The 50-year-old actor, Dwayne Johnson in a 2017 interview unveiled his true feelings to the world about his co-star, Priyanka Chopra. The duo had worked together in Seth Gordon-helmed film, Baywatch which was the latter’s debut on the big screen. She was the main antagonist in the film who was critically acclaimed for her character, and most importantly, made a special place in the former’s heart.
During the release of the film, the actor shared his thoughts on the actress stating,
“I love this woman, it’s funny when she came to America… She was over here, signed with our agency, with my agent, we immediately had that connection.”
He continued to share the various connecting dots which made them “immediately” vibe.
“We got on the phone, we immediately vibed, we share the same DNA, the same ambition… Not only did I fall in love with her, but we also had this crazy idea that she would be an amazing villain on Baywatch.”
Speaking about her acting talent in the film, he stated how that antagonist role was initially meant for a male but due to her capabilities, she got the role.
“I think in order to play a villain, the greatest of villains have this great quality and capacity and depth, and that’s exactly what Priyanka has. So it originally was written for a man… It is way cooler if we flip that over and made it a female… With Priyanka, everything is considered, every little detail is considered.”
Not only did he respect her as an actor, but he fell for her due to the instant connection they developed along the way. Hollywood gave her quite many things including her beloved, Nick Jonas, especially at the time when she was struggling.

“In relationships, I kept making the same mistakes. I was with similar guys [who were] a little bit narcissistic.”
