Among many bromances of Hollywood, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are a unique pair. Whenever they get a chance, the pair make sure to pull each other’s legs. Recently, Johnson made a joke about Hart’s height in the acceptance speech.
From their first film together, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart formed a close bond
Although they met a few years prior at an award ceremony, Johnson and Hart appeared on-screen in 2016 in Central Intelligence. However, their fans were in for a treat when they reunited on-screen the next year in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. In order to pull pranks on each other, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have created an on-going fake feud. Not only that, but both actors also have funny nicknames for each other too. While Johnson calls him Snack-Sized Denzel, Hart refers to him as DJ. During interviews, they both never miss a chance to impersonate each other. While talking about their friendship, Johnson said:
“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. If we never do another movie again, then I know I got a brother for life who I have this crazy chemistry with.”
While accepting his award for Kid’s Choice Awards, Johnson made fun of Hart’s height
Due to coronavirus pandemic, the actual ceremony of Kid’s Choice Awards was canceled. For some time, it seemed that there would be no awards this year. However, all the stars and celebrities decided to come together remotely and hold a ceremony for their fans online. Broadcasting from her home, the event was hosted by Victoria Justice. The award categories were the same.
While Ariana Grande won the award for Favorite Female Artist, Dwayne Johnson won the Favorite Movie Star award. During his acceptance speech, Dwayne Johnson thanked his fans and said:
“Hey, kids all around the world, I want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for voting for me. And I also want to thank and commend the Kids’ Choice Awards for using this broadcast to raise really critical awareness for child hunger. So, well done to you guys.”
Furthermore, he poked fun at his long-time friend, Kevin Hart’s height and said:
“I want you to stay positive; I want you to stay happy; I want you to stay healthy; I want you to go to bed tonight feeling great. Because however old you are, around the world, just know that you are still bigger than Kevin Hart.”
Johnson won the award for Jumanji and Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw.
