HOLLYWOOD – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says that people often thought he was a little girl growing up.
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,” said Johnson.
“I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, ‘Can I ask you something?’” said Johnson. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’”
These days, Dwayne Johnson has been fielding questions about a rumored future run for the White House.
In April, a poll of more than 30,000 Americans found that 46 percent of people would consider voting for the “Jumanji” star for president.
“If it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve the people,” he replied to the poll adding that he’d make a bid if that’s “what the people want.”
