DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON turned his back on his troubled teens after facing his mother one night following a petty crime arrest. The action man had been arrested nine times for fighting and theft by the time he was 17 and the last time it really hit home that he had become a huge burden to his struggling mother. He says, "My mom had come to get me out of jail a bunch of times and it was always the same thing; she'd be crying and then I'd get a big tongue lashing. "But then on the last time I got arrested... my mom picked me up and I was waiting to hear the worst, I was waiting for that big tongue lashing... but now she's crying with no more words; she's not saying anything. "For me, I love my mom... and when she's crying with no more words, that hits you and that hit me like a ton of bricks. "Life was tough enough for us back then through evictions and everything else, and I thought, 'Wow, life is throwing a lot at c**p at my mom, and here I am, 'Oh, here mom, here's some more c**p,' and I couldn't do it any more so I had to make a change."
