Divorce was 'painful' for Johnson

Dwayne Johnson may be known as The Rock, but he has revealed that dealing with divorce wasn't easy.

The wrestler-turned-action star split from college sweetheart Dany Garcia Johnson in 2007 after 10 years of marriage, with whom he has a daughter.

"Since our divorce, we've become pretty good at working together, and we are also raising our beautiful 11-year-old daughter, Simone. You know, you don't sign up for a divorce when you get married. It's very painful. But it's taught me a great deal about myself," he told Essence magazine.

Dwayne - who has been filming Brett Ratner's Hercules, in which he plays the title role - revealed he gives his all to relationships these days.

"When I say I'm going to take care of a woman, I don't just mean physically or sexually or romantically. I'm going to take care of her emotionally and spiritually," he said.

"I'm going to take care of her in all ways. I take a lot of pride in that today," he added.
