The biggest box office star in America has a major issue with at least one Fast 8 co-star, and he’s not holding back his disdain. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Instagram last night to blast his male co-stars for what he says is “candy ass” behavior.
“My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway,” he penned in a controversial IG caption.
The message has a lot of folks wondering just who The Rock is talking about? We all know Tyrese rivals Patti LaBelle for biggest diva in Hollywood, but he didn’t immediately take to social media to fire back at Johnson, so it’s likely not him. That leaves Jason Statham, Vin Diesel and Scott Eastwood. Sources close to production tell us that The Rock could likely be talking about Statham, but we have not been able to confirm that.
Regardless, The Rock’s diatribe isn’t likely to impact his bottom line. Last year, he was ranked the world’s #1 international box office star, with his films raking in approximately $1.48 billion in revenue.
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken shit 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. 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😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I’ll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
