One of the most popular actors in the world, wi this list we look at The Rock’s closest friends and some of the people he no longer communicates with.
Successful at pretty much everything he does, Dwayne Johnson exudes so much charisma that he seems infinitely watchable. A trait that appears to hold true in person, it seems like everyone wants to have a little bit of The Rock in their life. No matter how in demand the man clearly is, however, he still has managed to build some extremely close relationships. That said, there are other people that have played a part in his life that he no longer interacts with regularly, in some cases due to negative feelings between them.
In order for someone to be considered for possible inclusion on this list, they either need to have a close friendship with The Rock or seem to no longer be a big part of his life. For the purposes of this list, it makes no difference whatsoever how the person in question first became a part of The Rock’s life. All of that said, we want to make it abundantly clear that we don’t know anyone included as a part of this list personally. As such, we included people on this list based on public reports about their relationship with Dwayne Johnson. With all that in mind, here is a list of ten people
15Close Friend: Rob Corddry
An actor that is far from a household name, there is still no doubt that Rob Corddry has been one of the most in-demand comedic actors over the last several years. We say that because he has appeared in twenty-four different shows and twenty-one different movies since the year 2010 alone. Clearly, someone that is extremely hardworking and perhaps that is the aspect of his personality that has allowed Corddry become good pals with Dwayne Johnson.
It's interesting because Corddry has been cast as a total jerk over and over again, which makes his onscreen persona the polar opposite of The Rock’s.
Working together on the well-received HBO series Ballers for several years at this point, that show that stars Dwayne Johnson and Rob Corddry is set to return in August. As a result, it is very safe to say that they’ve spent a great deal of time working together, which makes it very fortunate that they enjoy each other’s company so much. Asked during an interview what is it is like working with The Rock, Corddry replied “it’s as good as you imagine it is. He’s a really good dude.” On top of that, Corddry said about spending time with Johnson, he’s “a superhero in some people’s eyes and he doesn’t do anything to dispel that when you’re hanging out with him”.
14 Close Friend: Hugh Jackman
One of the most talented people in Hollywood, Hugh Jackman is most famous for playing Wolverine on the big screen but he has accomplished so much more than that. A throwback to the song and dance performers of yesteryear, he has strutted his stuff in films and even more notably on a long list of theater stages. On top of all of his achievements in the entertainment world, Jackman also stands out as he comes off like a genuinely awesome dude, something he has in common with The Rock.
Two men that have taken on roles that require them to be incredibly jacked, it seems this bond is what has turned them into friends. Hugh Jackman revealed that he turned to Dwayne Johnson for advice on how to pack on muscle. Talking about it during an interview, Jackman said "I know Dwayne and I rang him and said, ‘Buddy, I saw you in The Tooth Fairy…and then I saw you in an action movie and you are massive. How do you do it?” Additionally, he spoke about one of their many conversations that was especially touching. "Right as he's telling me the whole diet, someone knocked on his trailer door—and I'll never forget this moment," Jackman recalls in an excited voice. "He goes, 'Hold on a second! I'm talking to Wolverine! You can tell them I said they can wait.'"
