Subscribe To The Rock Officiated A Fan's Wedding During The San Andreas Junket Because He's Awesome Updates
Dwayne Johnson has proven himself as quite the renaissance man. He earned a gigantic fan following thanks to his endlessly charismatic energy as a professional wrestler, but has since taken that same energy and harnessed it to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world. This past weekend, however, Johnson threw on a third hat, as he actually wound up officiating a wedding during the San Andreas press day in Los Angeles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was comedian Nick Mundy who found himself both at the center of a bit and getting hitched on Saturday. Johnson, who is described as Mundy's childhood idol, both walked the comedian down the aisle and guided him through the process of engaging in holy matrimony with his fiancee, animator Dilara Karabas.
You can actually watch the bit play out in the video below:
As you may have guessed, this is no freak thing, and Dwayne Johnson didn't just pick a random person to help get married this past weekend. Nick Mundy first met the wrestler-cum-actor at the Miami-set press junket for Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, and wound up completely flubbing his interviews due to just being so starstruck. Bad as the interviews were, however, Johnson took a liking to the reporter, and wound up inviting him to talk for both Hercules and Furious 7. The video above is one of many "bits" that the two men have done together, another one being a video where Johnson called up individuals who had somehow wronged Mundy in the past. Basically, having The Rock as your friend is pretty damn awesome.
This is hardly the first instance we've seen of Dwayne Johnson being an all-around kick-ass human being. The guy has always come across as an incredibly gracious human being, whether he be just doing interviews promoting and upcoming film, or sharing his experience of getting a letter addressed to him from none other than Steven Spielberg.
I'm sure many of you out there wish that Dwayne Johnson would come to your neighborhood and officiate your wedding, but that's probably not going to happen. Instead, you can just spend time with the superstar by seeing his new movie, San Andreas, in theaters next week.
