Dwayne Johnson has spoken out about his feud with Vin Diesel, explaining that he 'meant what he said' but regretted it nonetheless.
The 49-year-old shared a post on his Instagram account back in 2016 where he said that his female costars on The Fate of the Furious were 'always amazing' but the men were 'a different story'.
On his rant about 'male costars', Johnson wrote: "Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s**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," Johnson went on.
The pair subtly feuded back and forth for a couple of years until they had a 'peace meeting' in which they attempted to settle their issues.
Speaking recently to Vanity Fair, he said of the 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."
Deciding to recount the events, Johnson defined what he meant by the term 'candy ass', explaining: "A candy ass is something you don't want to be. And the best way that I can describe a candy ass is: Life is so much easier, I have found, when you are not full of s**t. And a candy ass is completely full of s**t."
Well, there's that cleared up.
When asked what had gone on when he posted on social media, Johnson went on to say: "Nothing specific happened, just the same old s**t. And that just wasn't my best day."
He then went on to add: "It caused a firestorm. Yet interestingly enough...[it was] as if every single crew member found their way to me and either quietly thanked me or sent me a note. But, yeah, it wasn't my best day, sharing that. I shouldn't have shared that. Because at the end of the day, that goes against my DNA.
"I don't share things like that. And I take care of that kind of bulls**t away from the public. They don't need to know that. That's why I say it wasn't my best day."
Just for clarity, he continued: "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."
Speaking about how the pair left things, Johnson spoke of a meeting between them.
"I wouldn't call it a peaceful meeting," he said, adding: "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."
To have been a fly on that wall...
