In the accompanying article Dwayne Johnson talks about his struggles with depression.
damn he look good
omg that chicken pox scar on his cheekbone *passes out*
uh can we focus on how fucking momentous this is? we have so few men in hollywood actually opening up this widely about their struggles with depression, so few instances of men talking about depression that ACTUALLY gets attention
and this isn’t coming from a “sensitive poet” type like a musician. male musicians frequently touch on things like depression, but when was the last time you had a former wrestler – a PRIME ATHLETE – openly discuss this?? can anyone remember? because i fucking can’t
this is amazing and brave and noteworthy and brilliant all at once, i love it and i love this man so much it hurts
Especially since he’s indigenous…This is an important issue.
*quietly adds this to the list of Reasons Why Dwayne Johnson Is An Awesome Person*
He’s also Black. Like…he identifies as both Samoan and Black.
Black men talking about their depression gives me so much hope
