Perhaps what Dwayne Johnson has revealed can help some adolescents who struggle with their stature. The former wrestler is one of the most popular action heroes in the world these days and makes a huge impression just because of his appearance. But that used to be completely different, the giant now revealed in an interview on the show “Sunday Today with Willie Geist”. As a child, he was mistaken for a girl because of his appearance, the 49-year-old said: “I would say that between the ages of 7 and 11 people thought I was a little girl because I had gentle features and a really gentle Afro -Hair.” How did “The Rock” come up with it? Among other things, through an encounter on the school bus that he had in fifth grade: “I sat down next to this boy and within 60 seconds he said: ‘May I ask you something?’ I said yes.’ He asks: ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’ “That was not the first situation in which he was mistaken for a girl.
Youth from “The Rock” is the subject of a new sitcom
