The bromance between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Irish actor Barry Keoghan is continuing - after the superstar congratulated the Dubliner on his latest movie role. 

Johnson sent his best wishes to Keoghan via Instagram when the first trailer dropped for Eternals, the Marvel blockbuster in which the Irishman will star.

The movie star was one of the first to offer his congratulations when Keoghan shared the trailer on social media, writing “Congrats brother! Looks huge!! Teremana is ready.” Teremana refers to Johnson’s own tequila brand.

The Irishman replied: “Awh thank you brother can’t wait for you to see this one.” Johnson responded: “Nice glasses of Teremana to be had bro!”

The Dubliner was starstruck when he and Johnson first met at the announcement of the movie in 2019.

The young actor later told in an interview how he was such a big fan that he couldn’t speak.

The Rock shared this on Twitter, adding: “Barry literally wouldn’t talk to me. Just kept walking in circles saying, 'no no no no no no no'. But we finally got our pic and shared some kind words. Great dude and I’m rooting for his success!” The two have remained in contact since.
