I've said it before and I'll say it again. Dwayne Johnson, better known as "The Rock" can pretty much do no wrong. The man is incredibly buff, handsome, a solid actor, and one of the hardest working people in show business. Plus, besides all that, he is probably one of the coolest and nicest A-Listers that exists, period.

Check out this story of a distracted Rock accidentally side-swiping a truck's mirror, followed by the guy who's mirror got side-swiped being more interested in the fact that it was The Rock than the damage to his car. Read the description to see how these two became bros almost instantaneously.

Here's a fun story to start your week off... I'm driving to set in my pick up truck - music blasting - I'm singing away like I'm having a one man party in my truck - then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, "Aw shit.. someone's not gonna be happy..". I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said "Sir, is this your truck?". He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and "Yes it is. Why?". I said "Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I'll leave you mine and I'll take care of everything". He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said.."Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?". I said "Yup". He broke out into a huge smile and said "Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!". I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we're both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol' crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you're gonna run into... and sure as hell never know who's truck you're gonna sideswipe while driving to work.

Awesome story. It sounds like one of those moments in life that is hard to replicate. It truly seems like it was a hilarious encounter, and the two of them were able to bond over it. The only gripe I have is that if I was the dude who's car was damaged I would GLADLY let The Rock pay for the repairs. But alas.

Check out these 5 other reasons we love this man:

1) He's got love for his family

The Rock is a family man. He understands how much work his mom put in to give him the opportunities that got him to where he is, so he got her a car and it looks like she was pretty thrilled by the gesture of love from her son.

2) The Rock doesn't mind getting goofy

The Rock wore a onesie on national television on Live With Kelly and Michael and performed "Here Comes Santa Claus". I used to get nervous performing Christmas Carols in elementary school; I wonder how I would fair in front of the entire country!

3) He's essentially a real life superhero

If you stop and think about it, the Fast and Furious movies are pretty much superhero movies, what with the ridiculousness of all the stunts. But The Rock has actually penned a contract to play Black Adam in Shazam because why not be a real superhuman, too?

4) The Rock actually seems excited to meet his fans

The Rock has mastered the selfie at this point, and he seems to thoroughly understand his role in fans' lives as the indisputable number one wrestler-turned-actor in history. I think there's something to be said for a guy who's that big who also has such a kind heart.

5) The Rock photobombed this dude

This kind of thing isn't out of the norm for The Rock.

I'm kind of super excited for the HBO show Ballers that The Rock is on, which airs this Sunday. Basically, The Rock plays a retired NFL player turned sports agent and I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be epic.
