Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson plays a hero in almost every movie he's in. He even has a show on TBS called "The Hero." But in the latest issue of Essence magazine, he opens up about his divorce with the mother of his children, his college sweetheart Dany Garcia Johnson. The two had known each other for seven years before marrying 10 years ago. They divorced in 2007, and have since kept close, rising their daughter Simone Alexander.
"Since our divorce, we've become pretty good at working together, and we are also raising our beautiful 11-year-old daughter, Simone," Johnson told Essence. "You know, you don't sign up for a divorce when you get married, it's very painful. But it's taught me a great deal about myself."
While Johnson's divorce made the former WWE star become introspective about his failed marriage, he shared with the magazine his positive outlook on his future love life. He believes that he can give a partner everything she's looking for in a man.
"When I say I'm going to take care of a woman, I don't just mean physically or sexually or romantically. I'm going to take care of her emotionally and spiritually," he said. "I'm going to take care of her in all ways."
Sounds like a hero to us!
