Dwayne Johnson proves he's still the best guy ever after surprising his mom with a house for Christmas
Celebrities are often given a bad name by a small minority who abuse their position and influence (Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein I'm talking about you).
This rich and famous subset of society are often much maligned and court controversy with the general public thanks to their huge paychecks and glamorous Instagram accounts. But doesn't it make sense that the vast majority of celebrities are just normal people who happen to have amazing singing voices, or an innate ability to bring stories to life on the big screen?
To me, Dwayne Johnson is a shining example of what it means to be rich and famous. Not content to simply live the high life, Dwayne is no stranger to acts of true generosity. In August, the Fast and Furious star and former WWE wrestler bought his stunt double to tears after buying him a brand new car, and now he has shown once again why his fans adore him so much.
This Christmas, Johnson bought his long-suffering mother an incredible present... a brand new house!
Accompanying the video on Instagram, Dwayne explained why he felt the need to buy such a big gift for his mother:
"This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas.
"All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another.
"The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5 years later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated.
"Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need – houses, cars etc.
"But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful.
"I told her to treat this card like it’s “Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket” because she gets to choose any home she wants – anywhere she wants.
"I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being.
"And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen.
"Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home."
I don't know about you guys, but the words, "if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being" certainly ring true to me, as I'm sure it does with lots of you. Just another reason why Dwayne Johnson is one of the best celebrities out there - a family man with a heart of gold.
