    It wasn't all dramatic action and stunts on the set of Pain & Gain

    Director Michael Bay talked with E! News on the red carpet for Paramount Pictures' CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas last night, and dished on some funny moments shared with Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg while shooting the film. 

    "Dwayne, you have to keep a 3-foot perimeter," Bay revealed, "because he has a woman professional just lubing him up with baby oil. You get the stuff all over your outfit, you wreck your clothes.

    NEWS: Pain & Gain costars Wahlberg and Johnson talk stunting

    Being the go-to person to rub the erstwhile Rock's bod down with baby oil? Sounds so tedious...

    Bay also noted, "Mark could pound chicken very good. He ate nine meals a day, he gained 40 pounds, he's like a machine. He told me, ‘Week two is going to be my peak so get all your beauty shots week two, week three, 'cause then I got to lose 40 pounds and go on a Denzel movie next.'" (Wahlberg was referring to his upcoming crime drama 2 Guns, costarring Denzel Washington.) 

    Wahlberg and Johnson talked with E! News about their flick during their press junket, telling us how they're not afraid to do their own stunts. But, hmmm, they conveniently left out the baby-oil and chicken-pounding details.

    Pain & Gain hits theaters April 26.
