Watch Dwayne Johnson Give $30K Truck to the Guy Who Took Him In When ‘The Rock’ was a Homeless Teenager

There’s a reason why Dwayne Johnson gets called the most likable celebrity around. Not only is he funny; he has his own foundation that helps at-risk and terminally ill children. Kindness just seems to be in this actor’s bones. As for his latest act? He’s just gifted a brand new Ford F-150 to an old friend.

On New Year’s Day, the 48-year-old Fast and Furious star visited pal Bruno Lauer.

It’s true that the Rock’s initial greetings didn’t sound all that friendly. “Hey you son of a gun!” Dwayne yelled across the parking lot. But his tone was just in jest.

Bruno took the actor in when he was homeless as a teen in Tennessee. Nine years later, after Johnson fell on hard times once again while trying to make his name as a wrestler, it was Bruno who again came to the rescue and said he could live in his Nashville trailer.

‘I love you, brother,” Johnson wrote to his friend in a post on Instagram. “Your kindness and heart – helped change my life’s trajectory. And when you’re ready to retire from ‘the business’ you just say the word. I got you covered.”

A $30,000 truck and the gift of a financially stable future? Bruno, a former wrestling manager, couldn’t hold back the tears.
