Dwayne Johnson, the former pro wrestler, who is celebrating his 49th birthday on Sunday, said that people he met were often confused by his “soft features” as a child.
“I would say between the ages of 7 and 11, people thought that I was a little girl because I had really soft features and I had really soft Afro hair,” Dwayne Johnson, who is black and Samoan, said on “Sunday Today with Willie Geist.”
Dwayne Johnson, the son of pro wrestler Rocky Johnson, moved around so much as a child that he went to 13 schools by the time he entered high school. He described one memorable moment on the school bus on his first day of fifth grade.
“I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, ‘Can I ask you something?'” said Dwayne Johnson. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?'” Now there is no doubt he is a man! What do you think?
