Anxious about being late for work, the Jumanji actor said he did not want hundreds of crew members waiting for him.

"Not my finest hour ‍♂️, but a man's gotta go to work", Johnson captioned the post. 'The power outage was caused by severe storms, so my front gate did not 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", he wrote in the caption. Johnson even called the technicians to come fix the jam, but they wouldn't have arrived for 45 minutes.

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

The former WWE champion took matters into his own hands after a power cut disabled the gate while he was about to leave for the shoot of his new DC movie, Black Adam.

Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds was quick to comment on the post.

'What's the old saying?

He reiterated that he had a lot of people waiting on him to start working so he did what needed to be done and joked that maybe next time he'll just hop the gate and call an Uber instead.

Earlier this week, his producing partner, Hiram Garcia, revealed the actor has recovered from coronavirus.

The Rock is now filming the "Red Notice" action comedy thriller for Netflix and as he revealed in his latest Instagram post, nothing could keep him from the set today, not even his own home security.

Johnson's wife Lauren Hashian, 36, and their two daughters, Jasmine, four, and Tiana, two, were also infected with COVID-19.

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

The Fast and Furious owner star broke the news on Wednesday, September 2 in a almost 12-minute Instagram video that his family has signed on to the Corona virus novel.

Amusing and impressive story from The Rock and also a good sign that he's recovered from testing positive for COVID-19.

Doting father: 'He absolutely loves his girls. I wish it was only me that tested positive. This is my whole family, it's a kick in the gut. "We should be done, fingers crossed, probably somewhere around the end of November". Thank God we are healthy.
