Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson add immensity to the term “movie buff” as their new action-crime-comedy, “Pain & Gain,” hits theaters this weekend.
In the Michael Bay film, Wahlberg and Johnson play body builders who hatch a meatheaded plan to extort money from rich guys in early 90s Miami Beach. When these American dreamers turn out to be nightmarish thugs, all sorts of Bayhem ensues.
We all know Wahlberg and The Rock will fill up the big screen, but here’s five facts about “Pain & Gain” that you may not know.
The Rock Needs Food!
1. If you’ve ever seen The Rock throw “The People’s Elbow,” you may have thought he could simply walk off the wrestling mat and be ready to play a body builder on set. But that’s not the case. According to USA Today, besides upping his workout regime, the 6’4″ former wrestler put on “12 to 15 pounds of muscle” by going on a crazy calorie binge that amounted to seven full meals a day, topping out at over 250 pounds.. Here’s how he divvied up his daily allowance of “good complex carbs and protein/fat sources.”
Breakfast: 10-ounce beef fillet, 2 cups of oatmeal, two-egg omelet.
Brunch: 8 ounces of cod, 12 ounces of sweet potatoes, 1 cup of steamed veggies.
Half lunch: 8 ounces of chicken (we’re assuming not fried), 2 cups of white rice, 1 cup of veggies.
Lunch: 8 more ounces of cod, 2 cups of rice, 1 cup of veggies.
Lunner (or maybe dunch): 8 ounces of steak, 12 ounces of baked potato fries, a salad.
Dinner: 10 more ounces of cod (really, can you ever get enough cod?) 2 more cups of rice, another salad.
Late-night snack: 30 grams of casein protein powder, 10-egg-white omelet (yes, 10!), 1 cup of veggies, a tablespoon of Omega-3 to wash it down.
Got Milk?
2. After going 150 days on that diet without cheating, The Rock broke his fast in the grandest of fashions. According to Muscle & Strength, Johnson went on a three round eating bender that consisted of 12 pancakes, followed by four “double dough pepperoni pizzas,” followed by 21 brownies and a jug of milk. Apparently The Rock isn’t much into moderation.
