The Hidden Agony: Dwayne Johnson
In an interview with a leading magazine, Dwayne Johnson spoke about her mother’s attempt to suicide when he was 15 years old. He also revealed that the incident took place when his family got evicted from their apartment, adding his mother got out of the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic. While big rigs and cars were deflecting out of the way, he ran after her, grabbing and pulling her back on the gravel shoulder off the road. Johnson also stated that later, she didn’t bear any recollection of the event whatsoever.
Following the traumatic experience, Johnson said that he went through a period of serious depression of his own.
“I reached a point where I didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere. I was crying constantly.”
