Who's bald and loves tequila? That's a trick question — it's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jeff Bezos.

The two moguls, pals, and sometimes-business associates discussed their friendship onstage at the People's Choice Awards Tuesday night. Bezos, the founder and executive chairman of Amazon, presented Johnson with the People's Champion award, honoring Johnson for his committement to kindness.

"You see, kindness is a choice, and what I admire most in Dwayne is his choice to show unwavering kindness to everyone around him," Bezos said onstage.

But Bezos also cracked a few jokes about Johnson, including about his penchant for taking down stacks of pancakes on "cheat days" and about his main resemblance to Bezos himself.

"Listen, there are so many ways to describe Dwayne Johnson: larger than life leaps to mind, extraordinarily talented, the ultimate girl dad, strong, handsome, bald," Bezos said.


He added: "Hey, it's a good look!"

For his part, Johnson thanked Bezos after accepting the award, calling him his "good friend Jeff, my drinking buddy, my tequila-drinking buddy Jeff."

The Bezos-Johnson friendship extends back to at least June, when Johnson posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing an Amazon polo shirt with his arm around Bezos on a beach. The caption teased an upcoming partnership between Amazon Studios and Seven Bucks Production, the production company founded by Johnson and his manager, Dany Garcia.

"Shared passions and always putting in the hard work with our own two hands. I look forward to this one, brother," Johnson wrote, adding that "Teremana is on the way!" in reference to the small-batch tequila company he launched in March 2020.

It was announced soon after that Amazon would develop the Seven Bucks film "Red One," which is slated for a 2023 release. Amazon won the project after a "highly competitive bidding war," according to Deadline. Johnson told Deadline at the time that he's "very bullish on our partnership with Amazon Studios," and Garcia described it as "a long time in the making."
