Son tantas las películas donde se protagonizan a personajes rudos y musculosos, que no te imaginas a todo un macho alfa mostrando su lado humano. Así lo demostró Dwayne Johnson, mejor conocido como The Rock, al tomarse el tiempo entre su apretada agenda para pasar un día con sus fans con necesidades especiales o capacidades diferentes.
Son estas acciones que causan admiración en estos actores de Hollywood, quienes, pese a tenerlo todo lo material, también ponen atención en la gente vulnerable.
Una vez más, demostró lo importante que son para él sus fans y documentó en Instagram la experiencia y el tiempo que pasó con niños con necesidades especiales.
A very special day. Today, I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with Ms. Ashley Rodriguez from Make-A-Wish. I walked in, walked right over to her and… she started crying, then her mama started crying (in the background), then dammit I almost cried, but everyone was watching so I held it together 'cause I'm tough as nails😂. We hung out, ate some lunch together and chatted about all the cool things we have in common – our love for pizza, our fear of spiders (don't tell anyone Rock's afraid of spiders;) and our love for our dogs. As a matter of fact Ashely loves animals so much that she wants to be a veterinarian one day which is awesome – she'd make an amazing vet! Took lots of selfies, laughed a ton, gave her a few gifts and then we wrapped up our visit. Ashley, you made my heart full today and I'm such a lucky guy to have been able to spend time with you. You stay strong, stay awesome, keep smilin', enjoy the gift and always keep lovin' pepperoni pizza. And I'll do the same! Lastly, I want to thank everyone who made Ashley's and her family's trip possible. So many people who I don't even know, but please know that I'm grateful from afar. Always say this, because it's true.. this is by far the best part of my fame. #Onset #Baywatch #MakeAWish #AshleyRodriguez #AndOneVeryLuckyBigBrownBaldDude
“Un día muy especial. Hoy tuve el placer de conocer y pasar tiempo con la señorita Ashley Rodríguez de Make-A-Wish. Pasamos el rato, comimos algo juntos y charlamos acerca de las cosas interesantes que tenemos en común: nuestro amor por la pizza, el miedo a las arañas y el amor a nuestros perros”
Thank you universe. I was on set this morning ready to start our shooting day when I got word that there was a family with a special needs young man named RYAN who was hoping to meet me. They understood that they travelled in unannounced but they were willing to wait all day until I wrapped to meet. That would've 12hrs. Way too long. So I asked production to hold and walked across the beach to the barriers where they were waiting. When I walked down the stairs, Ryan's mom (pictured here) was waiting with a huge hug! Her tears started to come as she whispered, "Thank you, thank you". I met Ryan, his brother and his nurse. What a great and cool kid. Without getting into the details, this kid has waaaaaay more heart, is stronger and tougher than I could ever imagine. He can't talk much, but he did tell me, "I love you" in sign language. I thanked him so much for that love. I walked away from this family so grateful to have met them and Ryan. I don't ever take meetings like this for granted and when that mama hugged me today and I felt her start to cry… that stuff gets me every single time I hug a parent in these situations, because I'm a parent too and will do anything to make my babies happy and put a smile on their faces. I know I'm a lucky guy to be in this position and have this platform. I'm grateful and moments like this will always, ALWAYS be the best part of my job. Stay strong Ryan and thanks for teaching me how to sign language buddy. Great meeting you and your family. Thank you universe.
As fate would have it, I got lucky and met this amazing family… @michaelsailors It was an honor to meet one of the most influential, kind, GENUINE, and charismatic dudes out there today. It was amazing to see @therock touch my brother and mom's heart. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to meet us man! #WhatsYourAnchor #ThumbsUpForRy #TybeeIsland #Savannah #Baywatch
“Gracias universo. Él no puede hablar mucho, pero me dijo ‘Te amo’ en lenguaje de señas. Di gracias a él por ese amor”
“Impresionante día de The Rock, mi hombre es Larry”
“Antes de despedirnos, Ashley tuvo una última petición. ¡Cómo podría resistirme a una dama tan hermosa!”
Al parecer la fama nunca se la ido a la cabeza de Dwayne Johnson, lo cual le hace ganar más fans, aún.
