Dwayne Johnson Reveals the Advice He’d Give His 13-Year-Old Self

by Kati Michelle

To call Dwayne Johnson successful might be the understatement of the year. He took the WWE world by storm back in his days as “The Rock” and even went on to earn a Guinness World Record for his acting ventures thereafter. That honor actually came back in 2002 for his role in “The Scorpion King” and his career hasn’t really slowed down since. The star recently launched a tequila brand that boasts a secret tribute to his daughters as his “Red Notice” project with Ryan Reynolds became the most streamed film in all of Netflix’s history.

That doesn’t mean it was all sunshine and sprinkles, though. You might even be surprised to find out that by the age of 17, Johnson had already encountered more than a few run-ins with the authorities. His rap sheet included arrests for alleged theft, check fraud, and physical altercations. But they always say that hindsight is 20/20, so the actor just revealed the advice he’d give his younger self in a recent Instagram post.

One of These is Not Like the Others When it Comes to Dwayne Johnson’s List of Advice

Here are the three bits of advice that Dwayne Johnson came up with for his 13-year-old self. You don’t have to be a particularly good sleuth to notice that one of these is not like the others.

Check it out:

The photo is adorably geeky channeling “Napoleon Dynamite” vibes but the advice is worth paying attention to. Number one relays “have fun” and gets us off to a great start. Number two then reminds us to “work hard,” but notice how it falls lower on the list. That’s probably because the age-old adage rings true: “All work and no play makes [Dwayne the Rock] Johnny a dull boy.”

Number three on the list takes a little departure into the unexpected. We’ll probably just have to trust Dwayne Johnson on this one.

Breaking Down His Comment Section

Whenever his alleged “foe” Vin Diesel makes a social media post, the comments almost immediately fill up with the word “family” in reference to a viral “Fast and Furious” meme. It seems Dwayne Johnson is now experiencing similar effects with his connections to the famous “Fortnite” video game. Several comments on Johnson’s Instagram post above reference him as “the guy from ‘Fortnite.'”

A little lost? No worries, we’ve got the breakdown. The fictional “Fortnite” world tells a story just like any TV or book series and just dropped the ending of Chapter Two earlier today. Dwayne Johnson hilariously made an appearance as a cartoon which you can see here:
