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.
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.

This picture is from an article called “The Rescuing Hug”. The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.
It was an intimate snapshot of a sweet celebration: Minutes after the networks called the 2012 presidential election for Barack Obama on Tuesday night, the Obama for America campaign posted a picture of him hugging his wife along with a simple message: “Four more years.” Within minutes, it became the most popular post in the history of Twitter and the most-liked image in the history of Facebook, shared more than 804,000 times, marked as a favorite by more than 289,500 Twitter users, and “liked” by more than 3.2 million Facebook friends.
The simple shot of a happy husband and wife was a surprise to people who may have been expecting a grand portrait of a newly re-elected president and his people. But no one was more surprised than the woman who took the photo back in August.
Scout Tufankjian, a photojournalist who has been focusing her lens on Obama’s political career since 2007, told Slate’s Julia Turner that she snapped the picture on the third day of an Iowa bus tour.
“It was the first day that the first lady had joined us so he hadn’t seen her in a couple of days,” she explained. “She came in on a bus that morning—it was the first event of the day—and they embraced on stage. Onstage in front of all those people.”
“I decided to focus on them rather than taking a wider shot, because I think I’m not alone in finding their relationship to be totally aspirational,” the newly married photojournalist said. “The obvious love and respect that they have for each other, and that the relationship is clearly one of equals, despite the fact that he’s the president, is remarkable. So I wanted to focus on them as a couple rather than on them and the crowd, or them and their position.”
Tufankjian didn’t know that the campaign had used the picture as their Election Night victory image until a friend emailed her about it. It’s unusual that such a personal shot would be used in such a high-profile way, but Tufankjian says it makes sense to her. “It reflects on the way that people feel about the Obamas as people, rather than as public figures,” she said. “What the family is and represents to the country is as much a part of the president’s appeal as his policies.”
After she chronicled Obama’s 2008 campaign, his campaign team hired her in August 2012 as one of their two official photojournalists. It’s given her an opportunity to travel with the president and witness scenes that few ever get to see—like the moment a pizza shop owner in Florida gave the President a bear hug that lifted him off his feet.
The President is “so much happier and more relaxed” when he’s with his family, Tufankjian confided. “He and the first lady are so focused on each other. The way that they play off each other and get energy from each other… when I was shooting the president during the 2008 campaign I would watch them greet each other on stage and I used to text-message my boyfriend, now my husband: ‘Do you love me as much as Barack loves Michelle?’ and he’d be like, ‘Probably not, no’.”
Still, she has hope. “The way that they relate to each other—they just celebrated their 20th anniversary—the way they enjoy each other and listen to each other, and the real respect that they have for each other is something I would like to see in my relationship twenty years from now,” she said.

Candidate : Great! Even I had not heard of it before getting an admission into it ..
What happened is – due to cricket world cup I scored badly! in 12th.I was getting a paid seat in a good college. But my father said (I prefer to call him ‘baap’) – “I can not invest so much of money”.(The baap actually said – “I will never waste so much of money on you”). So I had to join this college. Frankly speaking this name – BabanRao Dhole-Patil, can at the most be related to a Shetakari Mahavidyalaya
