Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have bonded again in sweet tweets over Johnson’s NFL comedy “Ballers” on HBO.
The program may seem like a surprise favorite for the Democratic presidential candidate. But the senator gushed that she “can’t wait” for the premiere Sunday of the series’ fifth — and final — season. She also sent “congrats” to The Rock on his marriage.
The 47-year-old wrestler-turned-action star and longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian, 34, were married a week ago. The couple, who met in 2006 on the set of “Game Plan,” have two young daughters.
Johnson tweeted back: “Mahalo, my ballin’ friend. It’s been a helluva run and I’m grateful to the people.” He thanked Warren for the marriage “well wishes” — and “for all your hard work on behalf of our country. ”
Warren and Johnson’s special “Ballers” link popped up two years ago. Before the fourth season premiere last year, Warren posted part of an interview when she explained what drew her to the show.“Ohh,” she explained, it’s “The Rock.”
Johnson thanked Warren then for “the love” and promised her a “big Rock-sized hug coming when I see ya.”
Earlier this year, Warren tweeted that she keeps a signed “Ballers” script from her “not so secret crush” on her desk as a reminder to “stay ballin’.”
