Having a muscular body like Dwayne Johnson requires a lot of dedication to a strict diet. In a recent video, Stephen Merchant is seen talking with Jim Roberts and Sam Norton on the YouTube channel SiriusXM. Stephen Merchant is best known for directing several of The Office episodes (the British version) and he recently revealed some interesting tidbits about The Rock’s strict diet that the actor has to follow.
The restaurants heat up Dwayne Johnson’s food!
Stephen Merchant shared how the 50-year-old actor maintains his diet while being busy shooting on sets while filming. The director mentions meeting Dwayne Johnson in Texas just before Wrestlemania about a movie. Stephen shared a hilarious incident when asked about having the chance for a cheat meal with The Rock.
“I think someone told me, maybe he told me, that when he goes for dinner with friends he has to take his food to the restaurant and have them heat it up because it’s such a structured diet he has to have”
The interviewers continued the humorous tone by stating that’s how
“that’s how you know who The Rock is! Could you just heat up the sh*t that I brought with me?”
Stephen Merchant went on to reveal The Rock’s structured diet consisting of a fridge, a 3:17 alarm clock, and a microwave.
“I do remember having a meeting with him just in Texas just before WrestleMania and we were having a meeting about the movie and his alarm would go off at like 3:17 p.m. and he would go to the fridge and there would be turkey and rice with ‘3:17 p.m.’ written on it and he would microwave it. It was so regimented.”
While Dwayne Johnson is busy with Black Adam!
Dwayne Johnson has been making rounds around the internet ever since the release date of DC’s anti-hero Black Adam gets closer and closer every day. Playing the lead role, he even appeared in full Black Adam costume at the SDCC 2022! The Rock is also seen a lot with his best friend and partner-in-crime Kevin Hart as the duo insult each other and slap each other with Tortillas.
Dwayne Johnson was most recently seen (more precisely ‘heard’) as the voice of Krypto and Black Adam’s dog in the animated DC movie DC’s League of Super-Pets (2022). The Rock will be later seen as Black Adam in Black Adam with a release date slated for 21st October 2022 in theaters worldwide.
