Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has made a name for himself as one of Hollywood's fittest actors, and now the former professional wrestler has shared a gruesome injury he sustained while working out.

The 48-year-old took to Instagram on Monday to reveal that he'd cut his face while exercising with chains, drawing blood.

"Alright, look. Sometimes, well oftentimes, things get intense here in the iron paradise, but we ain't playing tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes," the star captioned in the video. "You get lumped up every once in a while and things happen."

Throughout the video, a stream of blood can be seen running down the Mona star's face, and at one point, he wipes it off with a finger before licking it clean.

"That's good. That's real good," he said after tasting his own blood. "Back to work."

"Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set - I got lumped up and need stitches," Johnson continued in the caption. "Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later - rules of the house. And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce.

"Have a productive week, my friends - keep it light and a lil' fun, but get after it like a MF. [sic]"

News of Johnson's injury comes after he recently became the most followed American man on Instagram earlier this month, according to social media tracking website Trackalytics.

The actor dressed up in a bowtie and tucked into a bottle of his tequila brand, Teremana, and celebrated the achievement by sharing one of his recent life lessons.

"The life lesson I wanna share with you guys is to always speak your truth," Johnson said. "Always speak your truth and do your best to speak your truth with compassion, with a little bit of poise, with a little bit of dignity, with respect and with empathy, even when speaking your truth means you're gonna dive into some conversations that might make people a little uncomfortable."

The Rock then thanked his 200 million-plus followers for giving him a platform to speak his truth.

"And I want to tell you guys: thank you, thank you, thank you for, I mean, deep here in my bones, thank you guys for giving me the space to speak my truth," he added.
