Like a good neighbor, The Rock is there!
On Monday, Dwayne Johnson shared a very funny story on his Instagram, which showed how nice people are in the wake of an accident — if you're a famous celebrity!
The San Andreas star was on his way to set in Massachusetts, jamming out in his car as we all do on our morning commute. Though the 43-year-old jammed a little too hard when he sideswiped a parked car!

But the car owner didn't get mad after getting damaged by the famous wrestler. In fact, his reaction was the complete opposite! The star captioned in his post:
"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.."."
For most of us, that's usually the case. But being The Rock has it's perks! He continued:
"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". "
What a nice guy! Some celebs wouldn't have even turned around, let alone offer to pay for the damages! But the story ends in a not-so-surprising twist:
"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."
What a great story! We hope The Rock damages our personal property as well if it means we can share a belly laugh with him!
Sideswiping or not, Johnson seems like one of the nicest celebs around!
