Dwayne Johnson’s traveling gym, dubbed the Iron Paradise, is so mysterious that even a producer on one of his movies asked John Krasinski to report back to him when the “Jack Ryan” actor worked out in it with The Rock.
“It’s not a trailer, it’s a full gym,” Krasinski explained during his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday. “Emily [Blunt] just did a movie with him and I said, ‘could I ever work out at your place?’ And he said, ‘yeah, no problem!'”
Krasinski added, “I met the producer for dinner the next night and he said, ‘you know no human being has ever been in that gym? Will you report back and tell me what it is?’ I walked in and it was like alien spaceships had landed. He had like 40 pieces of equipment that I’ve never seen in my life.”
The “A Quiet Place” actor went on to describe an interaction he had with one of Johnson’s leg machines, titled “The Pit Shark.” Krasinski said he had no idea how to use it and therefore began experimenting with the weight machine — head first, which obviously wasn’t right …
“As time went on, I got more and more comfortable in the gym,” he said. “We were just workout buddies.”
Krasinski’s wife, Blunt, just wrapped production on “Jungle Cruise” costarring Johnson. She will next star in Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns.”
