A lot has been said and written about the clash of the titans in real life. I am talking about two of the biggest superstars of this planet, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. Last year, towards the end of the shoot for Fast and Furious 8 titled, The Fate of The Furious, Dwayne Johnson took to social media to vent out his anger against his co-star Vin Diesel. He wrote, “My female co-stars are always amazing, and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story,” adding that “some” are “chicken shit” and “candy asses.” His reaction came in response of frequent tardiness of Vin Diesel, who arrived late for his final scene with Johnson.
In fact during the promotions of Fast and Furious 8, according to a report by THR, sources claimed that the two tough-guy actors are being kept from one another as the Fast team continues its press tour in the run-up to the F. The Gary Gray directorial is all set to hit theaters on April 14. “They’re keeping them separated as much as possible,” says an insider.
But finally here’s a good news for the fans out there, their feud is finally OVER. According to a report by TMZ, “after meeting privately several times to iron out their issues, Johnson and Diesel are now “good” and “1000% in” for Fast 9. TMZ further mentions, the sources are opening up about the feud … one explaining it was all over “real estate.” In movie language, real estate is all about how much an actor shines — who gets the best action scenes, who gets the hottest girl, who shows off their body more, and who gets the most face time.
