Dwayne Johnson Allegedly A Nightmare on Set; Chronically Late and Pees in Bottles

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest, family-friendly superstars in the world, and he’s always branded himself as a hard worker with great work ethic.

However, with a new report from The Wrap (via JoBlo), they say that Johnson isn’t the best person to have on set—especially with his upcoming Christmas film, Red One.

According to the report, Johnson had apparently cost Amazon MGM millions (specifically $50 million) by being constantly late on set—regulary showing up at least 5-8 hours late. It was also this ‘chronic lateness’ that got Johnson into fights with Vin Diesel on the Fast & Furious movies, and apparently a ‘huge fight’ with Red Notice co-star Ryan Reynolds.

With the lateness also comes a weird new bit of information from Johnson in that he is said to have a habit of peeing in a bottle to save time. The insider said, “On set, away from his trailer, if he needs to pee, he doesn’t go to the public bathroom… He pees in a Voss water bottle and his team or a PA has to dispose of it.”

In Johnson’s defense, Amazon was quick to release a statement on his behavior saying, “Dwayne Johnson and Seven Bucks have been incredible partners on ‘Red One’… we couldn’t have made it without Dwayne’s constant work and support. Any reporting that implies that we got to this point with him showing up seven-eight hours late to set is both ridiculous and false.“

With the Rock’s family-friendly/hardworking persona, this news is certainly coming as a shock to a lot of people, but there have been rumblings of Johnson being difficult to deal with since Black Adam where he allegedly bullied his way into getting Henry Cavill back as Superman and refused to share the screen with Shazam, Black Adam’s actual comic rival. There’s also that thing in his Fast contracts where it’s written that he can’t lose a fight onscreen.

This is certainly a huge blow to the Rock’s image, and I can’t wait to see how he’s going to respond. For now, the internet is just having a ball making pee jokes, but wasting an entire working crew’s time constantly is no laughing matter.
