Although both of them are the best of friends, at a promotion for a film, The Rock was found giving a stern warning to the fans for not encouraging his antics. At the event, Kevin Hart was constantly mimicking The Rock’s gestures and body language hilariously. At first, he sarcastically compared both of their physiques and implied fun. He then further went ahead and said, “I didn’t want people to see this and I didn’t want them to know that I am this much bigger than you. It is not fair to you or your fans.”

He further added, “I come out here standing like this all big and it makes you look just stupid.” The Rock seemed quite surprised by that comment and responded by saying, “Listen, you and I talked about this. You and I go back and forth, and I love you like a brother. I know you love me too, but when we get out here in front of the people, don’t talk like that.”
