Shedding light. Vin Diesel is getting honest about his past feud with Fast & Furious costar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Diesel, 53, is a producer on the franchise so when Johnson 49, took on the role of Luke Hobbs, he had an opinion about what that should look like.

“It was a tough character to embody, the Hobbs character. My approach at the time was a lot of tough love to a*sist in getting that performance where it needed to be,” the Guardians of the Galaxy actor said in the latest issue of Men’s Health. “As a producer to say, ‘OK, we’re going to take Dwayne Johnson, who’s a*sociated 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.”

Diesel added that he’s “proud” of the aesthetic they created for Hobbs and just wanted to make sure it was executed right.

“That took a lot of work. We had to get there and sometimes, at that time, I could give a lot of tough love,” he shared of his conversations with the former wrestler. “Not Felliniesque, but I would do anything I’d have to do in order to get performances in anything I’m producing.”

Reports of the pair’s feud first surfaced in 2016 when they filmed the eighth movie of the franchise, The Fate of the Furious. During the last week of filming, The Rock posted via Instagram that some people on set “conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s–t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a*ses.”

He added, “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.”

Two years later, the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star shared insight into the conversations he had with Diesel.

“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer,” the Young Rock creator told Rolling Stone magazine at the time. “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 clarify. Whether we work together again or not.”

He added: “I wish him all the best and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have. Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”

In February 2019, Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez opened up exclusively with Us Weekly about the beef between the actors and why it didn’t come as a surprise to her.

“Boys will be boys,” the Texas native, 42, said at the time. “And you know what? There’s always some sort of conflict when tribes meet and they get bigger. I think that’s the world, that’s globalization. We’re seeing it right now with nationalism, all over the planet. So I’m not surprised that the tribe back home is arguing too!”

Sounds like a PR save
Multiple sources say Vin is a diva
And the Rock is the Rock
Egos were off the charts
Long story short, Vin is the producer and was throwing his weight around, the Rock called him out about it which divided the cast and crew, new Fast movie out so he's playing the "it was to push the character for a better movie experience"
Sorry Vin but....

Beefing with the Rock (whether he’s right or not) is a lose/lose situation. He’s so beloved that people will blindly take his side.

The Rock isn't the one trying to to give acting pointers lol.


Imagine you're a lead actor and a worldwide famous celebrity. In your movie while filming you hear "CUT" as you're filming a long scene, a scene you don't want to do another take on.

Vin comes out starts whispering in your ear. "You did that all wrong. You see, when I was Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy ...."

You're telling me you wouldn't tell that n*gga to STFU right there

Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Vin Diesel -- three of the most high-profile stars of the Fast & Furious franchise -- have it in their contracts that their characters can’t lose f*ghts in the films. A 2019 Wall Street Journal story quoted several people involved in the films -- editors, producers, etc -- who spoke about how the actors have measures in place to avoid coming across as ‘wimps’.

The report said that “according to producers and crew members on the films, Mr. Statham, 51 years old, negotiated an agreement with the studio that limits how badly he can be beaten up on screen. Mr. Diesel, 52, has his younger sister, a producer on the films, police the number of punches he takes. And Mr. Johnson, 47, enlists producers, editors and f*ght coordinators to help make sure he always gives as good as he gets.”
this sh*t is so random

Vin is a known diva, and came out gay and then that magically disappeared to save face for his "action hero" look. I dk but seems like Vin was just upset a better version of him was getting the limelight, he started the franchise but it got better with other character additions sh*t hit him personally.

It was a tough character to embody, the Hobbs character.




Uh, whys he talking about this sh*t like its a Daniel Day Lewis performance? He's a monotone caveman for 90 minutes. And the rock is some variation of superman that is invincible and has catchphrases. The Oscars aren't calling.

When I read that all these n*ggas got "equal damage" clauses in their contracts.... meaning "You get on punch in on me, then I gotta get one punch on you" and invincibility clauses, I knew this franchise was done

Such goofy sh*t
