Can you smell-ell-ell-ell-ell what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is cooking on the set of Fast 8? Of course, you can, because it’s your favorite dish: a hot pot of FEUD.
On Monday, the Rock took to Facebook to air grievances about some unnamed male co-stars:
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.
Among the other actors in Fast 8 are Vin Diesel (who I don’t believe could make anyone this angry), Ludacris, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, and Scott Eastwood. Diesel, Ludacris, Russell, Statham, and Tyrese have all appeared in the Fast & Furious franchise before, so it’s harder—though not impossible—to imagine them being difficult on the set/not having a good relationship with filmmakers. Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, is the rookie of the group and, as of now, our most likely candy-assed contender.
Watch as former Jezebel writer Rebecca Rose goes full Beautiful Mind to figure it out:
Whomever it is, the Rock is wide awake to their bullshit.
