Even cops "know their role" in the presence of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The superstar wrestler-turned-actor revealed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Wednesday what usually happens when he gets pulled over by police, and has the clip for you.

Johnson admitted he does speed at times, though the last time he got a ticket was in 1998 for going 105 mph in a 70 mph lane.

Johnson said he's been pulled over about "30, 40 times since" then, with not a blemish on his record.

What’s the trick? Johnson said he’s always very careful to follow the proper protocol, as in turning on his lights and keeping his hands in view of the officers. Oh, and being famous doesn’t hurt either.

Said Johnson: "The police come up to me and they come up really slow, and say, "Aw hell its the Rock! Its the Rock! -- Well, you be safe Rock.'"
