In 2017, Dwayne Johnson was moved on Twitter by the courageous act accomplished by a ten-year-old boy to save his little brother. The young hero had performed life-saving gestures on the child, found lifeless in a swimming pool, before the arrival of help.

Questioned by the press, the heroic Jacob O’Connor then confessed to having been inspired by the film San Andreas, which sees The Rock play a helicopter pilot ready to do anything to save his family from a terrible earthquake. In one of the scenes of the blockbuster, the hero performs cardiac massage to his daughter after having saved her from drowning, a gesture that the young O’Connor reproduced in real life. “Thank you to the media for relaying such an inspiring story,” The Rock wrote on social media. “What courage and composure from a 10-year-old boy in the face of such distress. It’s an incredible story. I’m checking you on Twitter, Jacob, for saving your little one’s life. brother. You are a true hero, we are all proud of you!” The classy bodybuilder then invited young Jacob and his family to visit him on the set of Skyscraper.

Dwayne Johnson revealed in 2020 that Tim Burton thought of him in the early 2000s to play Willy Wonka, the famous character from his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

“This morning I introduced my babies to one of my favorite movies of all time: 1971’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They loved it and now expect me to deliver a room full of chocolates and sweets. This will be my next project”, declared first, amused, the 48-year-old comedian. Before sharing a delicious anecdote with his fans.

“Nice little anecdote: in the early 2000s, the iconic director Tim Burton thought of me to play Willy Wonka in his version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, continued the actor. “I remember thinking, ‘Oh shit, I’m in the movie!’ But that was many years ago, when I was just starting out in Hollywood, without success at the box office or any real experience to my credit. The role, as we know, went to Johnny Depp, who was then the biggest star in the world. The rest is history. And I followed my road.”
