Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel are not friends. They have not been seen for four years. In The latest round of animosity, Johnson vehemently rejected Diesel’s invitation to return to the Fast and the Furious franchise, and accused his former co-star of “manipulating” his (Diesel, i.e.) children by bringing in the late actor Paul Walker, one of the lead actors. In the series.
In November, Diesel shared a still of their characters from The Fate of the Furious on Instagram and said it was “time” with his “younger brother” Johnson. He said he promised Pablo (Vin Diesel’s nickname for Paul Walker) that he would make the best fast & furious ending.
“I say this with love … but you must look, do not leave the franchise inactive, you have a very important role to play,” Diesel continued.
In a CNN interview, Johnson said: “I told you so [Diesel] Straight back I would come back to the franchise. I’m firm but still cordial with my words and I have always said that I will always support the cast and root for the success of the franchise, but I have no chance of coming back, ”he said.
He added, “Win’s recent public post is an example of his manipulation. I did not like him raising his children in the post, as well as the death of Paul Walker. Leave them out of it. We talked about this months ago and came to a clear understanding.
Johnson joined the franchise in 2011 with Fast Five as an agent for the Diplomatic Security Service. He starred in Fast & Furious 6 of 2013, Furious 7 of 2015 (2015) and The Fate of the Furious of 2017.
Fans had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. The first lash of the stars’ differences came to us when Johnson shared a very revealing post on Instagram. And the quarrel became public. The now-deleted post reads, “My female co-stars are always awesome and I love them. My co-stars are a different story though. Some behave like stand-up men and true professionals, while others do not. Those who don’t can do nothing about it anyway. Candy a ** es. When you see this movie next April, I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood seems to be boiling irregularly — you’re right.
Later, while talking to Vanity Fair, when Johnson understood what he was saying, I regret posting it on the social media platform. “It caused a storm. Still interesting[it was] Every single staff member would come up to me and quietly thank me or send me a note. But, yes, it’s not my best day, I share it. I should not share it. Because at the end of the day, it’s against my DNA. I do not share such things. And I will keep such bulls away from people, ”said the superstar.
Speaking about the next meeting with his former co-star, Johnson said, “He (Diesel) and I had a good chat in my trailer, and it was clear from that chat that we were two different endings. Of the spectrum. And agreed to leave it there.
When Johnson refused to do F9, he co-starred with Jason Statham in Spin off Movie Hobbs & Shaw.
Earlier in 2021, Vin Diesel attributed the feud between them to the “tough love” he was giving Johnson to bring his best performance.
In an interview with Men’s Health, Diesel said, “It’s a tough role for Hobbes to play. My approach at the time to helping get that performance where it was needed was a very strict love. The producer said, ‘Well, we’m going to take Dwayne Johnson, who’s associated with wrestling, and we’re going to force the movie world and the audience to consider his character as a stranger. – Hobbes hit you like a ton of bricks. That’s something I am proud of, that beauty. It took a lot of work. We had to get there and sometimes, at that point, I could give a lot of tough love. Not Felinisk, but I do all I can to get any show I build.
Responding to the comments, Johnson told Vanity Fair, “For one part of me I think I have no chance of honoring those bulls with the answer. But here’s the truth. I’ve been around the block a lot of times. Like him I did not come from the world of drama. And, you know, I came up differently and grew up differently. And I come from a completely different culture and environment. And I go into every project. And if I feel that some things need to be squared and handled and taken care of, I will. And it’s very simple. So when I read it, I laughed like everyone else. I laughed out loud. We all laughed. ”
