Dwayne Johnson calls some Fast 8 co-stars "chicken shit" & "candy asses"

08.09.2016

UPDATE:  According to TMZ, the male co-star in question that The Rock butted heads with was none other than fellow actor/producer Vin Diesel. A production source revealed that Johnson felt that Diesel "made decisions that didn't sit well" with him, hence the beef. The two apparently had a "secret" sit down meeting in Atlanta to quash the issue, which has come up just a week and a half before production wraps. It's no secret that there are some big egos involved here and while we tend to avoid catty shit like this, given that Dwayne Johnson is always such a positive force it's pretty interesting when someone riles him up enough to lash out publicly. Anyway, that's the dealio for now. Hopefully, everyone can just bro-hug and move on. - PS

F. Gary Gray has been shooting FAST 8 for some time and uploading behind-the-scenes videos when he can. The last one we saw was pretty mild, featuring Dwayne Johnson helping to couch a girl's soccer team. Pivotal plot point, undoubtedly. However, as Johnson's shooting schedule comes to an end, he had a few words to say about the production. Most notably, he lifts up the bulk of the cast and crew on their hard work, especially the women. However, it looks he didn't find some of his male co-stars very agreeable! The following was posted on his Facebook account and makes for one entertaining read!

Dwayne Johnson on shooting FAST 8:

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.

Johnson has always come off as a very charismatic and hard-working guy, so when he says he's been working with a couple of candy asses, I'm inclined to believe him! Not everyone you see in these action pictures are as tough as they appear! He didn't name any names, so we can only guess who he may have been talking about. Anyone up for placing any bets? Statham, perhaps? Either way, I'll definitely be watching this flick in theaters, trying to figure out who!

FAST 8 hits theaters on April 14, 2017.

Statham...

...is a notorious prima-donna. With the amount of money these guys get paid... and the amount of perks and constant privilege... you'd think they'd be cool and a little more "production friendly." Especially Statham... since he's spent so much time around Stallone: The "Hardest Working Man in Hollywood." The Rock is a cool, hard-working dude. Some of these other dudes are total pussies.

Ok maybe it is Scott Eastwood

Interview with Esquire with him and his dad, Scott complains about the cast going to their trailers and not hanging around, refers to them as Candy-asses.

Early word

Early word is that Vin IS a bit of a diva, but it's Tyrese Gibson that thinks he's gods gift to the set. So my money is on him for sure. Eastwood's old man told him to never be a slacker on set - hang out and learn stuff. So I doubt it's him.

Everyone knows Diesel is a primadonna and pretty much the complete antithesis of the character he plays in these movies.

Considering one of the past episodes of Ballers had The Rock making a good spirited dig at being a better looking version of Vin Diesel, I seriously doubt any of that was aimed at Vin.

I mean, I have no doubt Statham knows a few moves from studying martial arts, but he's a fake fighter, and fake tough guy.

Just my humble opinion.

Is he being serious? And I know this is an adrenaline fueled, action movie, but I'm pretty sure it's still all make believe, and actors shouldn't necessarily be expected to not be "candy asses."

The article's copy reads that the Rock helps _couch_ a girls' soccer team. Should it read that he helps _coach_ one? I have not watched the trailer.

Dear reader: We have consulted our Editor, a Mr. Spellcheck, and he has concluded that the word 'couch' was indeed spelled correctly.

My money is on Vin

It was either Total Film or Empire had a set visit to Fast 6 and The Rock said that Vin had a whole gym to himself and that he was only there to make Vin look good.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that's noticed with every Diesel movie he makes these Steven Seagal like speeches, reeks of ego and creative control.

Wow, I hardly see The Rock pissed off in any interview. He must be really pissed at those said co-stars.

Hmm, I'm trying to think who of the male co-stars in this franchise would be difficult to work with.

I've heard Vin Diesel has been pretty tough to work with on-set. Most of his "love of family" stuff about his co-stars has, reportedly, just been a bunch of bull shit. But still, Johnson has worked with him on movies 5-7 in this franchise. So why now would he have a problem?

Maybe it's Statham, who I didn't know was back for this movie. But Statham has never been rumored to be

Maybe it's Statham, who I didn't know was back for this movie. But Statham has never been rumored to be difficult to work with. And again, they worked together in Fast 6. So why now would they all of a sudden be having issues?

My guess, unfortunately, is Kurt Russell. Not sure how KR would be difficult, seems like an ok guy to me. But who knows.

Only other guess would be Tyrese who was probably whining about more screen time now that Paul Walker (RIP) has passed.

My money is on Tyreese. No way it's Kurt Russell. The guy is notoriously easy going and a blast to be around. He's been quoted as saying stuff like "if you think acting is a hard job, then you're in the wrong business". I love Kurt. [link] IS playing Jack Burton in the Big Trouble in Little China remake..but Kurt has expressed zero interest good or bad in this project. But he DID wish them luck.

Hmmm Tyrese was good friends with Paul Walker, alot more than Vin Diesel who never seemed close to Paul until he died. Also The Rock's character seems less like Vin's equal with each new sequel.
