Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson takes time out of his very insane schedule for interactions with fans from time to time. For this particular fan, he makes the exception on occasion.

Johnson made some time to celebrate a grandma’s 103rd birthday. It’s become a yearly tradition for the movie star to sing happy birthday to superfan Marie Grover. She gets some special privileges, which include this yearly serenade. 

Jamie Klingler has been organizing these special moments on social media for years now. Fans of the megastar just love seeing the senior citizen getting to interact with her favorite superstar. 

Johnson seems to get a pretty big kick out of the whole ordeal as well. A while ago he sent her some of his brand tequila because over a century old she’s earned it!


Life moves fast, but this is our reminder to slow down and enjoy Every. Single. Moment. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA GROVER!! A beautiful and inspiring 103!! We’re all grateful you were born and love the Rock doll!! I’m mean “action figure” cos you know I’m a tough guy

Klingler is not Grover’s granddaughter, but nothing more than a friend of the family. She explained how this started in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine

“When we were 15 [years old] and trick-or-treating in Fox Chase, she would have on a ‘Rock’ sweatshirt,” Klingler began. “She’s loved him since 1994. She’d be like, ‘He’s so handsome,’ and we’d watch a movie and it wouldn’t be very good, and she’d be like, ‘It’d be much better if they put ‘The Rock’ in it.'”

“The guy at the corner store bought her a birthday cake and said, ‘I saw ‘The Rock!’,” Klingler added. “Making a 100-year-old go viral is pretty amusing for all of us involved. Her daughter said she’s loving the attention and has been so perked up and having a blast and just can’t stop laughing. We’re so touched by [Johnson’s] generosity and how sweet it was. It really has been an incredible week for her.”

The Rock obviously loves his fans, and this is a sure sign of that. We’ll have to see what his situation is with WWE in a few months, but at least we know he has a 103-year-old grandmother super fan rooting him on at home.
