The actor assumes his words with regard to his playing partner, but regrets having spoken about it publicly. He also confides that the film crew thanked him for stepping up to the plate.
Known for his good-naturedness, Dwayne Johnson rarely attacks his rivals in public. Five years after the fact, the star regrets having made public his argument with Vin Diesel on the set of a Fast and Furious.
In August 2016, the former wrestler had denounced on Instagram some of his playmates who were behaving like “wet hens” and “chochottes”. A spade addressed to Vin Diesel, the face of the saga. The enmity between the two men was then such that they did not share any scene in it Fast and Furious 8 (2017).
Five years later, Dwayne Johnson recognizes in the columns of the Hollywood Reporter that “it was not [son] best day “, but he remains in his position:” I take what I said. Sure. I meant exactly that. But saying it publicly was not the right thing. “
“It created a controversy. But what was very interesting is that every member of the team contacted me to thank me. Yes, ok, it was not my best day. I never should have shared This. Because it breaks my confidentiality contracts. I don’t have to say that sort of thing. I deal with that kind of bullshit out of the ears and eyes of the public. They don’t need to know that. “
The Rock absent de la suite
The saga will end without the charismatic actor. When asked about the fate of the hit franchise, The Rock blurted out at Hollywood Reporter last July: “I wish them good luck. I wish them good luck for the 9th. And also for the 10th and 11th, and the rest of the episodes of the saga, because they will have to ride without me.”
The rivalry between the two men continues to this day. Vin Diesel recently asserted than the excellent performances of Dwayne Johnson in Fast & Furious were his doing, thanks to his “a little rough” methods. To which Dwayne Johnson replied: “I laughed, but I laughed so hard. I think everyone laughed at that,” he quipped. “I will not say more.”
