His first leading film role was in the 2002 flick The Scorpion King and he has since become one of the highest paid and most powerful actors in the industry, according to Time and Forbes.

To thank his friend and cousin, Johnson secretly had a custom Ford pickup truck built as a gift while Reed recovered from an injury.

We'll hear more about the tears later.

Reed, who just returned to set after suffering an injury, didn't know that the interview was staged and that Johnson had a surprise up his sleeve.

You can see the exact moment when Johnson surprised him in the Instagram video below. And in the caption of the video, Dwayne shared that Tanoai is incredibly committed to his craft.

But Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson proved his heart of gold is nearly larger than life as he surprised his longtime stunt double and cousin Tanoai Reed with a custom truck.

'All done with one goal in mind - [to] deliver the best movie possible to the world'.

"As you'll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that's the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise", Johnson continues.

"Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business", he added.

"It's been an honour uso (brother) and I want to say from the bottom of my heart, I love you, I thank you and enjoy your new truck", he smiled. We're just getting started. But he's not just a heavy hitter: he's also a really nice guy with a sensitive side, and he isn't afraid to show a little gratitude to the people closest to him, as this super-sweet video proves. He seemed a bit overwhelmed and even shed a few tears - not something you'd expect from someone who is the stunt double for a renowned Hollywood hard man.
