Nothing is cattier than two gym bunnies yanking on each other’s weaves. Or lack thereof. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson employed his weapon of choice, Instagram, to announce that Fast 8 has wrapped production and to thank his co-stars. He left one out.
“Finished strong and on to the next. That’s an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind,” he captioned a photo of himself boarding a private jet. “Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I’ve ever seen.
You’ll notice that Vin Diesel was not included on the list of kids whose yearbooks The Rock would deign to sign at the Senior Class BBQ. Things have been tense between the two dome-headed actors ever since Johnson referred to a certain “candy-ass” actor on the set whose identity was swiftly narrowed down to either Vin Diesel or Helen Mirren. And Helen Mirren could trounce The Rock and then calmly sip a cup of tea whilst reclining on the remains. TF is Helen Mirren doing in Fast 8? Is she building an addition on to her house?
On Diesel’s part, he’s waiting for The Rock to forget about him. And then, when he least expects it, he’ll strike! WITH GOSSIP.
As previously reported, the two men have yet to confirm they’re at odds, but the Last Witch Hunter star, 49, has repeatedly teased fans via Facebook that he’ll tell us “everything” once he watches the film back.
In other Rock news, he used the same Instagram post to sell his upcoming Jumanji flick as “a continuation.” So – a sequel. With Nick Jonas, Kevin Hart and Jack Black. Did I already type “Eff, Hollywood!” today? Good. Bonnie Hunt and the ghost of the barely-in-the-grave Robin Williams would like a word with you four.
