Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says he is “proud” of the entire ‘Fast’ family.
Although The Rock recently hit out at some unprofessional male co-stars on the set of ‘Fast 8′, he shared a positive message on Instagram after he filmed shooting.
He wrote: “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.
“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. And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew – the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night – thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY (sic).”
He made no mention of Vin Diesel, who is widely believed to have been the focus of his disparaging comments in a previous post.
In his original rant, the former wrestler praised his female co-stars in the film, including Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez, but admitted it was a “different story” working with the guys.
The actor – who plays bounty hunter Luke Hobbs – wrote: “This is my final week of shooting Fast & Furious 8. There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one.
“An incredible hard working crew. Universal Studios Entertainment 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 s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.(sic)”
