Hint—it’s not Vin Diesel.
After Johnson’s scorching Instagram post from earlier in the week, in which he said that some of his unnamed co-stars were “candy-asses,” speculation ran wild as to who it was Johnson was referring to.
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
It was soon revealed that Johnson and Diesel had been clashing on-set—apprently Johnson was not pleased with Diesel’s diva-ish, unprofessional attitude.
Now, sources for TMZ are saying the crew is backing up Johnson’s accusations, saying Diesel was frequently “30 minutes to an hour late to shoot scenes,” simply because he’d not left his on-set trailer.
Apparently, Diesel so disliked the 7AM call times on-set that he’d frequently make the cast and crew wait till 10AM to accommodate him.
The sources also said that Diesel’s arrogance was “out of control,” and that, due to his status as a producer for the film, he’d refuse to listen to anyone on set, and even go so far as to goad cast members—including Johnson—by criticizing their acting.
And what about Johnson?
Sources said he was a total professional, friendly, easy to get a long with, and always on time.
My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone.. it’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to “die hard” and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that’s a family – there’s gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth
Yesterday, Diesel posted a video to Instagram with a cryptic message that fans should “give him a second and he will tell them everything,” also making references to “people who stay positive.”
So far, Johnson hasn’t fired back.
