The Rock Says He’s Not Sorry For Calling Out Vin Diesel
The Rock isn’t about to send any apologies Vin Diesel’s way anytime soon. While talking his upcoming film ‘Moana’ with the LA Times, he revealed that when he publicly went off on Vin Diesel for being an unprofessional crybaby on the set of Fast & Furious 8 earlier this year, he not only meant every word he said, but he felt like he did the studio a favor:
In August, he posted a candid Instagram from the set of “Fast 8” calling out his male costars for being “candy asses.” “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” he wrote in the post. “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 post immediately went viral, sparking a string of TMZ reports about a beef between Johnson and costar Vin Diesel. A few months later, Johnson seems to have no regrets about the post.
“I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time,” he said with a knowing smile. “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.”
WELP. The sexiest man alive has spoken. That’s that.
