Dwayne The Rock Johnson talks about his struggle with depression after seeing his mother try to commit suicide. SAD!
The actor, 45 years, currently one of the great action heroes in movies, has spoken for the first time about his mental health and his struggle with depression for decades.
He said, “Struggle and pain is real. I was devastated and depressed.”
The Rock confessed that this sad period started when he was living in poverty as a child – and he witnessed his mother, Ata, try to commit suicide when he was 15 years old. They had been thrown out of the house where they lived.
Talking with Express, Dwayne revealed:
“She stepped out of the car on interstate 65 in Nashville and began to walk against the traffic.”
“The trucks and cars strayed from the road. I grabbed her and I pulled her back to the sideroad.”
Johnson admitted that his mom was in such a state during that attempt that she has no recollection of it.
“She has no memories of that whatsoever. This is probably for the best.”
Recalling that incident as the worst moment for him, Dwayne added:
“I got to a point where i did not want to do anything or go anywhere. I was crying constantly.”
“we should always do the best to pay attention when other people are suffering. We have to help and remind them that they are not alone.”
Dwayne Johnson and his partner Lauren Hashian are expecting their second daughter. The couple has been together since 2006 and has a 2-year-old daughter named Jasmine.
