Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have somehow become Hollywood’s dynamic duo.

From their photoshop skills to using Kevin’s phobia as a behind-the-scenes prank, their bromance is just plain precious.

Both are firm supporters of anti-bullying.

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were both victims of bullying, and they surprised 275 teenagers at a high school in New York City to spread an anti-bullying message.

“Our message to everybody here is to be great. If you are a person who’s been bullied, we encourage you to speak up… You all have a bright future. You know why you have a bright future? Because you all are your own destiny.”

Dwayne Johnson is pretty good with photoshop.

When Dwayne had his baby girl, he posted a photo... but added Kevin's face.

The caption was, "To my beloved son, @kevinhart4real/Twinkle Twinkle little Hart/I just don’t know where to start.”

They’ve starred in 5 movies together (so far).

We’re guessing they’ll keep it going.

As of today, they’ve appeared together in Central Intelligence (2016), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017), Jumanji: The Next Level (2019), The Fast & The Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019), and voicing DC League of Super-Pets - which is set for release on May 20, 2022.

Size difference by the numbers.

Since they always joke about it.

According to Kevin, he’s 5-foot-2 and a half! And a little over 140lbs. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on the other hand… 6-foot-2 and a half and little over 260lbs.

In a 2001 University Wire he said "I'm 6-foot-4, 260 pounds". He has also claimed to be "Six-Four and a Half, or 6-foot-five,” and joked "I have 6" lifts in my sneakers. I'm actually 5'9".

They met at an awards show.

Locked eyes and sparks flew.

In 2016, Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter, “We met each other for the first time probably two or three years ago at an awards show, but we always knew we wanted to work with each other.”

“Since working with him I can honestly tell you that I’ve never had this type of brotherly chemistry with anyone that I’ve worked with and it’s a cool thing.” 

Kevin Hart was bold on their first project together.

In an outtake from Central Intelligence, Hart tells Johnson, "You think Mr. T and Sting and The Rock, you think those guys are real? That's a buncha dumbass nicknames by a buncha dumbass people!

Luckily Johnson cracks up laughing instead of squashing him.

Smolder’s smoldering gaze.

Dr. Smolder Bravestone might be the movie-est name ever.

In Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, Johnson plays Dr. Bravestone, and his character profile said that he has a smoldering gaze. After hearing this, Johnson had the idea to give him the name Smolder.

He suggested the idea to producer Jake Kasden over text, and it stuck.

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were the first choices for their Jumanji roles.

Dr. Bravestone and Franklin “Mouse” Finbar were cast right away, and Johnson tweeted his excitement about the role in April 2016 - months before shooting had even begun.

After Central Intelligence, producers knew they could rely on Johnson and Hart’s on-screen chemistry.

“Best Friends Forever”.
