Vin Diesel Clears Up 'Feud' Rumours With The Rock
Vin Diesel has spoken out about rumours that he and the Rock had a 'feud' while on set of the new Fast & Furious movie.
It all started when The Rock posted a status to his Facebook page last August calling out some of his male co-stars.
He wrote: "This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.
"An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment has been great partners as well. 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 shit 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.
"Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part.
"Final week on FAST 8 and I will finish strong."
At the time, TMZ reported that it was directed at Vin Diesel.
Vin Diesel has now opened up about their relationship, and dismissed the rumours.
He told USA Today: "I don't think the world really realises how close we are, in a weird way,
"I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don't think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work this franchise. In my house, he's Uncle Dwayne."
He continued: "I protect the franchise. I protect everybody including Dwayne. I protected Dwayne more than he'll ever know. And it doesn't matter. He doesn't have to know. But he appreciates it. He knows it.
"Dwayne has only got one Vin in his life. Dwayne Johnson only has one big brother in this film world and that's me."
It's good to see that the pair are still good friends.
Fast & Furious 8 hits UK cinemas on 12 April 2017.
