For these Suicide Squad co-stars, nothing is considered NSFW. 

John Cena hilariously recalled the moment when cast mate Margot Robbie revealed that she used to sleep next to a life-size cardboard cut-out of Cena. And no, it's not what you think.

Robbie's ex-boyfriend was "obsessed" with the WWE star, as she admitted during the July 21 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, but let's just say she was more than a little nervous to tell Cena on the The Suicide Squad set.

"She didn't want to tell me," Cena shared with E! News' Daily Pop correspondent Victor Cruz during the film's premiere on Aug. 2. "Then she got up the courage to tell me, and that is a bit awkward because it was in their bedroom for two and a half years. Certainly the cardboard me has shared some intimate moments."

Cena, clad in his Peacemaker DC comic book character attire, joked that his "ridiculous" outfit was a no-brainer for the red carpet.

"It's couture, it's custom made to my body," he explained. "It feels great. It snugs the bits it needs to be snugged, and gives you the room where you need the room."

Robbie is also ready to hire the IRL Cena—not his non-cardboard cut-out—if she ever needs to move. "He can do the heavy lifting," Robbie quipped. But she has one caveat: "The outfit is imperative." 

See Robbie explain why it's "surreal" to be at premiere of The Suicide Squad, and why co-star Jai Courtney is the perfect party pal, in the clip above.

The Suicide Squad premieres in theaters and HBO Max on Friday, Aug. 6.
