John Krasinski Had No Idea How to Use the Equipment in The Rock’s Private Gym


We’re back with John Krasinski
who has had quite a year. I mean, really, the
movie has done very well. Jack Ryan is fantastic. Thank you. I’m really loving that. Thank you very much. You’re in great shape for that. Hey, thanks. Yeah, I’m seeing your forearms. That’s what I’m saying. This is all surgery, but
you know, it’s worth it. Slap. And you’re in People
Magazine’s Sexiest Action man. Wow. Yeah. Man of action. Thank you. How about that? How about that. Yeah, I mean, hm? It’s– yep it never stops– it’s tough to look at that
and be like, yep, I knew it. Just a matter of time. Yep. Finally, the respect I deserve. And then, yeah. Oh, that’s different. Yeah. That isn’t people. No. Well, it’s every day–
that’s me, actually. That’s you thinking
about the future and– Sorry, I’m blacking out. My brain’s exploding. And you saved someone’s
life, I just heard. When you were in Costa Rica,
somebody was, like, pulled out to sea and you saved them. Yeah, I don’t know how
your producer dug up that story, whether he
was on the beach or what. It was him. It was– Yeah. Yeah. Yes, there was a girl
who got pulled out in a current when I was 17. I lived down in Costa Rica for
six months and taught English. And she got pulled
out in the ocean. And before I thought about it,
I swam out there to save her. And as I grabbed her– she was
underwater and I grabbed her. And I was like,
this is a bad idea because the trees were
this big and I was, like, pretty sure there are sharks. And I had to
explain that to her. I was like, I’m more scared than
you, but we should go back in. And we brought her in and
I got her to the beach. I swam with her. My mom was an amazing
swimmer and taught us when we were little. So I was able to bring
her into the beach. Yeah, because I was going
to say, if she’s getting pulled out then the
current should have really pulled you out too. Yeah, but. Oh, yeah. I forgot. I can’t even do that
with a straight face. That’s embarrassing
that I did that. Please edit that out. No. That– that– [CROWD CHEERS] Yeah. Now, is this because– because I
heard you working out in Dwayne Johnson’s– like, he’s got a trailer
that travels around and you can work out in. It’s not a trailer. It’s a full gym. Emily just did a movie with him. And I said, could I ever
work out at your place? And he said, yeah, no problem. And then 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? And I said, yeah. I mean, how bad– I walked in and it was like
alien spaceships had landed. He has, like, 40
pieces of equipment that I’ve never seen in my life. So this is one of the
alien pieces of equipment it’s called a Pit Shark. And I said, Dwayne,
how do you use this? And he said, oh, it’s easy. I’ll show you one day. And then I did that
and I said, never mind. I got it. And I had a crook in my
neck for about three weeks. Is it, like, for neck muscles? No, it’s a leg machine,
but when you look at it– when you look at it, you
don’t know where to begin. So I started with the head
[INAUDIBLE] and it went poorly. But as time went on, I got
more and more comfortable in the gym. We were just workout buddies. Right. So then you would just
work out like this? Yeah. Yeah, I’d send him pictures
as I’d leave the gym. And I was like, hey man,
thanks for a great workout. Feeling real comfortable,
real at home. And didn’t feel like I
needed to wear clothes. No, no. And he loves that. He loves when you get,
like, really intimate sweat on all his equipment. Right. Yeah. I bet he does. And this is a bad place
to tell him that I never washed the equipment. Never wiped it down. Never. No, no. That’s his job. Yeah, good for you.
