Actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has opened up about his personal struggle with depression.

In an interview with The Express, the 45-year-old actor shared the story of how his mother attempted to take her own life 30 years ago.

"What’s crazy about this suicide attempt is that, to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t."

Johnson, who was the highest paid actor in Hollywood for two years running, detailed the extent of his mental illness.

"I reached a point where I didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere."

"I was crying constantly."

The former wrestler says the key is to open up and that realise that "you're not alone."
