“I would say between the ages of 7 and 11, people thought that I was a little girl because I had really soft features and I had really soft Afro hair,” Dwayne explained.
The actor then recounted one specific moment on a school bus on his first day of fifth grade.
“I sit down next to a kid, and within 60 seconds, he goes, ‘Can I ask you something?’” he said. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’”
Dwayne also described his childhood as “Forrest Gump-ian” as his father’s career as a professional wrestler meant he was constantly changing schools and moving around while he was growing up.
“Wrestling in the ’80s and in the ’70s was way different than it is today. A lot of the times, including my father, the wrestlers would live paycheck to paycheck,” he said.
