Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Tells What Makes Him Weep

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be front and center entertaining his male constituency next month, starting with hisreturn to the WWE to host “WrestleMania 27” April 3, and continuing through release of the fifth “Fast and the Furious” testosterone-fueled street racing action flick April 29.  So — of course! — Entertainment Weekly used theoccasion to ask the big guy what made him weep.  “I’m a very emotional man,” says Dwayne.

Those emotional things include his daughter’s birth in 2001:  “I’m an only child and grew up with a very selfish ‘I gotta take care of me’ attitude. And when I first held my baby girl, it hit me like a ton of bricks that there’s someone else in this world that I must commit to…”  Aw!

Then Johnson’s stroll through memory lane takes him to such moments as earning his first WWE (then WW F) world championship in 1998; winning the national championship with the University of Miami football team in 1992; and this one that will hit home with a lot of men:  “I accidentally closed the garage door on the front of my black Ford F-150 about three months ago. I shed a tear when I saw that happen. That’s my baby, my favorite car to drive.””  Sniff. Sniff.   The issue hits stands tomorrow.  (3/25)
