Remember when Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson called “Fast and Furious” co-star Vin Diesel a ‘candy ass’ in a shady Instagram post back In August? Well, the man recently voted People magazine’s most sexiest on the planet is gearing up for the next installment in the franchise, and says he has no regrets about blasting Diesel.
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.”
Johnson took to Instagram in August to write that his female co-stars were always a pleasure to work with, but his male co-stars…not so much.
“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” he wrote “The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
While The Rock did not specifically call out Diesel, subsequent 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.
After various reports came out about the two stars going at it on set, Johnson told fans that their tension would come across 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 actor and former wrestler wrote.
