But the revelations didn't end there. Reynolds, always ready to sprinkle some humor into the conversation, shared an amusing tidbit about his personal life. In the same interview, our beloved Free Guy disclosed that his daughter has a unique nickname for Dwayne Johnson – Maui. This unusual nickname came about because Reynolds' daughter is a big fan of the character Maui, which Dwayne Johnson voiced in Disney's popular animated movie Moana from 2016. 

Rock and Ryan share a longstanding friendship that dates back to the early 2000s. Their initial encounter took place during a promotional event for their respective movies, coincidentally landing them in Cancun during MTV Spring Break. Since that serendipitous meeting, their bond has only grown stronger, culminating in their collaboration on the film Red Notice as per multiple sources.
