  • Dwayne Johnson said he is "grateful" to both the action stars
  • Johnson referred to Stallone and Schwarzenegger as "KINGS"
  • He recalled how they were "supportive" when he first broke into Hollywood

It may not be easy to break into Hollywood but Dwayne Johnson has been quite lucky there as he got support from two popular action heroes — Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger — in his initial stages.

Johnson shared a video clip on Instagram on Tuesday from the "Young Rock" sitcom, which is based on Johnson's real-life.

"TONIGHT on #YoungRock, I settle the most powerful question of ALL ACTION HERO questions... STALLONE or SCHWARZENEGGER?" he captioned it.

"Sly and Arnold were MY HEROES growing up and I will forever be GRATEFUL to them both for being so incredibly kind and supportive of me and my career when I first broke into Hollywood," he added. "@officialslystallone & @schwarzenegger will always be the KINGS and I just got to be the lucky SOB they welcomed to stand on their shoulders."

Besides thanking the two action heroes, the 48-year-old actor also announced his birthday plans.

"To celebrate my 897th birthdayT-Rexfrom May 1st - May 5th our @teremana is giving $1 MILLION BUCKS to our local restaurants to help them get back on their feet," he tweeted Tuesday. "GO TO Right pointing backhand index http://GuacOnTheRock.com to find out where to enjoy Teremana, great food & your free #GuacOnTheRock."

Johnson is busy training for his most awaited movie, "Black Adam," and has been constantly posting updates about it on social media. Last month, the former professional wrestler shared a video of Times Square in New York City.

"A disruptive and unstoppable global force of a message from the man in black himself," he captioned the clip. "BLACK ADAM is coming July 29, 2022. The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change."

Stallone will be next seen in the highly anticipated movie "The Suicide Squad," which is slated to release on Aug. 6. The movie stars Pete Davidson, Margot Robbie and John Cena in key roles. He will also play the lead character in the sci-fi drama "Samaritan," which will release on June 4.

Schwarzenegger's upcoming project is "Kung Fury 2." The movie, which is in post-production, was supposed to release last year but it got delayed due to the pandemic.
