Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has shared a disturbing video of himself on Instagram with blood pouring from his head after a gym accident.
The Hollywood star and former wrestler explained that he had been hit in the face with a chain during a workout and that he would need to have stitches.
However, in a strange moment, he wipes the blood that was trickling down his temple and licks it from his finger. In the video the 48-year-old said:
Alright, look. Sometimes — well, oftentimes, things get intense here in the Iron Paradise, but we ain't playing tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes. Alright, you get lumped up every once in a while and things happen.
Then, as he tastes his own blood, Johnson adds:
That's good. That's real good. Back to work.
Johnson explained in a bit more detail as to what had happened to him and joked about what his blood tastes like.
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. Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set - I got lumped up and need stitches
Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later - rules of the house. And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce.
Have a productive week, my friends - keep it light and a lil’ fun, but get after it like a MF.
