What an incredible and humbling experience to meet @teamglas, a man who truly shows us that you can achieve any goal and surmount any obstacle- all you need is belief in yourself. Thank you Jeff for your inspiration. #Repost@therock
Before our #SKYSCRAPER trailer launch during the #SuperBowl, it’s with boundless gratitude and humility I introduce you to this man @teamglas who inspired me to take on this role.
The first American amputee to climb Mt Everest, Mr. Jeff Glasbrenner.
Being that my character in the movie has only one leg, I knew when I said “yes” to this role, it would be the biggest challenge of my career and most significant because of the community I would represent.
I realized thru this entire process that there’s no way I could ever truly understand what it’s like to be an amputee unless I had been one myself.
I’m grateful that Jeff gave me the motivation & psychology to fully immerse myself in the role and for that I gave him my word that every one of my actions in this movie would be from my gut, mind and heart.
With so much respect, I thank you brother for everything and I hope I make you proud.
And thank you for the words I’ll never forget that you shared with me when you first lost your leg... “you can choose to be powerful or you can choose to be pitiful, but you can’t be both”.... Amen. #JeffGlasbrenner#Inspiration#SKYSCRAPER SUMMER 2018
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we’d like to take a moment to celebrate all the powerful things he fought and stood for: equality, love, justice, truth, and above all, hope. Thank you Dr. King for dreaming a dream, inspiring a nation, and changing the world. So, out of respect, do not let anyone ever limit your imagination. And never lose hope. MLK showed all of us that our dreams truly have the power to change the world.
I know, I know...I thought the same thing. How is Dwayne @therock Johnson just getting his star on The Walk of Fame now!? Well, as we all know he has already earned this many times over, but the timing now couldn’t be more perfect and appropriate. Dwayne has surpassed movie star status & has cemented his place in history as a true global icon. This goes far beyond his astronomical box office success. What makes him so wildly unique isn’t just the combination of his immense talent, his brilliant creative instincts, his unparalleled work ethic, his thoughtfulness, his authenticity, his genuine humility and I'll admit- his dashing good looks! It's his massive love and gratitude for his team (@danygarciaco@hhgarcia41@bslater9@jzhodes), his friends, his family and for the best fans in the world!! That gratefulness puts Dwayne over the top and why there is no one like him or more loved than him. I was beyond honored & tremendously humbled to be a guest at Dwayne’s star ceremony. It was a true career highlight to witness his inspiring & heartfelt speech, see him be saluted properly and watch him answer the question, "what does it all mean?" Do yourself a favor and watch his powerful, compelling & honest speech, and I challenge you not to be immediately inspired or cry like a baby. I didn’t of course...well maybe a few tears snuck out. It all began for Seven Bucks and FPC on New Line Cinema's global hit “Journey 2: Mysterious Island” and what an incredible, epic and life changing journey it’s been ever since-- six movies, prepping the seventh & counting! THANK YOU Dwayne Johnson, as your partner, your lifelong friend and your brother. Thank you for being you, and always listening to your heart and gut. Congratulations on this extraordinary honor. You absolutely deserve this & all the wonderful things that have come to you and will continue to come to you. The world has never met anyone like you, and it’s why you are a true national treasure. Cheers to not just changing the game, but to always changing the way the game is played. Big John Wayne hugs from me (Beau) and your FPC family @mswendyjane@scotify! #WhatAYear2017HasBeenForDJ
Even through all the tragic fires this week, Los Angeles stands proud. I’m so impressed with the spirit of Angelenos and their ability to adapt and overcome. Also eternally grateful to the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to fighting fires and protecting our beautiful land. Thank you for your many sacrifices and thank you to all the volunteer firefighters who have rallied to the cause during California’s worst fire season on record. Praying for those who have lost their homes and for the lives lost of both humans and animals. We are California Strong!
