Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's High School Photo Has To Be Seen To Be Believed


And you thought you had it bad in high school.

On Thursday, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson took a walk down memory lane and shared a photo almost as amazing as his fanny pack throwback. And you are going to believe us when we say, you aren't going to believe what he looked like at 16.

Today, the 43-year-old actor has certainly grown into his looks, but back in high school, he claims his classmates thought he was an undercover cop:

therock#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law.. McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glencliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6'4 225lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads. Yup, one of the many reasons why I'm a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty's ass early in life.




All teenagers should take note of that last hashtag, by the way.
