This week, Baller Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted a photo on Instagram complaining about his co-stars in Fast 8. “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” he wrote. “The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
But who are these “candy asses” (a slang term from the mid-20th Century referring to a timid or cowardly person)? Certainly it’s not Scott Eastwood or Jason Statham or Tyrese Gibson or Kurt Russell, all of whom are starring in Fast 8. It definitely couldn’t be Ludacris, also a Fast 8 co-star. Could it be Street Sharks enthusiast Vin Diesel, who, like Johnson, is a strong man with little hair?
It couldn’t Diesel, could it?
It’s Vin Diesel, a man, who when standing beside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is easily confused with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (hint: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the bald one).
We’re told The Rock has butted heads with Vin during the production, in part because V.D. is a producer and has made decisions that didn’t sit well with the former wrestling champ. Our sources say The Rock and Vin had a meeting on the Atlanta set mid-day Tuesday … partly because tensions were running so high it was almost impossible to shoot scenes. We do not know if they resolved their issues.
Okay, next question: If Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, fought who would win? My money is on the bald one.
