I've also heard it as "take what [he] say[s] with a grain of salt." -- do not put faith in his words; do not believe all of what he says. Usually, this is used in consolation (after an insult) or as a warning (after boasting), at least in the cases that I've heard it used.

"Don't buy into it" or "don't buy into everything [he] say[s]" is the only similar one that I can think of off the top of my head, but....
