ZonaHollywood.com - CATEGORY Latest news: TITLE

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has praised the “monumental moment” of being honoured on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The former professional wrestler who has become one of the world’s highest paid actors praised the importance of his family in his success as he was presented with his star on Wednesday.

Addressing the crowds gathered on Hollywood Boulevard, he spoke of the significance of his mother Ata Johnson, “the strongest woman I know”.

“We were driving over here and she was like, ‘Did you ever think this would be possible?’ I said, ‘No not at all, we were evicted when I was 15.’ And now we’re here and this is amazing,” he added.

“We were evicted out of our one-bedroom apartment in Honolulu, Hawaii, we were forced to leave the island and here we are today.”

“This is such a monumental moment and significant time for me,” Johnson, 45, added.
