Dwayne Johnson Says ‘Fast & Furious’ Crew ‘Quietly Thanked’ Him for Slamming Vin Diesel

[quote] Dwayne Johnson revealed in a new interview with Vanity Fair that crew members on the “Fast & Furious” franchise thanked him after he called out Vin Diesel as a “chicken shit” and “candy ass” in a viral Instagram post, which revealed the extent to which Johnson and Diesel had been feuding during the making of the “Fast” movies. The feud itself has been well documented over the years. Johnson admitted regret to Vanity Fair in going public with his frustrations over Diesel, but he stands by everything he said.

candy ass? 🤣

I mix them up sometimes. They play such similar roles in Hollywood. They're both bald, muscular and wear wifebeaters. They're both part-Black but racially ambiguous enough to play Italian, Hispanic or Greek types. Rock appears 100% straight though. Vin had gay rumors for decades.

Diesel is constantly late. When other actors show up on time, it makes their lives miserable because they end up waiting around for hours in full hair and makeup when they could have been sleeping late, going to the gym, spending time with their kids, etc. It complicates the shooting schedule and that creates lots of annoying problems for the crew to deal with (like how do we light this scene when we don't have enough time to finish it before the sun goes down).

That said, for the crews, it's awesome. Hollywood overtime on big budget movies is their bread and butter. Double overtime, triple overtime. It buys crew members new cars and downpayments for houses.

A friend of mine in the biz says that Johnson has an almost universally positive reputation with anyone that they’ve talked to that’s worked with him. I think this helps to explain his omnipresence in movies over the last decade. The idea that Diesel has some kind of technique for getting good acting performances out of people is, of course, preposterous on its face, lol

Yes, it's preposterous for Vin Diesel to criticize anyone's acting.

But Vin has been straightforward about what the feud is.

OTOH, Dwayne speaks in code about showing respect and treating people on the same level.

So we can surmise that Vin is telling the truth. And that Dwayne was pissed he was disrespected by Vin, who was a producer on the film and was above Dwayne.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Rock. He met his wife while headed to an men/women orgy, so I don’t know how straight that exactly is, you likely have to be a bit sexually fluid with a bunch of erect penii in the room with you. OP’s photo looks like they’re going to kiss.

Dwayne Johnson has a good reputation in the industry. Not Keanu Reeves level but great nonetheless. In an industry full of narcissistic muscle men type actors, he’s surprisingly mellow and “normal”. This is going back to his football and wrestling days, and when you’re a standout in three areas now (acting is the third), your asshole personality would be talked about eventually. There’s nothing but positive stuff about Johnson. Vin Diesel OTOH is a douche through and through.

Seems more like an ex-lovers spat than anything else. By the way, there have been rumors about "The Rock" about as long as there have been about Vin. There was a blind item years ago about a macho action-movie star with "chiseled features" who cruised truck stops in Southern California looking to suck dick. Chiseled.... Rock?

Penii is plural for penis, because there’s usually more than one erect one at an orgy. You would thank that’s likely the most difficult thing for a straight guy to look at while navigating the room…

by Anonymousreply 35October 15, 2021 2:09 AM

Team Johnson. I haven't been able to stand Diesel since he started acting like Paul Walker's widow.

And this exchange...

[quote] Over time, Diesel has voiced his own oblique observations about this situation. He has put down their differences to them being two alpha males (Johnson: “Sounds like him to say that, sure”); characterized Johnson, perhaps slightly patronizingly, as Hollywood’s second “multicultural megastar” whom he’s proud to see following in his footsteps (Johnson: “He talks like that”); and said that “I protected Dwayne more than he’ll ever know…but he appreciates it. He knows he only has one big brother in the film world, and that’s me.” (Johnson: “I have one big brother and it’s my half brother. And that’s it.”)

[quote] Then, this summer, in an interview in Men’s Health, Diesel returned to the subject, casting any conflict as the benign side effect of purposeful method manipulation on his part. “My approach at the time was a lot of tough love to assist in getting that performance where it needed to be. As a producer to say, Okay, we’re going to take Dwayne Johnson, who’s associated with wrestling, and we’re going to force this cinematic world, audience members, to regard his character as someone that they don’t know—Hobbs hits you like a ton of bricks. That’s something that I’m proud of, that aesthetic. That took a lot of work. We had to get there and sometimes, at that time, I could give a lot of tough love. Not Fellini-esque, but I would do anything I’d have to do in order to get performances in anything I’m producing.”

[quote] Reminded of this quote, Johnson at first simply bellows with laughter.

R39 They both have very healthy egos. Both sell tickets in the right project. Both are very lucky and have good attitudes in general. They happen not to be huge fans of each other and were both idiots for taking their irritation to the press. The feud is totally professional though and would be unremarkable if it didn't involve two superstars on one of the top franchises in history.

Hollywood is full of genuinely absurd behavior and mentally unstable actors. Vin is far more creatively involved in his own projects though, the Rock is more of a work for hire guy. That makes the Rock 1000 times easier to deal with under any circumstance. When you have someone willing to just show up on time and do the lines they're given, it makes life easy for everyone. Thats not necessarily the quality you want in an actual artist though.

If you want to see some great performances from both, watch the Rock in Pain and Gain and Diesel in Find Me Guilty or Pitch Black. They're actors, not action heroes in real life.

I'm not a starfucker, and typically could give a rat's ass about anybody in Hollywood. Dwayne Johnson is one of the exceptions. He's always come across as somebody who is truly grateful for his success, and doesn't seem to believe he's special because he's made it. I would think he understands stardom has more to do with being in the right place at the right time and that there are hundreds of better actors who weren't lucky like that.

I would never approach him in public to say hello, unless he had a flat or something. And I would believe pretty much anything he says. Esp. if he's going out of his way in this case. Usually I refrain from approving of one actor shading another. But if Dwayne says this, I've no doubt it's absolutely true.

R40 Vin Diesel has never given a good performance. He’s awful. Johnson isn’t Olivier, but he has the goods. Imagine Diesel attempting to cut any of the promos that the Rock was doing off the cuff in WWE 20 years ago—it would be the acting equivalent of that David Lee Roth live singing clip from Vegas last year.

by Anonymousreply 58October 18, 2021 12:12 AM

r56 People don't look like THE ROCK without steroid use. Most actors over 30 who get jacked do it with steroids to enhance the results.

Earlier use can fuck people up but now its common for (rich) men to take human growth hormone/testosterone to match what they naturally had in their early 20s. As you can imagine, if you are actually in your early 20's and at peak testosterone, injecting more into your body is a bad idea with permanent negative effects. But if you can replicate your body's own previous testosterone peak, you can have good effects.

According to a friend, the peaks are different for everyone so its actually helpful to keep old medical records to see what your body produced at that point. So young people reading this--get a testosterone reading done next time you do annual bloodwork. Hold on to that number and in 15-20 years, you'll be able to look awesome

I’m from the Lehigh Valley and the Rock grew up in Bethlehem. He has an excellent local reputation with many people saying how nice and down to Earth he is in person. I’ve never met him, but apparently he visits his Dad quite a bit. (Larry Holmes another hometown boy made good, enjoys an equally good reputation)

The Rock seems to eat for at least four hours a day. On top of that, it sounds from his various interviews that he works out for another 10 hours a day. If he works an eight-hour day on a movie set, what is that? Twenty-two hours? How does he find time to sleep and fuck? I'm sure he's at least bisexual, but how sexual can a person be at all if he's eating, working out and working for the entire day? I know he is paid extremely well for it, but his life sounds exhausting and rather joyless. Despite his ever-present "Rock" grin.
