Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is so productive that it seems like he doesn't sleep.
As it turns out, he doesn't.
The actor and former WWE wrestling star told Variety that he gets just three to five hours a night.
"The only thing that's regimented is I have to wake up before the sun gets up," he said. "And I have my two hours alone when no one else is up and the house is quiet."
During those early-morning hours, The Rock said he plans his day, meditates, and works out.
"I often sacrifice two hours of sleep just so I can have the quiet two hours that I need before the whole house wakes up, including the animals," he said.
The Rock has a lot to do these days. In addition to starring in "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," out next Wednesday, he's a lead actor in the "Fast and Furious" franchise and has about a dozen forthcoming movies, according to IMDb. He's also having a baby, spends time to motivate kids, spends all day on social media, and enjoys the finer things in life.
The Rock told Variety that his sleep schedules aren't always regimented, and are "funky and off." But he still takes time in the morning to orient himself.
"I need the mental time in the beginning, and the next thing is my training time," he said. "Those are my two anchors, and once I'm able to anchor myself, I'm able to go to work, and then I get in my pickup truck and drive to set. I'm able to work 10, 12, 14 hours if I know that I've centered and anchored my day in the beginning."
