‘Throwback to 7 years old in Hawaii, and just dripping cool with my buck teeth, aloha shirt and WTF going on with my afro matted on one side !?’ he wrote as he shared his second grade yearbook photo.
The Rampage actor then joked that the seven-year-old would definitely grow him up to be People’s Sexiest Man Alive – an honor he received in 2016 – while tagging self-mockery.
“#HellooooLadies #BuckyJohnson #SmellsLikeHotDogs # Kingof2ndGrade,” he wrote.
Despite having an awkward stage, The Rock has become anything but, and it certainly doesn’t smell like hot dogs.
