Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Opens Up About His Battles With Depression

"You're not alone", he wrote compassionately. "Depression never discriminates", the actor has recently tweeted.

Dwayne Johnson: "Us guys do have this tendency to hold it in, and we don't feel comfortable talking about our feelings". While the research is somewhat scattered, current estimates suggest 10% of men living in the USA struggle with this mental health issue. "Struggle and pain are real. I was crying constantly", the actor said.

He went on: 'We're grateful to you all and if you ever need anything, I got your back'. He's been suffering for decades, stemming from his early life and growing up in poverty.

He went on to tell the story of how his mother, Ata, tried to commit suicide in front of him when he was only 15, months after they got evicted from their house.

"She got out of the vehicle on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic", he said in an interview with the Express.

He said: "It was amusing - we were having dinner with Emily Blunt, who I'm getting ready to work with, and I said, 'What do you think of Tia?' And she went - beat, beat, beat - 'No one's gonna f**k with a Tia Johnson'".

"What's insane about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn't", he added.

Ravens sign QB Griffin to one-year deal
ESPN's Jamison Hensley tweeted that Griffin "was initially brought in by the Ravens to throw to some receivers during a workout". In 2015, Griffin fell to third on the Redskins depth chart and remained inactive during the regular season.

The former wrestler previously opened up about that incident during a 2015 episode of "Oprah's Master Class" where he went into more detail.

The actor said his low mood stemmed from his years living in poverty in Asia and when he witnessed his mother's suicide attempt.

After his parents left their home in one vehicle, he followed them in another auto. "I was just struggling, man".

'The word is fr- I can't say the word!' "Horns were blowing, and cars were swerving out of the way".

Still, the "Rampage" star told the Express that since then he and his mother have both overcome depression.

In the photo, Johnson can be seen shooting an emotional scene from the HBO show "Ballers", which he says reminded him that "we always gotta do our best to really pay attention when people are in pain". He didn't reveal what was wrong was her, but said she was all right and thanked the medical professionals who helped them.
