Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Posts a Shocking Throwback Pic From When He Was 15

Oh, perhaps you hadn’t heard? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is easy on the eyes. Really easy on the eyes. The crazy thing is that when he was just 15 years old, he already looked like an adult — as evidenced by the throwback photo The Rock posted on Friday.

In the vintage snapshot taken when he was in high school, Johnson sits at a desk whose surface is taken up mostly by an old-school boom box. (Hey, it was the ‘80s!) He’s shirtless and rocking a gold chain — and a ‘stache. We bet the other high school boys were befuddled, to say the least.

In fact, his peers — and teachers! — apparently thought he was a narc, because he really didn’t look like other 15-year-olds. As Johnson put it, “#Flashbackfriday to that special time when I was a 15yr old punk kid, 6’4, barely 200lbs, creepy mustache and forced to leave Hawai’i to live in Nashville, TN – where I just enrolled in a new high school – and EVERYONE (students and teachers) treated me like I had the plague and stayed away because they were all convinced I was an undercover cop. True story.”

The Rock’s Instagram is full of treasures beyond this one. Consider that he regularly uses it to share snaps with his family, including tea time with his daughter. (Don’t worry, he only spiked his own teacup.)

He also recently used his Instagram platform to share photos from his top-secret Hawaii wedding, which had a sweet down-home vibe, tons of details created by hand, and a Pinterest-worthy rainbow-topped wedding cake. He’s come a long way from his high school days — but we bet he’d still be able to rock a ‘stache!
