Dwayne Johnson Was Awkward Teenager
THE 44-year-old actor Dwayne Johnson may have been named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine this week but he admits he did not always consider himself attractive, particularly when he was battling acne and trying to establish his own identity.
He said: “I had an awkward phase when I was 13, 14 years old. I was trying to find my identity and trying to settle into my identity. I loved sweets. Every day after school I would go get doughnuts and I would go get cookies.
“I have an adverse reaction to sugar and chocolate, where I would break out in all these pimples. You could just imagine that, with my curly half-Afro.”
The WWE star who has daughter Simone, 15, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia, and 11-month-old Jasmine with girlfriend Lauren Hashian admits learning to accept himself for who he is took some time but when he finally did, he had the “greatest and best breakthrough” he is ever experienced.
