Normally when we think of Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, we think of a hunky, smiling teddy bear of a man. With recent films like Central Intelligence and his upcoming role in Disney’s Moana, we can’t really think of a nicer guy in Hollywood. However, it seems that The Rock has finally come to the end of his rope with some of his Fast 8 co-stars. Filming for the eighth movie inThe Fast and the Furious franchise wrapped this week, and The Rock took to his Instagram page to express both gratitude for the franchise and his disgust for some of his male co-stars. Check out the adrenaline filled post for yourself below.
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
So who could The Rock be talking about.? He already acknowledged his hardworking and “amazing” female co-stars which include Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Helen Mirren. However, the 44-year old actor had some choice words for some of his unnamed male cos-stars. With the late Paul Walker out of the picture, the men of Fast 8 include, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Scott Eastwood. Johnson said of the men, “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s— to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
So which of the men are standup gentlemen and which of them are “candy asses”? We know that The Rock has worked with Gibson, Bridges and Vin Diesel before, so perhaps so of the newcomers in the bunch are causing a bit of friction on set. With such a massive cast, we suppose a bit of tension is to be expected. Or, this could be years of built up animosity.
Either way, it looks like when Fast 8 hits theaters next April, we won’t have to speculate any further, Apparently, The Rock was so annoyed with these guys during filming that it will be easy to spot on camera. The former WWE wrestler elaborated, “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.”
We’re just glad The Rock finished strong without any further incident, but we definitely want to know who was getting under his skin. Let us know who you think the “candy asses” are in the comments below.
