    "Black Adam" Star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Joked About His Human Weakness Being The Reason For His Previous Divorce

    Dwayne is all set to premiere his brand-new movie Black Adam, but before he did, we got a little personal with the action star.

    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has held many titles throughout his career, like WWE champion, beloved actor, producer, rapper, singer, business owner, and now, a DC villain.

    And last night, during the world premiere of his new film, Black Adam, in New York City, we got to chat with the star about his latest role, as well as the personal powers he possesses off screen.

    Dwayne told us that Black Adam was a "passion project 15 years in the making," and now he finally gets to share it with the world.

    And because superheroes and villains alike are equipped with extraordinary abilities, we asked Dwayne to identify his greatest strengths and weaknesses within himself.

    "My greatest strength?" Dwayne said. "There's no way to answer that without sounding like an asshole."

    Dwayne smiling

    He continued, "My greatest strength is probably taking care of my family, taking care of the people I love, taking care of my friends, and taking care of my fans."

    And as a bonus power, Dwayne added that he can "drink the hell out of some tequila."

    Now, when it comes to weaknesses, if we're talking physicality alone, I'm sure none of us would want to go toe-to-toe with the former pro wrestler. But since we're all human, I had to know what he considered a weakness.

    "Well," Dwayne said as he thought about his answer. "That's why I'm divorced."

    But don't worry, there's no bad blood between him and his ex-wife, Dany Garcia, to whom he was married from 1997 to 2008. Not only are they the best of friends, but she's still his business partner and adviser.

    And while I'm sure we can play around with what he meant by that answer, for now, his weakness will remain a mystery, and he'll continue on as the People's Champ!
