Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson overcame insurmountable odds to become one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors.
The wrestler turned box office king opened up to Express about his struggle with depression before becoming famous.
“Struggle and pain is real,” he said. “I was devastated and depressed.”
Johnson’s journey includes being so badly injured he couldn’t compete in the NFL and then later being cut from the Canadian Football League. Heart pain followed professional pain, with his then girlfriend breaking it off with him.
Despite these lows, Johnson describes his worst moment at just 15 years old, when he had to save his mother from committing suicide.
“She got out of the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic,” Johnson said. “I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road.”
Johnson revealed those dark days are now long behind the mother-son pair.
