It seems that The Rock was about to whoop some candy ass for real on the set of Fast & Furious 8 as the former WWE champion voiced his frustration and disappointment with some of his male co-stars.
In a post on Instagram, Johnson said that there’s no other franchise he’s involved in that gets his blood boiling more than the Fast & Furious franchise. He praised his female co-stars who said they’re always amazing however his opinion on his male co-stars is a different story.
“Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” he wrote. “The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
It’s not usual that you hear The Rock talking bad about fellow co-stars but this apparently was so bad that he couldn’t just hide it. “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.”
Fast & Furious 8 will be released in April 2017.
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
