You had us at moustache.
As if we couldn’t love The Rock any more than we already do, this picture of himself aged 16 (going on 26) just seals the deal.
The ever-game Dwayne Johnson posted this shot on his Instagram page yesterday for the weekly phenomenon that is Throwback Thursday.
“#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil’ trouble with the law,” he wrote.
“I was also 6’4 225lbs, rockin’ a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn ‘stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child.
“Plus in Nashville I was already hanging’ out in hokey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin’ cars from crackheads.
“Yup, one of the many reasons why I’m a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty’s ass early in life.”
“God bless Samoan and black genetics… And God bless our teenage years… And WTF was I thinking with this mustache.”
You were thinking ‘this looks AMAZING’, and you’d be damned right.
The picture stands very much on a par with this gem that he posted last year, complete with gold chain, polo neck and bum bag.
“Fanny pack and lean take it to a whole other level,” he wrote.
They sure do.
