Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Explains Why He Pees In His Water Bottles

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Explains Why He Pees In His Water Bottles

Everyone has their little gym routines and for Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, it's having a wee in his own water bottles.

Whatever floats your boat I suppose! And it hasn't stopped him from becoming an absolute unit and arguably the biggest film star on the planet.

But there is a method to his apparent madness. Here's his explanation:


"I do pee in my water bottles but let me give context to that," said 49-year-old Johnson, who has starred in Red Notice, Jungle Cruise, Black Adam and around 83 per cent of all films made in the last five years.

'It's not a water bottle that I've actually purchased solely for water that you wash and clean when you're done using it," he told Esquire. "These are just bottles that I'm no longer using.

"Usually the gyms that I workout in don't have a bathroom because they're the iron paradise," said the proud piddller. "They're just hot, sweaty and dirty."

Mate, your gym is in your house. It's all over your Instagram. Also, The Iron Paradise is a really good name for a wrestler.


The Rock first fessed up to wazzing in his water bottles in a 2017 Instagram video, saying he was just too busy to stop what he was doing for a number one.

Not content with conquering the world of wrestling and movies, The Rock recently made his first foray into music - although his rapping didn't go down quite as well as the People's Elbow.

Johnson got to spit lyrics on 'Face Off', a song from Tech N9ne's new album ASIN9NE. He had appeared on Wycliff Jean's 'It Doesn't Matter' - but he claims it was more shouting than rapping.


After Johnson wrote his verse, he went into the studio with his wife, Lauren Hashian, and recorded it in one take while drinking his own tequila. Sounds like a solid plan for the genius juices to start flowing.

"I'm excited for you to hear this song, I think you're gonna dig it," Johnson had said, before sharing a video of him working out while the song played in the background, writing: "Recognise the voice?"


In the closing verse of the track, Johnson raps: "It's about tribe, it's about power / We stay hungry, we devour / Put in the work, put in the hours and take what's ours / Black and Samoan in my veins, my culture bangin' with Strange / I change the game so what's my muthaf*****g name (Rock)."

Although perhaps not his biggest hit, 'Face Off' still smashed up the US charts, proving that anything The Rock touches tends to turn to gold.

I think the best thing to say about his lyrics say is that 'Dwayne' rhymes far better with 'name,' but let's just say the response was...lukewarm. Like p*ss in a bottle.
