Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson did a weird thing on set, according to his Skyscraper co-star Neve Campbell. As a public service, she told Stephen Colbert all about it on The Late Show the other day.

Per Cinemablend:

You know what, he does this weird thing, which is every time you go have a meal, you go and see him and he says, 'What did you have?' You say, 'I had a salad.' 'What did you have in your salad?' 'Feta cheese.' 'What else?' 'Tomatoes.' 'What else?' 'Salmon.' 'How'd you have the salmon?' It's like the weirdest thing. He's obsessed with other people's food. It's like porn for him.

This is all even better if you imagine The Rock using his "I'm about to pound the crap outta someone, probably Jason Statham" voice.

Campbell said that on set, Johnson ate every two hours, and what he ate was extremely regulated. "It's like a machine, right?" she explained, referring to the mass of muscle and charisma that is his being. "He's just jealous. All he wants to know is what people eat."

None of this matters in the least except to point out that our future president the star of over 30 movies, at least 15 of which are good, is perhaps not perfect. And a little intense about food.

Speaking of food, Johnson dropped by Colbert's show the next night and gave a shout-out to Waffle House for getting him through his early days as a pro wrestler. Back when he was living like a nomad, wrestling in flea markets and used car dealerships, and making only $40 a match, he said he ate at Waffle House three times a day.

The Waffle House then tweeted it was "so honored to be a part of @TheRock's story." Good-guy Rock replied that Waffle House "will 4ever be my jam."

Wonder how often his strict on-set diet allows for waffles.
