For Lawrence, it’s Smith’s workaholic tendencies, he told PEOPLE, noting, "He likes to rehearse all the time.”

"That's funny,” Smith replied. "It's not a hate, but there's a fun quirk that makes me laugh about Martin all the time. He never takes two sips out of a water bottle.”

“He drinks the whole water bottle in one go, every time,” the actor said, adding, “It's like, 'Yo, man!' "
