During one such moment, The Rock teased Emily Blunt by speaking about her body odor. When the host asked if it was hard for the both of them to sit next to each other for a chat, The Rock jokingly responded by stating that Blunt does not use deodorant.

The Rock said, “Yes, this one doesn’t use deodorant. So, you can imagine that.” Blunt was shocked by this statement and reacted by raising her hands. Dwayne Johnson used his wit, pushed her arms, and said, “arms down!” However, he clarified himself and said, “I am kidding.”

The film was loved by both the critics and the kids, and their on-screen combo was appreciated as well. Like Kevin Hart, Blunt and Johnson also share a friendly relationship.
