DWAYNE “The Rock” Johnson looked unrecognizable as a teenager to his parents in the topless look he shared on Tuesday.
The WWE legend – then 15 years old – looked completely different with his slim and youthful face in the photo.
The Rock posed with his shirt in a pair of jeans with his arms around his mom Ata and dad Rocky.
The 49-year-old shared the photo to highlight the hardships his family was facing at the time.
“This is a crazy throwback to 1987. My father, Rocky Johnson. My mother, Ata Johnson. I was 15 years old,” the Fast And Furious actor wrote.
“This photo speaks volumes about a time when we all looked pretty miserable. Six months ago we were evicted from HAWAII and forced to move to Tennessee.
“After 3 months, we were forced to leave Tennessee. The story was complicated. We moved to the settlement, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where this photo was taken.
“And I was just suspended from my new school (Freedom High) for fighting. And arrested for theft.”
Dwayne continued: “My old man was under a lot of pressure just to pay the rent. So did my mother. You can see it in their faces.”
“Luckily, I eventually got into a relationship and found a few friends that I started going to the gym with, who eventually became my best friends.
(Nick T & Joey G). “
The Red News star later shared a photo of the cast of Young Rock – the sitcom based on his early years – ahead of the show’s second season premiere.
Dwayne pays tribute to Stacey Leilua and Joseph Lee Anderson, who played his parents, and Bradley Constant, who starred in his youth.
“Love you Stacey, Joseph & Bradley! Thank you for giving us SMILES that we will eventually find on our own,” he wrote.
Dwayne rose to fame as a ten-time WWE world champion, before breaking into the film industry.
The former wrestler is currently in incredible form ahead of the debut of Black Adam in 2022, where he plays the main character of the superhero movie.
He recently shared the “inappropriate” talk he gives himself to stay motivated during training sessions.
“I’m wearing my workout gear, I’m lacing up my shoes, and I’m like, ‘S***, I should just call it a night. No one knows, everyone’s asleep, maybe I’m’ I’ll get it tomorrow.’ “
ROCK’S SIDE STORY
When this happened, Johnson revealed what he does to motivate himself to keep going, as he adds: “I try to remember what it was like when I didn’t have much; those seven dollars a day .
“I try to keep that in mind, and often it’s amusing to me. When I think back to the days of seven dollars and what it took me to get where I am now.
“If that didn’t motivate me, I would ask myself, I would say: ‘How bad do you think you are as a mother *****? How bad do you really think you are? ‘
“And then I would talk to myself like I was going crazy, like, ‘Okay, that’s up to you. You think I’m a terrible mother *****? Come on out. out and prove it.
“” Non followers. Everyone sleeps. No one will know.” Usually, after that I’m fine and I’m saying to myself, ‘F*** you. I’m ready to go.’
“So that’s my answer as much as it’s inappropriate and sorry for the kids watching in the language I used, but that’s what I say to myself.”
