  • Flowers are a fairly common gift for movie stars.

  • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently revealed that he tends to throw them out right away.

  • However, there's one gift-giver for whom he makes an exception.

Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeellllll what The Rock is cookin'? More importantly, do you knooooooooowwwww what The Rock is sick of smellin'?

Flowers. The Rock is sick of smellin' flowers.

Performers have been receiving flowers after a performance or on red carpets since before movies even began, so it stands to reason that a major movie star like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who recently took the stage at the Academy Awards alongside his Jungle Cruise co-star Emily Blunt, has received his fair share. But what does the superstar do with all those floral arrangements, you ask?

Essentially Sports found Johnson's answer, and it's more brutal than the countless chair shots he delivered to Mankind during the "I Quit" match at the 1999 Royal Rumble. The site unearthed an appearance Johnson made on BBC Radio where he was asked about receiving flowers. The host inquires what he does with the many bouquets that are gifted to him, and Johnson answered succinctly:

“Straight in the bin, yeah. Well, I look at them, I take the picture, I send them the picture. Hey, thanks for these. These are great and then right in the bin.”

That's right. He tosses flowers like they're Stone Cold Steve Austin on Monday Night Raw.

Now, that may sound harsh, but remember, anytime The Rock takes the lid off of a trash can, there's a chance he uses that lid to clock Vince McMahon right in the dome. So, you know, every cloud has a silver lining.

But while The Rock's treatment of most floral arrangements is as savage as his WWE days, there's one case where a gift of flowers felt as sweet as his Young Rock sitcom (which can be a real tearjerker sometimes, we'll own up to it). That's when he was gifted some roses by his daughters for Father's Day this year, which he shared in an adorable Instagram post. That's one time where we know those flowers will get the vase, instead of the bin.
