Dwayne The Rock Johnson hailed Rebecca Ferguson as his 'guardian angel from heaven on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old actor's comment followed revelations from the 40-year-old Swedish actress about being shouted at and brought to tears by a former film co-star. 

Dwayne voiced his support for Rebecca, commending her for bravely confronting the situation.

He wrote on social media platform X: 'Hate seeing this but love seeing her stand up to bulls**t. Rebecca was my guardian angel sent from heaven on our set. I love that woman. I’d like to find out who did this.'

Dune star Rebecca revealed that a former film co-star 'screamed' at her and left her walking off set crying.

The Swedish actress, 40, opened up about life on set as a younger star when she appeared on Tuesday's episode of the Reign with Josh Smith podcast.

During the podcast, Rebecca revealed that there is one 'absolute idiot of a co-star' she will never work with again after how they treated her on the set of a previous film - but confirmed it was not Hugh Jackman or Tom Cruise , who she acted alongside in The Greatest Showman and Mission Impossible.

'I remember there was a moment and this human being was being so insecure and angry because this person couldn't get the scenes out,' she said. 'And I think I was so vulnerable and uncomfortable that I got screamed at.

'But because this person was number one on a call sheet, there was no safety net for me. So no one had my back. And I would cry walking off set.'

Rebecca recalled that the co-star would say things to her on set like 'You call yourself an actor?', 'This is what I have to work with?', and 'What the f**k is this?,' in front of the whole crew.

'I stood there just breaking,' she said.
