Yesterday, Dwayne Johnson revealed that he, his wife, and two youngest daughters had tested positive for COVID-19 after being around family friends. And though they had been sick, they were feeling better after almost three weeks.
“I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now. So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19,” the actor said in a video message posted on his Instagram. “I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well.”
“I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut,” he said. “But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy.” He added that his family has “gotten through COVID-19 stronger and healthier.”
In related news, Robert Pattinson has also tested positive for the coronavirus, causing filming of The Batman to be halted just days cast and crew resumed work at studios outside of London.
Warner Bros. would not comment on any individual worker’s health, sharing only this statement: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.” Vanity Fair confirmed through other highly placed sources that Pattinson was the individual who became sick.
