Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may have just killed Instagram.
The 43-year-old shared a dated black-and-white yearbook photo of himself, but he looks more like a grown man with a mortgage and two kids than a 16-year-old boy.
Johnson said by the time he was 16 he had enrolled in four different high schools — one in Honolulu, two in Tennessee and one in Pennsylvania — after being evicted and in trouble with the law.
At 16, he stood 6’4″ and weighed 225 pounds. He was also “rockin’ a dead caterpillar” on his upper lip.
#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.. 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. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin’ out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin’ cars from crackheads. 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 ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache
Because of his mature looks, all his classmates thought he was an undercover cop.
