Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has posted a throwback picture of himself in college – and revealed he wanted to work for the CIA.

The athlete-turned-actor took to Instagram to share a snap of himself aged 22, while he was playing for the Miami Hurricanes American football team.

“Fun fact: in college, my goal was to eventually work for the CIA. Until my criminal justice professor and advisor (Dr. Paul Cromwell) convinced me that the best operative I could become for the agency is one that also had a law degree.

“I thought that’s a great idea until I realized no respectable law school would ever let me in with my pile of steaming s*** grades.
End of story.
