In 2016, he posted a photo on his verified Instagram account – which he has since removed – where he talked about filming “The Fate of the Furious.
“Some (male co-stars) behave like stand-up men and real professionals, while others do not,” Johnson wrote at the time, leading to speculation that he was talking about Diesel.
“It caused a firestorm. But interestingly enough …[it was] as if every single crew member found his way to me and either quietly thanked me or sent me a note, “Johnson told Vanity Fair. But yes, it was not my best day to share it. I should not have shared that. Because in the end, it goes against my DNA. “
“It was a tough character to embody, the Hobbs character,” Diesel told Men’s Health. “My approach back then was very hard love to help get the show where it was supposed to be. As a producer, we said, ‘Okay, we’ll take Dwayne Johnson, who’s associated with wrestling, and we’ will force this cinematic world, ‘ audience, to regard his character as one whom they do not know ‘- Hobbs hits you like lots of bricks. “
Johnson pushed it back in his interview with Vanity Fair, saying, “I’ve been around the block many times. Unlike him, I did not come from the theater world.”
“And you know, I came up differently and was brought up differently. And I came from a completely different culture and environment,” he said. “And I go into every project and give everything. And if I feel like there are some things that need to be squared away and handled and taken care of, then I do it. And it’s just that simple.”
“So when I read it, like everyone else, I laughed,” Johnson said. “I laughed out loud. We all laughed. And somewhere I’m sure Fellini laughs too.”
CNN has contacted Diesel representatives for comment.
