Dwayne takes full responsibility on this unlikely couple—only under this one specific condition.
Just like the rest of the world, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is rooting for Priyanka Chopra, who he worked with on Baywatch, and Nick Jonas, his co-star in the Jumanji remake, as Hollywood’s most unexpected yet hottest new couple. But it is possible that The Rock played more than just the role of the supportive friend in this relationship.
When asked by a reporter for his though on his co-star’s romance, Johnson responded: “Are they happy?” And after being assured that Chopra and Jonas—or as the internet now likes to call them, Jopra—are very much in a happy relationship, Dwayne joked: “Well then, I take credit. Baywatch and Jumanji. I did it, yes. If they’re happy.”
Ever since they started dating nearly two months ago, people have been crediting the 2017 Met Gala Awards for bringing Priyanka and Nick closer. Others say it’s more likely that their mutual friend, Quantico star Graham Rogers, did the matchmaking. But according to The Rock himself, it is him whom we’ve got to thank for Nick and Priyanka—even if they don’t know it!
Hey Dwayne, do you think there’s a chance you could set me up with your soon-to-be costar Idris Elba? I promise we’ll be very happy together too!
