The 49-year-old previously shared that he pees in bottles in a 2017 Instagram video, stating that he ‘doesn’t have time’ to stop for a bathroom break in the gym.
Naturally, some fans have always been puzzled about that and in a new interview with Esquire, the topic was brought back up.
The Red Notice star explained: ‘I do pee in my water bottles but let me give context to that.
‘It’s not a water bottle that I’ve actually purchased solely for water that you wash and clean when you’re done using it. These are just bottles that I’m no longer using.’
The former wrestler continued: ‘Usually the gyms that I workout in don’t have a bathroom because they’re the iron paradise. They’re just hot, sweaty and dirty.’
Dwayne explained that he has to relieve himself quite often as he usually stays ‘pretty hydrated’ throughout the day, so ‘I break out the bottle.’
Nope, I’m the opposite of a “not washing themselves” celeb.
Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’.
Shower (warm) after my workout before work.
Shower (hot) after I get home from work.
Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower https://t.co/iE6ZPhrthL

We’ve been learning a lot about the Black Adam actor this year as he revealed that he showers not once, not twice, but thrice daily.
Replying to a follower’s tweet in which she shared that her and her work colleagues had been discussing celebrities who shirk showers and had decided he ‘can’t possibly be one of those stinky ones’, Dwayne was happy to reveal his full daily bathing routine.
Quote tweeting his fan, he replied: ‘Nope, I’m the opposite of a “not washing themselves” celeb.
‘Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work.
‘Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.’
It makes perfect sense for a celebrity that has spent a large part of his career in the gym to be on it with his bathing but it also makes a refreshing change.
Just make sure you don’t ever borrow one of his water bottles if you ever share a gum together…
