Dwayne Johnson ‘laughed hard’ at Vin Diesel’s ‘tough love’ statement about their feud

On Wednesday, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson responded to his former co-star Vin Diesel’s ‘tough love’ statement about their feud with laughter.

‘I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I’ll leave it at that,’ the 49-year-old action star told THR Magazine.

‘And that I’ve wished them well. I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me.’

The bald California natives’ beef originated in 2017 when Dwayne wrote a thinly-veiled, since-deleted Instagram post referring to an ‘unprofessional candy a**’ on the set.

Shortly after, Life & Style reported that the feud was just ‘a huge prank’ that was ‘all for publicity.’

Fans of the street-racing heist franchise speculated that the third-generation wrestler was simply talking smack in the tradition of scripted and choreographed antics at the WWE.

And it certainly worked – The Fate of the Furious amassed an eye-popping $1.068B at the global box office that year despite mixed reviews. 

The 49-year-old action star told THR Magazine: 'I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I'll leave it at that. And that I've wished them well. I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me'

Last month, Vin (born Mark Sinclair) told Men’s Health he was simply trying to get a better acting performance from the Teremana Tequila co-founder.

‘I could give a lot of tough love,’ the 54-year-old SAG Award nominee – who plays Dominic Toretto – told the mag.

‘Not Felliniesque, but I would do anything I’d have to do in order to get performances in anything I’m producing. It was a tough character to embody, the Hobbs character. My approach at the time was a lot of tough love to assist in getting that performance where it needed to be.’
