Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is getting ready for the next installment of ‘Fast and Furious’ and says he has no regrets calling Vin Diesel a ‘candy ass’ in a shady Instagram post earlier this year.
via NY Daily News:
“I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time,” he told the Los Angeles Times.
“Would Universal [PICTURES] have preferred that didn’t happen? Sure, we talked about it. The irony is after that and as they do their tracking and all their analysis, the interest shot through the roof to a whole other level,” he added.
Johnson took to Instagram in August to write that his female co-stars were always amazing, but his male co-stars were a different story.
“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” he wrote “The ones that don’t are too chicken s–t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a–es.”
While The Rock did not specifically call out Diesel, subsequential posts seemed to allude to the actor more and more. Diesel even posted his own Facebook video to address the drama.
“Proud of our collective, stay positive—I mean that—don’t beat anybody up,” he said with a smile.
Various reports came out that the two hot-temprered stars were going at it on set and Johnson ultimately told fans it would be evident on the big screen.
“When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling — you’re right,” the 44-year-old wrote.
“Fast 8” is due out on April 17, 2017.
We love Vin, but if these two were to fight our money would definitely be on Dwayne.
