Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has responded to his reported beef with his Fast & Furious franchise co-star and producer Vin Diesel.
The Rock has finally responded to Diesel's recent comments about his performance in the action movie franchise. A while back, Diesel claimed he gave The Rock some tough love in order to make him perform his role in the Fast Five instalment of the movie as Hobbs better.
"I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I'll leave it at that."
The superstar also suggested that he won't be part of Fast & Furious in the future.
"And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me."
Social media users shared mixed reactions to The Rock's beef with Vin Diesel. Check out some of their comments below:
"Y’all, this is work. These dudes are absolutely best friends behind the scenes, just generating a little heat for the junket (and it worked!). I don’t actually believe this is true, but just want all the bald muscle boys to be friends, so I’m sending a 'yes' into the universe, as it were."
Brick HardMeat wrote:
"I honestly don’t know what to believe any more. Like part of me is like 'these dudes clearly hate each other IRL, it wasn’t an act' and another part of me is like 'ok so they’re gonna drive a dump truck full of cash up to the Rock’s house and then the final instalment is gonna be the big return of Hobbs'."
"Clearly that’s what is going to happen. They don’t even ever have to be in the same room with each other. Peter Jackson revolutionised the ability for actors to not have to act with each other. They could call it The Fast and The Furious: The Hobbset. 500 million dollar box office guaranteed."
Vin Diesel explains feud with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on Fast Five set
In related news, Briefly News reported recently that Fast & Furious franchise actor and producer Vin Diesel has explained his feud with co-star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
The popular Hollywood actors have worked together in the franchise since 2011. They first worked on the set of the movie during the filming of Fast Five. Diesel played the character of Dominic Toretto while The Rock portrayed the role of Luke Hobbs.
Fox News reports that The Rock even went as far as calling out an actor from the franchise he didn't name on social media. Many fans assumed that he was talking about Diesel, according to the publication.
Diesel told Men's Health that he thinks their difference of opinion originated because Diesel was a tough producer. Diesel further said that he would do anything in order to get excellent performances in "anything I'm producing".
"I could give a lot of tough love."
