an action star in such movies as The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King, and several films in The Fast and the Furious franchise.
He has also starred in a few family comedies, such as Tooth Fairy, and he’s appeared on several television shows.
Johnson’s large physique and intimidating build certainly make him an imposing figure, but even the toughest of men can be surprisingly sentimental — just like these prison inmates who train service dogs and end up getting incredibly attached.
Johnson has frequently talked to the press about how he credits his mother’s love and sacrifices as a major motivators for his success.
Through dedicated work ethic, perseverance, and a positive attitude, Johnson has become one of the richest and most well-known celebrities on the planet.
And he’s making sure to pay it all back to the mother who gave him everything.
