Dwayne Johnson Says People Thought He Was “A Little Girl” When He was 7 Years Old

Once upon a time, people thought Dwayne Johnson was a girl.

The actor shared this during a new discussion with Sunday Today with Willie Geist, in which he elaborated on what it was like to have “soft features” growing up as a young one, especially as a young kid who moved around often.

“I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, ‘Can I ask you something?’” Johnson recalled of his first day in the fifth grade. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’”

And this was so common for him.

“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,” Johnson said.

He explores some of the moments in his childhood in his new show, “Young Rock,” which first aired in February.

“I have had a Forrest Gump-ian childhood growing up,” Johnson said. “Wrestling in the ‘80s and in the ‘70s was way different than it is today. A lot of the times, including my father, the wrestlers would live paycheck to paycheck.”
