Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Disses His ‘Fast 8′ Male Co-Stars as ‘Candy Asses’
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is not happy with some of his male co-stars on Fast & Furious 8.
During their final week of filming, the actor went to Instagram to share his distaste for his male co-stars. Although The Rock claims that his female co-stars are "always amazing," he says that the men "are a different story."
"Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't," it read. "The ones that don't are too chicken s--- 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." Yikes.
Luckily, the blood boiling is exactly what's needed for his character, a Diplomatic Security Service agent, Luke Hobbs, who's known for tossing enemies around onscreen. (In the clip above, Hobbs is seen tossing a prison guard.)
"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," said The Rock.
This the eighth part of the franchise which includes an ensemble cast of Vin Diesel, Helen Mirren, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, and Scott Eastwood.
It's still unclear just who The Rock is talking about, although, we might have a few ideas. Tyrese was under fire by fellow TGT member, Ginuwine, last year. After the "Sweet Lady" singer went to Instagram to air out their dirty laundry, Ginuwine called him a "diva" who was trying to "manipulate the situation publicly." We can't say for sure though, only The Rock can smell what's cooking.
According to TMZ, The Rock's co-stars aren't happy about the post--or the attention. "Our sources say the co-stars -- male and female -- are especially upset because filming wraps in a week and a half and, as one put it, 'This is a hell of a way to end it,'" TMZ reports.
