The Rock confirms that his home life is 'solid'

01 July 2015, 09:32

Los Angeles - Dwayne Johnson's home life is ''solid''.

The 'San Andreas' star says things are perfect with his girlfriend Lauren Hashian and 13-year-old daughter Simone, who he has from a previous relationship.

He said: ''I've lived with my longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, going on, like, eight, nine years now.

''We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn't mentioned and my daughter isn't mentioned. I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there. You gotta get the better half in there. With all the cool s**t and success that I've been lucky enough to get? That doesn't happen unless the home life is solid.''

The 43-year-old actor also insisted he has his family to thank for helping him navigate the rollercoaster ride that is Hollywood.

He added to Esquire magazine: ''When I first came into acting, I had great opportunities to make a decent movie. I had a run there in 2005, '06, '07 - for a long time it was 'Oh, he's the best thing in the movie that's not that good.'

''I started questioning: Did I make the right choice? Should I have stayed in wrestling a bit longer? And then budgets became lower and lower and the pay kinda stayed the same and there wasn't a lot of growth.''
