Dwayne Johnson Reveals Depression Battle, Mother’s Suicide Attempt

Depression is an illness that millions battle, and it can involve a powerful hereditary component. Some feel that it’s like a family curse.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the legendary wrestler-turned-actor known for his sunny disposition and affection for his fans, is opening up about his own experiences with depression.

And revealing that he nearly lost his mother to suicide.

As part of his press tour for Rampage, Johnson opened up in an interview with Express about his secret battle with depression.

And he describes a horrifying moment when, at 15, he nearly lost his mother, Ata.

“She got out of the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic.”

That is absolutely horrifying. Fortunately, he was able to save her life at the time.

“I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road.”

Though Johnson was already tall and muscular at 15, that’s a heartbreaking scenario for anyone to face with their own mother — particularly when that person is only a teenager.

“What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t.”

Depression can impair memory.

Johnson then goes on to reveal how this has impacted him even more personally.

“Struggle and pain is real. I was devastated and depressed.”

And he describes some tell-tale symptoms of depression.

“I reached a point where I didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere. I was crying constantly.”

Depression robs people of the ability to enjoy their favorite activities, and can also release inhibitions on the expression of certain negative emotions.

He shares that he and his mother were eventually able to manage their depression.

“We both healed but we’ve always got to do our best to pay attention when other people are in pain.”

But he believes that outreach from people who understand can be the key to helping.

“We have to help them through it and remind them they are not alone.”

Johnson has hinted at this struggle in the past.

Once, a fan confessed over social media that they struggled with depression.

Johnson responded at the time, saying:

“I hear you. I’ve battled that beast more than once.”

It’s one thing to have sympathy for a fan for what they’re going to and to then publicly express that. It’s another to share your personal pain to let them know how well you understand their struggle.

Johnson is expecting his second child with his wife, Lauren Hashian.

This beloved actor is cherished by fans for his forthrightness, his ever-present smile, and for destroying stereotypes that say that men with hyper-masculine builds can’t express tenderness, joy, or vulnerability.

His fans adore him with good reason. Since Johnson has threatened to run for President in the past, some people wonder if he might actually have enough popularity and public support to get on a ballot.

Not everyone — even his fans — agree with some of his politics.

But if this last year or so has taught us anything, it’s that America could do far, far worse than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Selena Gomez Gets Candid About Depression and Anxiety

Selena Gomez didn’t really take anyone by surprise late last year when she got back together with Justin Bieber.

We always knew those kids would find a way back into each other’s arms and crotches.

But the singer did take us by surprise just a few days ago.

We were stunned to learn earlier this month that Gomez had checked herself into rehab.

Multiple sources confirmed at the time that Selena spent two weeks under the care of professionals, with one insider explaining her decision to E! News as follows:

“She had a difficult year, especially towards the end, and she decided she wanted to spend some time focusing on herself. It was all about wellness and her health.”

It wasn’t the first time she sought such help, either.

In September of 2016, Gomez also checked herself into a similar facility, as she battled at the time against the negative effects of Lupus.

Now, in a cover story for the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the singer opens up like never before about her mental health; where it’s at; and where she knows it will never be.

We’ll let Selena explain…

“I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome.

“There won’t be a day when I’m like, ‘Here I am in a pretty dress – I won!’

“I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else. I’m starting my year off with that thought.

“I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place.”

That’s a very positive attitude for Gomez to take.

Just like being an alcohol, someone who is diagnosed as Depressed is that way for life.

He or she can get better, of course, but there’s no actual cure of any kind.

Gomez has not released a new studio album since 2015.

And it doesn’t sound like we’ll get one this year, either.

“My next album has been forever in the making,” she admits, explaining why as follows:

“When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready.

“I mean, point-blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care.

“Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”

It’s worth noting that Gomez underwent a kidney transplant just a few months ago.

She’s been through A LOT of late.

Selena actually talks to 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford for this interview.

She tells the actress that she rarely goes anyplace “trendy” and that her social media popularity comes with some major strings attached.

“I have a complex relationship with Instagram, to say the least,” she explains.

Why would this be?

Well…

“It has given me a voice amid all the noise of people trying to narrate my life for me and allows me to say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna post this, and this is gonna take care of the 1,200 stories that people think are interesting but actually aren’t, and aren’t even true.’

“So it empowers me in that way because it’s my words and my voice and my truth. The only thing that worries me is how much value people our age place on social media.

“It’s an incredible platform, but in a lot of ways it’s given young people, myself included, a false representation of what’s important. So, yeah, it’s a complex relationship.

“Probably one of my most difficult relationships.”

Interesting, huh?

As always, we wish Selena nothing but the best.
