Johnson reprises his role in the new "Fast and Furious" films
He praises the crew and women working on the film
The “Fast and Furious” cast family may not be as tight as we have believed.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has posted a video on Instagram with a caption that slams some unnamed male costars.
The actor is in the final week of filming the upcoming movie “Fast and Furious 8.” And while Johnson says “My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ‘em,” apparently its another story when it comes to some of the men he works with.
“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” Johnson writes in his caption. “The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
“Fast 8” is the latest film in the successful franchise.
The ensemble cast for the new film includes Vin Diesel, Helen Mirren, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, and Scott Eastwood.
But Johnson seems to be using his irritation as motivation.
“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,” he wrote in the caption of his video which shows him in character tossing a prison guard. “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.”
“Fast 8” speeds into theaters April 14.
