When you think of practical effects, the last thing that crosses your mind is fake armpit sweat.

After all, why would a movie call for its actors to look all sweaty and dirty? Wouldn't that pose a problem instead?

If you're shooting a movie set in a burning hot desert or a tropical jungle it makes a lot of sense for your characters to look a bit disheveled and scruffy.

To hear staff members literally dabbing actors with fake sweat is something that sounds made up, but it's not. 

James Gunn recently shared how John Cena needed help getting his armpits looking less tidy by misting it with fake sweat.

The director even joked that "on most movies, makeup artists are constantly dabbing the sweat off of actors."

According to James, the staff had to "constantly keep the actors sweated up and dirty."

John Cena seems to be having a lot of fun filming The Suicide Squad.

The WWE superstar is set to return as the Peacemaker and star in his TV show on HBO Max.

According to Gunn, Peacemaker has already finished its production for its first season earlier this month.
