He might be suave and sophisticated now, but that wasn’t always the case for Dwayne Johnson, who revealed his classmates thought he was an undercover cop as he posted an epic throwback photo. Dwayne shared the picture of ‘The Rock aged 15’ on Instagram, showing his much smaller physique and ‘pornstache’.
He told his followers how he was ostracised by his classmates who were convinced he was an undercover police officer when he moved from Hawaii to Nashville, Tennessee as a teenager. Dwayne, 47, wrote: ‘flashbackfriday to that special time when I was a 15yr old punk kid, 6’4, barely 200lbs, creepy mustache and forced to leave
Hawai’i to live in Nashville, TN – where I just enrolled in a new high school – and EVERYONE (students and teachers) treated me like I had the plague and stayed away because they were all convinced I was an undercover cop. True story.’
‘I had a WILD and unbelievable life and journey as a kid and teenager. Kickin’ puberty’s a** from day 1. #PornstacheJohnson #YoureUnderArrest’.
Now we can kind of see why they may have thought he was an undercover cop given that he was 6’4 and had a moustache at 15 – even if he was yet to bulk up to The Rock size. Fans were quick to comment on the – frankly spectacular – photo to share their disbelief that he looked like a fully grown man at 15.
One wrote: ‘15?!!! It’s fair to say the genetic Gods were kind to you Rock’ and another added: ‘Age 15?? Nah!!! This looks like a family man!!’Others commented: ‘plot twist! The rock is still an undercover cop but just posing as a bada** celebrity!’ and ‘You look younger now!’ The only thing we have to say is thank God he got rid of the ‘tache.
