Dwayne Johnson - Dwayne Johnson: 'Surgery Was A Blessing'

Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson saw his recent hernia operation as a blessing in disguise because it forced him to slow down and take a break from his punishing work schedule.

The Scorpion King star has been busy promoting his latest films, Fast & Furious 6 and Pain & Gain, but work came to a halt last month (Apr13) when he underwent a procedure to treat three hernial tears.

Johnson, who missed Pain & Gain's Los Angeles premiere to undergo the surgery, admits he saw the positive side of the health scare as he was able to spend more time with his family, telling Entertainment Tonight, "My little girl (11-year-old daughter Simone) was so happy that I was able to come home. I said, 'Well, you know daddy's still Superman, right?'...

"It was a really nice blessing to slow down. It was almost God's way of saying, 'Well, now you're gonna take a break.'"
