The Rock kicked off his acting career in Hollywood in the year 2001 with the film The Mummy Returns, in which he played the part of The Scorpion King.

Since the moment they met, Priyanka and Dwayne have been in perfect sync with one another.

“I love this woman. And it’s funny because the way Baywatch came to us all, I really feel like it’s kind of this really cool universal energetic thing that happened. And not necessarily with the movie but with the fact of how Priyanka and I got connected. (…) As she came over [to the United States], she was over here, signed with our agency, my agent in particular” said Johnson

”We immediately had that connection. We got on the phone, and we immediately vibed, we share the same DNA, and the same ambition and I knew immediately, not only did I fall in love with her, we had this crazy idea that she would be an amazing villain in Baywatch,” the Rock further added.

Dwayne Johnson is married to music producer Lauren Hashian, while Priyanka Chopra is married to singer Nick Jonas.
