 "The Rock" acted more like The Hulk last week when he was forced to tear open his own front gate with his bare hands. Dwayne Johnson posted a pic of his handiwork on Instagram, explaining that the gate wouldn't open on its own after storms caused a power outage. "Not my finest hour, but a man’s gotta go to work," the 48-year-old actor joked. "Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45 minutes to wait... I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day. So I did what I had to do. I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass." He added with a crying-laughing emoji that his security team "was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently 'in disbelief and equally scared.'"
