CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson owns a farm outside Charlottesville.

Many of his fans know that, but what you may not know is that when he comes back to stay at his farm, he goes into town to workout at a public gym.

“[I] try to get in and out as fast as possible without drawing a crowd. While working out, I tell people no pictures I just want to train and a handshake will have to do,” he wrote in a recent Instagram post. “Then as I’m pulling out of the parking lot I see all these women briskly walking to my truck with eyes wide. I shift gears to drive off and see them in the rear view waving at me saying ‘come back.'”

Johnson said he turned back because he cannot drive away from women and children.

“We saw ‘The Rock’ and he was parked in a truck with his glasses on,” Jackson told WCAV. “He’s just my inspiration.”

“I couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I was like, I’m crying in front of ‘The Rock.’ I’m bawling like someone passed away and I could barely keep it together. That’s when he told me to stop crying, and I said OK.”

Although she can't hold on to "The Rock" forever, she'll hold onto the memory and that T-Swift song.
