The wrestler-turned-movie star added, “What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t.”
Although Johnson admitted that he didn’t enjoy shooting the scene, it served as an important reminder to keep eye an out for those who are going through a tough time.
“Help ‘em thru it, get ‘em talkin’ about the struggle and remind ‘em that they’re not alone,” he said. “We got lucky that day when I was 15 and that ain’t always the case.”
“In that moment, one of the greatest lessons I’ve ever learned was how precious life is and how in an instant, it can all go away,” he said. “[It] changed me.”
Fortunately, Johnson’s 2-year-old daughter Jasmine Lia was around to put a smile on his face after a gruelling day on the set.
“After a very long and fatiguing day of work, the battle of wills between me and my baby, Jasmine Lia was just the mental therapy I needed,” he captioned a sweet video. “When she throws the cup and pretends to be sad… she’s rewriting the psychological chess game, that I thought I mastered. Think again daddy.”
