Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

He's faced men built like giants in the ring, but a 10-year-old boy was the first person to ever make The Rock cry in public. The wrestler-turned-actor spent some time with Spud, a young man with degenerative heart disease, who was a big fan of the muscle man's signature moves and phrases. After an unforgettable night, during which Spud and his family sat ringside at a WWE event, the tears were flowing when Spud told his hero, "Thank you, Dwayne. You made an impact on someone's life."
