The thing that sets Dwayne Johnson apart from the rest of the world isn’t his fame, talent, or physique. When you get down to it, his drive sets him apart. Without that drive, determination, and grit, we probably wouldn’t know who he is. Certainly, he wouldn’t have been the Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment nor a Hollywood sensation.

The thing about that level of drive is that it might look odd to other people. It doesn’t seem like Dwayne Johnson cares too much about seeming odd to other folks. Recently, he sat down with Esquire to talk about his life and career. During that chat, they brought up a headline from 2017. The headline read, “The Rock Reveals That He Pees in a Damn Water Bottle at the Gym,” and the publication asked him to explain it.

Dwayne Jonson started by saying, “Well, yeah. The headline is actually true. I do pee in my water bottles. But, let me give context to that,” he said with a laugh, “because everyone is leaning in, now, to what this means.”

 Learning that one of the biggest stars in the country pees in water bottles is odd, to say the least. However, if anyone can make that make any kind of sense, it’s The Rock.

Dwayne Johnson continued saying, “It’s not a water bottle that I actually purchased solely for water that you wash and you clean when you’re done using it. These are just bottles that I’m no longer using.”

Dwayne Johnson on Why He Has to Pee in Water Bottles

It’s important to keep in mind that Dwayne Johnson isn’t just hitting the local Gold’s Gym or Planet Fitness. He’s in his personal gym dubbed The Iron Paradise. About that gym, The Rock says, “Usually, the gyms that I work out in don’t have a bathroom. They’re the Iron Paradise. There’s no bathroom there.” So, he’d have to stop his workout completely, leave the gym, do his business, and come back. That would throw off the flow of his workout.

Additionally, Dwayne Johnson would have to stop multiple times during his workouts. “I usually stay pretty hydrated. I need to go to the bathroom a lot,” he said. Then, he clarified, “Not a lot, but probably a couple of times during every workout I have to go to the bathroom. So, I break out the bottle.”

Okay, that makes sense. The guy is driven and has a physique to maintain. Additionally, it seems like he does most of his lifting solo. So, it’s not really that weird. Even if it was, he’s Dwayne Johnson. When you’re The Rock, you can pee in as many bottles as you want and not lose a single cool point.
