As you know, Dwayne is not one of those superstars who ignore their fans. Instead, he gave her an answer. Kelzenberg, who attends Stillwater Area High School, was at statistic class when an announcement came through loudspeakers: “I’m going to start this Friday morning announcement off with a little bit of fun and a little bit of excitement. You’re probably thinking ‘What? What is The Rock doing on our intercom system?’ Well, I’m sending a message to a very special young lady, and her name is Miss Katie Kelzenberg.”
According to St. Paul Pioneer Press, The Rock had bad news for this young girls, as he won’t be able to attend her prom on May 5th. At that time Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle star will be filming his latest project Jungle Cruise.
But, Johnson didn’t disappoint his fan. He’s not like that. Katie has The Rock’s pillow, action figure, and a T-Shirt. A true fan! So, even if he had to decline her incite for prom, he did another amazing thing.
People’s Champ rented local theater so that Katie could watch his action-adventure film Rampage. In a video message, Johnson said: “I decided to rent out an entire theater (capacity 232 seats) in her town so Katie and her closest 232 friends and family can enjoy a special screening of RAMPAGE. And all the free popcorn, candy and soda high school kids can consume! Your money’s no good Katie… everything is on Uncle DJ.” You can see the video below.
Talking about what The Rock did for her Katie was in disbelief: “I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised. I just kept thinking, ‘He saw me! He knows who I am!’ I like that he interacts with his fans so well. He takes time out of his day to connect with them.”
This is precisely what separates Dwayne Johnson from rest of the Hollywood stars. He’s the man of the people. A People’s Champ!
