Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson like to make each other laugh. For some reason, that makes the world a brighter place to have that knowledge in our heads. Like many productions, the film that they were working on with Gal Gadot, Red Notice, is currently on a shutdown due to COVID-19.

On Tuesday night (May 5), Reynolds joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. With Red Notice shutdown, Reynolds talked about working with Dwayne Johnson and how to make him laugh.

“I’m guessing we might’ve finished the movie if we didn’t spend 90 percent of the time dicking around, laughing. I’ve known Dwayne for like 15 years. So, we tend to spend time trying to make each other laugh, which is a really irresponsible thing to do with Netflix, their money.”

Apparently, the key to breaking The Rock is saying his lines “27 percent faster with a swear word at the end.” Honestly, that would probably break us too. Reynolds also added that Johnson usually needs to leave the room.
