Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the highest paid actor in Hollywood, & from what we know, he’s also one of the nicest celebrities out there. He’s super humble & always remembers to appreciate people in small roles. Johnson posted a video on Facebook of himself & his stuntman of 17 years, Tanoai Reed, doing a behind the scenes interview together. Reed recently returned back to the set after an injury, had no idea that the interview would end with him being given a huge surprise. “He’s been an incredible partner and brother to me,” Johnson says of Reed. “It’s been an honor and I want to say from the bottom of my heart, I love you, I thank you, and enjoy your new truck.”  Johnson steps aside to reveal a brand new pickup truck parked behind them, topped with a big red bow.  Reed obviously looks shocked when he sees the truck, begins to cry & is so choked up he can’t even speak.  Johnson’s Facebook post explains that over the course of his career, Reed has “broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several ‘Stuntman of the Year’ honors.”  Reed, who is still recovering from his latest injury, “represent[s] our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion,” Johnson writes. “He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business.” “Thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years,” the former wrestler writes to Reed, who has worked with him for 17 years. “We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck!”
