Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has opened up about his secret mental health battle.

The 45-year-old actor, who is known as one of the biggest action heroes in showbiz, has opened up about struggles with his mental health after suffering from depression for decades.

Johnson confessed that the low moods started when he was living in poverty as a child and witnessing his mother Ata attempt suicide when he was just 15-years-old.

“She got out of the car on the interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic. Big rigs and cars were swerving out the way,” he revealed.

“I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road.”

He admits that his mum was in such a state during the attempt that she doesn’t even recall trying to take her own life.
