5 year old Kiwi kid Angelou has caught the attention of one of Hollywood's biggest names!

In a heartbreaking video released last week, Angelou made a plea to Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. He asked the actor to show his support towards the end of violence. Now the star has responded...

"A bit emotional watching this 5yr old little boy speak to me." he wrote on Instagram.

"Angelou, It’s Uncle Rock. Yes, I’m you’re “uncle” because of course, all us Samoans are related."

"I’m very proud of you, son. You don’t understand yet, because you’re too young but just know how courageous and inspiring you are to myself and our AIGA, but now - to the world."

"I admire your father, greatly for standing up and creating @sheisnotyourrehab. And to make sure his mom - your Nana - will never be forgotten. Encouraging men all over the world to treat our women with respect, love and most importantly, violence free."

"The way you sit in your Nana’s arms as she speaks to you is the exact same way I would sit in my grandma’s arms when I was your age, while said her prayers in Samoan to God, and then she’d talk to me afterwards just like she talks to you."

"She would tell me the exact same things your Nana is telling you.
Listen to her. And always remember her words."

"You stay strong, Angelou and keep listening to your Nana and your parents. One day you will become the leader of your aiga and also a leader the world will admire."

"And tell your sister to stop showing you pictures of me wearing a fanny pack!!!!"

He ended his message by sending love to Angelou and his family, and even mentioned that his office are trying to make contact with the Kiwi kid!
