While some recall puberty as an awkward and uncomfortable time in their lives, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said he is extremely grateful to have gone through the growing phase.
Posting a throwback Thursday photo of his younger self, the "Jumanji" actor opened up about how his late father, Rocky Johnson, influenced his dreams of becoming a pro wrestler.
"A lil’ throwback action to 1983, when I was 11 years old - I used to LOVE putting on my dad’s wrestling trunks, boots, jacket and championship belts - dreaming of one day becoming a pro wrestling champion," Johnson, now 48, reminisced.
In the photo, a pre-teen Johnson poses with his hands on his hips sporting two of his dad's belts, one thrown over his shoulder and the other proudly fastened around his waist. The only other garments the future wrestling star is wearing are his dad's white spandex trunks, blue puffer jacket and knee-high white boots.
Johnson signed off the sentimental snap with the hashtag "#thankgodforpuberty."
Of course, his fans were quick to thank the upcoming "Jungle Cruise" actor for providing them some much-needed inspiration for their Halloween outfit this year.
If fans do decide to dress up as 11-year-old Rock, this won't be the first time someone parodied one of his old looks. Last year, the actor's pal, Kevin Hart, trolled Johnson by trick-or-treating as a '90s Rock, complete with a fanny pack, chunky watch, black turtle neck and chain necklace.
