Laughin’ at the time back in high school when I got into a Valentine’s Day argument w/ my girlfriend and she so clearly told me where I could shove 😂🌹🤦🏽‍♂️my roses. Flew from LA to Miami so I could spend an awesome afternoon and lovely dinner with my #1 Valentine @simonegjohnson. Little sleep but so well worth our invaluable and fun father/daughter time. SO PROUD of her and that apple sure didn’t fall far from this tree. Dropped her off, gave her a massive bear hug and back on the bird to get to work. A special Valentines and now excuse me while I get crazy and bring new meaning to the term “mile high club” by goin’ to town on my chicken and pasta. #fatherdaughter #grateful🖤

Beyond entertaining, Johnson is very charitable — he is the founder of the Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation — changing lives, one at a time, so it wasn't a surprise when he made the list of Time's "100 Most Influential People of the Year."

The magazine selects every year individuals from different sectors — business, politics, and entertainment — who have made an impact in the year before. Then, a colleague or close friend of those that made the list writes a tribute.

Gal Gadot, Johnson's co-star in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, wrote his tribute, and she held nothing back, writing about what an awesome human being the former wrestler is.

It ain’t pretty, no glossy polish or fake camera set ups. It’s hard work or get the f*ck outta my gym. Wrapped our #ProjectRock BEND BOUNDARIES COLLECTION commercial shoot for @underarmour. As with all of our @underarmour spots that’s created by our Seven Bucks advertising company, @sevenbuckscr — I want to disrupt the traditional method of marketing that’s always presented and create something new, different, raw, uncut and directly from my DNA. No fancy gym set ups, no fancy camera tricks and quick cutaways. At the end of the day, it’ll always come down to me putting every single piece of gear to the test personally before I deliver it to you. Real, raw and authentic. As always, THANK YOU for making #ProjectRock, @underarmour’s #1 seller. I’m nice, but when it comes to my business I don’t play nice. Ever. #ProjectRock #UnderArmour #BendBoundariesCollection SPRING 2019

The "Wonder Woman" star described the "Scorpion King" actor as a workaholic with high work ethics, and as someone, she is delighted to work with all the time.

While the "Jumanji" actor's height and build might intimidate a lot of people, Gadot looks beyond the physical to the man within; she said he has a big heart filled with warmth and positivity.

This character trait according to the actress makes him give his all to everything he does, whether it is working out, filming, or helping others.

Gadot also said that the 46-year-old embodies the saying that people may not remember what you said or did for them, but they'll never forget how they felt around you, and in her words:

 "Dwayne always makes people feel their best when he is around."

Johnson got listed among other celebrities like Brie Larson, Rami Malek, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga, and their tribute writers sang their praise.

Robert Downey Jr. in his tribute to Malek described him as a leader and someone who developed skills that made him a better artist.

Tessa Thompson said that Larson is becoming one of the greatest leaders in "Marvel," and continues to break boundaries at a time when women are making an impact in Hollywood.

Songwriter, Troye Sivan, said that Grande is authentic with her emotions and wears her heart on her sleeve, but at the same time, she is resilient.

Shawn Mendes said that Swift makes making music appear easy, and her ability to express honest and raw emotions, helps the singer connect with her fans.

Celine Dion said Gaga is very inventive and her influence makes people stand for what they believe, despite what others think.

Johnson and Gadot star in the upcoming movie “Red Notice.”
