The Rock shares Vin Diesel feud for the first time
The conflict between the two stars of the famous franchise “Fast and Furious” Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson started during the filming of the eight episode. Their conflict was so serious that Universal's representative had to come to the set to reconcile it to avoid affecting the filming.
Recently, during the promotion of the new film Rampage, The Rock straightly admitted to Rolling Stone about the unresolved conflict between him and Vin Diesel.
Johnson confirmed to Rolling Stone that he and Diesel's scenes were shot separately.
In Fast 8, Dwayne Johnson's Hobbs character and Vin Diesel's Toretto have a lot of important scenes. But everyone could see that both of them never appeared together in a same scene.
“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer," Johnson told Rolling Stone. "And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating."
"It took me some time, but I'm grateful for that clarity," the star added. "Whether we work together again or not."
In 2016, Johnson posted a photo on Instagram -- which he has since removed -- in which he talked about filming "The Fate of the Furious."
"Some [male co-stars] conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't," Johnson wrote. "The ones that don't are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es."
Johnson and Diesel pretended to get on well with each other.
Johnson posted an Instagram of a clip from filming and wrote, "You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict."
"Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs," Johnson continued. "To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution."
"I'm sorry to announce that if Dewayne [sic] is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce [sic]," Gibson wrote on an Instagram posting. "You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours......... close your eyes dude you're a 'Clown.'"
"That is correct," the superstar said. "We were not in any scenes together."
Diesel told USA Today last year he felt some things with Johnson had been "blown out of proportion."
"It's not always easy being an alpha" the actor said. "And it's two alphas. Being an alpha is sometimes a pain in the (butt)."
