The Rock: My mother attempted suicide

‘Fast and Furious’ actor Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, has revealed that his mother, Ata Johnson, attempted suicide, when he was a teenager, 30 years ago.

The actor says his family had been evicted from an apartment, when the incident happened. One day, his mother pulled over the car on an interstate in Nashville, got out, and walked into traffic.

The Rock says he was able to grab her and pull her back onto the gravel shoulder. He said: “What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it, whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t.”
