Dwayne Johnson Gifts His Stunt Double (And Cousin) With Something Special

Dwayne Johnson loves giving gifts and this was a big one! The Rock posted a super heartwarming video on Instagram of him giving his stunt double, who is also his cousin, Tanoai Reed a custom pickup truck to thank him for 17 years of work! You have to watch it below. Make sure you check out what he wrote about him too!

SURPRISE! I love handing over keys---- I love you brother and enjoy your new truck! Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors. All done with one goal in mind - deliver the best movie possible to the world. I had this custom pick up truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he’s still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together. As you’ll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that’s the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise. Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business. Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years. We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck! #LetsRoll ----

Chris Pratt And Katherine Schwarzenegger Are Already Pretty Serious

This was fast. I feel like I was just letting you know that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger were spotted going out on a date. Well apparently they are the REAL DEAL. After a month of dating, ET is reporting that they have gotten very serious, very quickly. They're inseparable and they've already met each other's friends and family and everyone is so happy for them. Katherine Schwarzenegger has even met Chris Pratt's son Jack, who he shares with his ex-wife Anna Faris who he split up with just last year, and they get along really well. That's a big step for a single dad! I say when you introduce your girlfriend to your child, that's pretty serious. Hey, as long as they're happy!
