The Rock may be making billions for Hollywood, but it wasn't always sunshine and roses for him.  There was a time period before he got into wrestling but after he realized professional football was not in his future when...

"I didn't want to go anywhere. I was crying constantly. Eventually you reach a point where you are all cried out."

That was when he took control of his life and decided it was time to make a change.  The legend of The Rock was born. 

In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Dwayne Johnson opens up about a lot of things in his life.  This is truly a great read.  I continue to believe that he and I would be great friends.

One of the pieces that grabbed my attention was when he addressed the death of Paul Walker.  The two starred together in the last two Fast and Furious movies. 

"I was driving with Lauren when she immediately turned very quiet and was looking at me, studying, wondering if I knew.  I pulled over and looked at my messages and had a moment where I just caught my breath. We said a prayer right then to give his daughter strength — because we had talked about our daughters."

Apparently their children is where the two of them found a connection.

"That's what we would talk about. Both of us were divorced, and we talked about the power of being a dad and the strong connection of a dad and his girl. Then once we got home, we started bawling."

It's easy to look at The Rock and see just one thing.  But, he's so much more than that.  I know you'll find this interview very interesting.  Read the full story HERE.
