Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram to post the ultimate Throwback Thursday photo, telling followers that he hit puberty so early that many classmates mistook him for an undercover cop.

The black-and-white yearbook photo shows that The Rock hasn’t changed very much, although he has since abandoned the hair and mustache. The actor hilariously reveals that his “porn ‘stache” made him look like “a man child.”

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.”

In the post, the actor also discloses his troubled past. He wrote that by the time he was 16 years old, he had been enrolled in four different high schools due to evictions and trouble with the law. In Nashville, he was hanging out in dive bars and “hustlin’ cars from crackheads.”

This is why, the post reads, he is grateful for how far he has come since The pre-Rock pictured in the photo.

“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 ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache.”

#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), Glencliff 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. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin’ out in honey 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 ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache
