Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Jokes About High School Classmates Thinking He Was An 'Undercover Cop'
"All the lovely ladies stayed far away from me" in high school, Johnson revealed on Twitter Friday
After Page Six posted a video that shared details of Johnson’s high school life, including that he had attended four high schools in three different states by the time he was 16, Johnson, now 46, retweeted the story on his own Twitter timeline.
“Nice trip down memory lane,” Johnson said of the video on Friday. “And yes, very true story when I moved from Hawaii to Nashville, I was already 6’4 225lbs with a pornstache at 15yrs old — and the students in my new high school thought I was an undercover cop.”
“All the lovely ladies stayed far away from me,” he added, next to a crying emoji.
Johnson has been open about his early years before. In 2015, he shared a high school photo to Instagram in an epic Throwback Thursday post.
“TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil’ trouble with the law,” he wrote. “McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glencliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6’4 225lbs, rockin’ a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn ‘stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child.”
“Yup, one of the many reasons why I’m a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty’s a— early in life,” he continued.
The actor added the hashtags #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics, #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears and #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache.
Johnson no longer has to worry about getting a date: Today, the actor is with girlfriend Lauren Hashian, 34. The couple shares two daughters: Jasmine Lia, 3, and Tiana Gia, 10 months. Johnson also shares his 17-year-old daughter Simone Garcia Johnson with his ex Dany Garcia, 50.
On Valentine’s Day, Johnson made a special trip to see Simone. “Flew from LA to Miami so I could spend an awesome afternoon and lovely dinner with my #1 Valentine @simonegjohnson,” he captioned a photo of himself on a luxurious plane.
Johnson went on to share that although the trip meant he got very “little sleep,” it was “so well worth our invaluable and fun father/daughter time.”
“SO PROUD of her and that apple sure didn’t fall far from this tree,” he added. “Dropped her off, gave her a massive bear hug and back on the bird to get to work.”
Continuing, he wrote, “a special Valentines and now excuse me while I get crazy and bring new meaning to the term ‘mile high club’ by goin’ to town on my chicken and pasta,” adding the hashtags “fatherdaughter” and “grateful.”
