Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has proved he's the real deal after showing off his true brute strength.

The actor and entrepreneur, 48, wasn't messing around as he ripped a gate from his hinges with his own two hands so he wouldn't be late to work.

Taking to Instagram Dwayne explained that storms in his area had caused power outages, meaning he couldn't get his electric front gate open.

So he showed those biceps aren't just for show and tore it from its frame.

He shared a look at the gate, laid to the side after the famously ripped star had done his thing.

"Not my finest hour," he admitted, "but a man's gotta go to work.

The Rock is seriously ripped

"We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open.

"I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out - but this time it wouldn't.

"Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn't have 45min to wait."

He went on to explain that a bunch of people were waiting on him to get going, adding: "By this time, I know 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.

The star has a legendary work ethic

"I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself.

"Ripped it completely out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass.

"My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, 'in disbelief and equally scared' as to how I ripped it off.

"Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work.

"And I'm ready to be BLACK ADAM."

Dwayne was referencing one of his most frequently one roles, that of anti-hero Black Adam in DC's superhero film universe.

Dwayne told fans that his family had Covid-19

He recently shared a lengthy video in which he disclosed to fans that he, his wife Lauren and their two girls all had coronavirus.

"My wife Lauren, as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for Covid-19 and I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family," he said.

He added: "I've had my a**-kicked in the past with some challenges but testing positive for Covid-19 is much different to overcoming nasty injuries, being evicted or being broke, which I have been more than a few times."
