Fast And Furious Star Says The Conflict Between The Rock And Vin Diesel Is A “Delicate Situation”

WWE legend and Hollywood A-Lister Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson spoke with Vanity Fair several weeks back on the personal and heated conflict he has had with Fast And Furious co-star Vin Diesel, where Dwayne said in a now deleted social media post that his female co-stars are always amazing, but his male co-stars are a different story as some of them conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals and others don’t and the ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway.

The Rock said:

“My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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. #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses.”

The Rock also talked about how he meant everything he said, but for it to be said publicly wasn't the right thing to do and that he did try to have a meeting with Vin Diesel, but it wasn’t “peaceful” and it was clear that they are two separate ends of the spectrum and they agreed to leave it there.

The Rock said:

“No, I meant what I said.” “For sure. I mean what I say when I say it. But to express it publicly was not the right thing to do.”

“Well, there was a meeting.” “I wouldn’t call it a peaceful meeting. I would call it a meeting of clarity. He and I had a good chat in my trailer, and it was out of that chat that it really became just crystal clear that we are two separate ends of the spectrum. And agreed to leave it there. [We are] philosophically two different people, and we approach the business of moviemaking in two very different ways.”

“It’s the philosophy of going into work every day. Looking at everybody as equal partners. And looking at the studio as equal partners. And looking at the crew, regardless of where you’re at, either on the call sheet or otherwise, as equal partners—with respect and with humility, and being respectful of the process and every other human being who is putting in just as much time, just as much hard work and sweat equity, if not more. And I think it’s always been important to me to always be straight up and look somebody in the eye. And if you say you’re going to do something, do it.”

Ludacris, one of the other stars of Fast And Furious, recently spoke to US Magazine about the ongoing conflict between The Rock and Vin Diesel and said he doesn't want to speak for either one of them, so he will just leave it the way it is because it is a “delicate situation.”

Ludacris said:

“All I can say is that, from what I understand, I know those are two grown men.” “I believe The Rock has spoken on that, and I don’t want to speak for either one of them. So, I would leave it to whatever their words are and keep it that way, because it’s a delicate situation.”
