Johnson recently watched the 2016 animated film with his daughter and was excited to tell her about his role. The actor explained how the exchange went down saying:

“I said, ‘You know, that’s Daddy’s voice, and I’m going to show you.' Maui starts singing, and I then start singing, and within 10 seconds she’s trying to put a pillow over my mouth and says, ‘You’re ruining the song.'”

The “Jumanji: The Next Level” star recalled:

“Simone went to a Jingle Ball concert a few years back and had met all the artists. She came back to the house and said it was amazing and was like, ‘I’ve never been around anybody famous before.’ And I’m like, ‘No one, you sure?’”

On Monday night, December 9, 2019, Johnson took his wife out for a date. The long-term couple, who just got married in August, went to the Hollywood premiere of “Jumanji: The Next Level.”
