No pain, no gain!
On Oct. 26, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to record a video that showed him bleeding from the side of his eyebrow. The injury, he said, came while he was working out in the gym, a place he affectionately calls "the iron paradise."
"We ain't playin' tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes – it's called the #ironparadise for a reason and things get extremely intense," he wrote alongside the video. "Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set – I got lumped up and need stitches."
While somewhat breathless, the actor ran his finger through the blood rolling down his face and tasted it at one point.
"Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later – rules of the house," he said, adding that his blood tastes "real good."
"I can confirm my blood tastes like [his tequila] Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce," he said.
Before continuing on with his bloody workout, he sent a note of encouragement to his followers.
"Have a productive week, my friends – keep it light and a lil' fun, but get after it like a MF," he wrote.
