Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was hesitant to tie the knot again after his 2007 split from ex-wife Dany Garcia.
“My divorce did a number of me,” the “Jumanji: The Next Level” actor said in an interview with WSJ Magazine. “I wasn’t fearful of getting married again, there was just some hesitancy. But Lauren [Hashian] was incredibly patient: ‘I love you, you love me, we have this amazing life together — no presh.”
In August, Johnson, 47, revealed he secretly married longtime girlfriend Hashian in Hawaii. The couple, who are parents to daughters Jasmine, 3, and Tiana, 1, have been together for over a decade after meeting on the set of “The Game Plan” in 2006.
“Within 30 seconds, I thought, ‘Wow, this girl’s stunning,’” Johnson said of his first glance at Hashian, 35.
Though Hashian was also reeling from a breakup at the time, Johnson — who also shares daughter Simone, 18, with Garcia — credited fate for bringing them together.
“At the time, I was going through my breakup with Dany and [Hashian] was just coming off a big breakup, too,” Johnson explained. “Ironically, when you’re not looking for something, the power of the universe kind of takes over.”
Johnson started dating Hashian in 2007. His divorce from Garcia was finalized the following year.
