Dwayne Johnson reveals past mental health struggles, shares why 'depression doesn't discriminate'

In an interview with the Express, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson spoke candidly about his personal mental health struggles.

According to the Rampage star, his “absolute worst time” came after his dreams of pursuing a football career crumbled — he was cut from the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders in 1995 — and his girlfriend ended their relationship. The actor’s frank discussion about depression has been applauded for raising awareness about mental health struggles, particularly amongst men. As Johnson noted in a tweet, “us dudes have a tendency to keep it in.”
