Awww, I love Dwayne Johnson — I think he’s such a nice, caring & amazing celebrity.  I was surprised to see this story because you wouldn’t think he would have battled with something like … depression.  You just never know whats going on in someone’s life.
Hit the jump for the report…



Via ETonline:

Before he was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, this Pain & Gain actor had hit rock bottom. The wrestler-turned-actor tells The Hollywood Reporter that he battled with depression at a time when nothing seemed to be going right in his life.

Johnson recalls his dream of becoming a professional football player, but says that while on full scholarship at the University of Miami at age 18, he sustained numerous injuries. The 42-year-oldHercules star says it was then that he started becoming depressed. “I didn’t know what it was. I didn’t know why I didn’t want to do anything. I had never experienced anything like that.”

Instead of getting into the NFL, Johnson began playing for the Canadian Football League where his depression got worse when he was cut from the team. “The dreams I had, they’re dashed. There is no more football. My relationship was crushed. That was my absolute worst time.”

He recalled to THR, “I didn’t want to do a thing. I didn’t want to go anywhere. I was crying constantly. Eventually you reach a point where you are all cried out.”
