After a few more passive aggressive social media posts, it became clear the candy ass in question was Diesel. But we still never found out what when down between the two… until now!
Johnson confirms he and Diesel “were not in any scenes together” in the new interview, revealing that their trouble basically came down to a disagreement about professionalism. He told the publication:
“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer. And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach movie-making and collaborating.”
Makes sense, given that Johnson’s original post blasted male costars that don’t “conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals” on set.
“It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not. But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have.”
Wait, so the drama is completely over? Not so fast…
“Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”
There’s our alpha male!
The Rock is “not quite sure” whether he will return for the ninth Fast & Furious installment, but confirms he’s hard at work making the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw spinoff, in which he will star alongside Jason Statham, “as good as it can be.”
