While nothing is hidden from The Rock’s fans, in an interview recently, the actor opened up about his childhood days. The Fast and Furious actor spoke about the time when people thought he was a little girl when growing up. He recalled being asked by a classmate if he was a girl, on the first day of fifth grade.
Speaking with Willie Geist on Sunday Today, Dwayne Johnson revealed that he was often mistaken for a girl during his childhood. Talking about it, he further said, "I would say between the ages of 7 and 11, people thought that I was a little girl because I had really soft features and I had really soft Afro hair.”
The Jumani: The Next Level actor even recalled one awkward encounter that happened during his first day of fifth grade. Johnson mentioned the incident took place on a school bus. Recalling the awkward moment, The Rock shared, “I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, 'Can I ask you something?'" He continued to share, "I said, 'Yeah.' He goes, 'Are you a boy or a girl?'"
Meanwhile, during the interview, the Jungle Cruise actor revealed he had a “Forrest Gump-ian childhood growing up”. Due to The Rock’s dad Rocky Johnson’s wrestling career, the actor had to move around quite a lot during his early days. Johnson has attended 13 different schools by the time he entered high school.
