    Dwyane Johnson has often expressed his love for the Hollywood sensation Clint Eastwood. He even mentioned how much the actor has influenced his acting style. However, his recent DC movie ‘Black Adam’ has been greatly influenced by Clint Eastwood’s movies. 

    The Rock talked about how Eastwood influenced ‘Black Adam’ in one of his interviews. “Clint Eastwood is my favorite actor of all time, and those early cowboy westerns and Dirty Harry 2 were my favorites. Our director Jaume Collet-Serra said, ‘why don’t we in the spirit of disrupting, we don’t we make the Dirty Harry of the DC universe.’ 

    The Fast X actor added, “And in that spirit would create a lot of dialogue philosophically about what makes a superhero a superhero and what makes a supervillain a supervillain, and what makes a protector a champion of the people.”

    But as we all know, ‘Black Adam’ became another one of DC’s epic fails. The movie did not find favor with critics or audiences. It only made $393 million worldwide and became a box office failure.

    Like all of us, Dwyane Johnson also had a starstruck moment when seeing his idol Clint Eastwood on the red carpet. “We were at the Oscars and I was doing red carpet and when I was done with an interview, I turn around and there he is, he’s walking in with his wife… I was like, ‘Oh man, this is it.’ And then I froze. I completely froze. I completely froze. I couldn’t pull the trigger… I looked at his wife; she smiled, I smiled at her… I didn’t meet him,” recounted the Rock. 

    However, Johnson did not let it rest there. He wanted to express his gratitude, love and respect for the legendary actor-director. So Dwayne Johnson wrote Eastwood a letter. In his letter he expressed his admiration for the actor. He even tweeted the letter on his social media.
