Dwayne Johnson Talks about His Fight with Depression

June 19, 2014 Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson, wrestler turned actor speaks to The Hollywood Reporter (June 27 issue) that he's had his fair share of struggles in the past.

"I didn't want to do a thing," he recalled. "I didn't want to go anywhere. I was crying constantly. Eventually you reach a point where you are all cried out."

After attempting to overcome numerous obstacles as a young boy, The Rock decided to turn things around, and at 18, he won a full football scholarship to the University of Miami and was ecstatic when he was the only freshman chosen to play, something very rare in college football.

However, he began to sustain multiple injuries and ended up dropping out of school without even taking his midterms. Johnson saw himself going into a downward spiral again, until his coach called and set him straight. "He says, 'Get your ass in a car and come back right now.' He was so embarrassed and pissed. It's one thing when you go through an injury and depression. It's another when you walk away and say, 'F it.' "
