Dwayne Johnson says crew members came up and thanked him after calling his Fast and furious co-star Vin Diesel on Instagram.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Johnson discussed his post made during the filming of The fate of the furious, which was aimed at an unnamed male co-star who was later revealed to be the series owner, Diesel.
“Some behave like stand-up men and real professionals, while others do not. Those who are not too hen can still do nothing about it. Candy asses, ”Johnson wrote at the time.
Johnson told the magazine that “the same old s ** t” made him do the job and that he regrets having published his frustrations.
He said, “I meant what I said. Definitely. I mean what I say when I say that. But expressing it in public was not the right thing to do. The actor and former professional wrestler also admitted that “it was not my best day”.
Johnson then revealed that despite the now deleted post causing a “firestorm”, the crew of the film was supportive: “But interestingly enough [it was] as if every single crew member found his way to me and either quietly thanked or sent me a note.
“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. I do not share such things. And I take care of that kind of bull ** away from the public. They do not need to know. That’s why I say it was not my best day. ”
Johnson also revealed that he only returned to make The fate of the furious, which was the eighth part of the series, on the grounds that he should not share a set with Diesel: “I would refrain from drama. I thought that was the best thing to do. To everyone.”
He also confirmed that the two met to try to resolve their differences: “Well, there was a meeting. I would not call it a peaceful meeting. I would call it a meeting of clarity. He and I had a good chat in my trailer and it was out of that chat that it really became crystal clear that we are two separate ends of the spectrum. And agreed to leave it there. ”
