Dwayne Johnson practicing being a ‘better communicator’ with wife during lockdown

Lockdown has forced Dwayne Johnson and his wife Lauren Hashian to be “ultra considerate, caring and empathetic of one another”.

During a recent Instagram Q&A, the 47-year-old Jumanji: The Next Level actor opened up on the effect the coronavirus lockdown has had on his marriage, as he confessed: “We realised kinda quickly how critical it was for us to be ultra considerate, caring and empathetic of one another… Be even better listeners. Even better communicators.”

”Recognise that during these times, we’re not operating at full brain and (emotional) capacity as we usually are,” the star, 47, continued. “You’re gonna get snippy, short tempered and you guys may erupt at each other.”

Sharing some tongue-in-cheek advice for how couples should deal with situations that may get heated, he joked: “When that happens, grab your partner by the shoulders, like I grabbed Lauren. Look them directly in the eyes and say with full (100 per cent) conviction, ‘Baby, you’re not wrong… you’re just not used to being right,’ and then count the seconds it takes for you both to belly laugh your a*ses off.”

The wrestler-turned-actor shares daughters Jasmine, four, and two-year-old Tiana with Lauren. He also has an 18-year-old daughter, Simone, with his ex, Dany Garcia.
