- Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson joked about how honoured he feels after a child showed his action figure some love
- The toy was the only 'human' allowed within the kid's 'Lion King kingdom'
- The Rock said he was glad to be part of this special 'inner circle'
Popular Hollywood actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was tagged on Twitter by a dad showing his kid's admiration of the star.
The child was playing a game related to The Lion King and allowed only one 'human' to be part of the kingdom - The Rock's action figure.
Proud and amused dad, Lin-Manuel Miranda (an American composer, lyricist, singer, rapper, actor and more), let the Jumanji actor know about this special treatment.
The Rock was pleased by the child's show of love and quoted the intro song (or what sounds like it) of The Lion King:
"Naaaaaaants ingonyama bagithi baba / Sithi uhhmm ingonyamaaa...
I’m honoured to be part of the inner INNER circle."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Hollywood hotshot is one of the highest-paid actors between 2018 and 2019 but that's not an achievement that came cheaply.
He doesn't really feel that he deserves this label though, according to IOL News. Dwayne says he is just a 'bankable actor'.
He added that becoming the kind of actor that he is, takes a lot of hard work, especially in Tinseltown.
"So, what it takes to become ... we'll just say a bankable actor - you guys could say 'biggest movie star in the world' - it takes, again, hard work, perseverance.
"And again it takes context and perspective, especially when you get into this world of Hollywood and the business of Hollywood. Because it is so demanding and it's incredibly difficult."
