You have to consume a lot of calories if you want to build a physique like Dwayne Johnson’s. However, the actor is apparently much more interested in other people’s food than his own when he’s filming movies. The Rock’s Skyscraper co-star Neve Campbell recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she revealed the actor’s habit of getting all up in her business regarding what she had eaten on set. He’s apparently somewhat obsessed with knowing exactly what other people had to eat. It seems the Rock wants to know what you’ve been cookin.’ According to Campbell…
It would be one thing if Dwayne Johnson was really interested in what you were eating because he wanted to make sure you were eating right. One assumes that’s a big deal for him. However, based on what Neve Campbell is saying here, comparing it to porn, it sounds much more like Johnson is getting pleasure from hearing what other people are eating. He enjoys listening to others talk about their meals.
You might expect such behavior from a total foodie, somebody who just loves everything about food. But it seems from what Neve Campbell says next, that The Rock’s obsession with other people’s food comes from the fact that he doesn’t get to eat whatever he wants himself, which is leading him to live vicariously through the meals of others.
It seems that Dwayne Johnson’s love of hearing about what you had for lunch is all about the fact that he can’t have it. Maintaining a physique like Rocky’s is all about exercise combined with the proper diet, but that diet means eating the proper amounts, of the right kinds of food, at proper intervals. It’s possible the guy hasn’t had a chance to really enjoy eating food in a long time, so he finds that enjoyment in what other people have to eat instead.
When most people take a cheat day from their diets they take the opportunity to eat junk food or sweets. One gets the impression that when Dwayne Johnson gets a cheat day, he might just take the time to enjoy his meal.
