Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is known worldwide as one of the most eccentric personalities both on and off-screen today. However, behind that giant grin lies a story of struggle and pain he has never really talked about, until recently. In a report stated by the Sunday Express, Dwayne Johnson talked about fighting depression from an early age when a fan attempted to seek counsel from the superstar. “I have battled that beast more than once,” stated The Rock, who then alluded to a personal story he shared last month on Instagram. In the online post, he talked about how his mother tried to commit suicide when he was 15 years old and how the memory haunts him even today. “It's probably best that she has no recollection of that horrible memory,” he further stated. He admitted that if things were a bit direr, life would have taken a worse turn for him. Fortunately, he keeps on smiling and encourages others to do the same.
