Dwayne Johnson has publicly thanked his genetics in a throwback Thursday post he shared via Instagram.

The 43-year-old wrestler-turned-actor transforms into a stylish celebrity whenever he graces the red carpet nowadays.

But his fashion sense wasn’t always admirable and he posted a photo of himself as a 16-year-old via Instagram on Thursday to prove he was a goofy teenager once.

“#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law.. McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glenn Cliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6'4 225lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child (sic),” he wrote in the caption attached to a black and white image of himself sporting a thin mustache over his upper lip. “Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in [honkey] tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads. Yup, one of the many reasons why I'm a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty's a*s early in life.”

Dwayne also made it clear he is appreciative of his background in hashtags he created at the bottom of the post, which read: “#GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics”, “#AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears”, then finally “#AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache”.
