In 2016, he posted a photo on his verified Instagram account-he has since deleted it-in which he talked about shooting “Angry Destiny”.
“Some (male co-stars) acted like a standing man and a real professional, while others did not,” Johnson wrote at the time, which led to speculation that he was talking about Diesel.
“It caused a storm. But the interesting thing is…[it was] It seems that every crew member found me and either thanked me quietly or sent me a note,” Johnson told Vanity Fair. “But yes, this is not my best day, share this. I shouldn’t share that. Because in the final analysis, this is against my DNA. “
“This is a difficult role to embody, the role of Hobbes,” Diesel told Men’s Health. “My method at the time was to work very hard to help get the performances needed. As a producer, I said,’Well, we will accept the wrestling-related Dwayne Johnson, we’ audiences, which will force this movie world to take his The character is treated as someone they don’t know-Hobbes hits you like a ton of bricks.”
Johnson refuted this in an interview with Vanity Fair. He said: “I have been to this neighborhood many times. Unlike him, I am not from the theatre industry.”
“And, you know, I grew up and grew up differently. I come from a completely different culture and environment,” he said. “I will put my full effort into each project. If I feel that something needs to be rectified, dealt with, and taken care of, then I will do it. It’s that simple.”
“So when I read that, like everyone else, I laughed,” Johnson said. “I laughed a lot. We all laughed. I believe Fellini laughed somewhere too.”
CNN has contacted Diesel representatives for comments.
