I need this beef between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson to NEVER end. I know, they had supposedly squashed it, but I think Diesel may have put that beef back on the burner with his recent comments, taking credit for Johnson’s performances in the Fast & Furious franchise.
THR caught up with Johnson who is out there promoting Jungle Cruise, and the interviewer asked him about what Diesel said. I love this response, too, because it almost certainly will keep things heated between the two. It also informs his decision not to return for Fast & Furious 10 & 11…
“I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I’ll leave it at that. And that I’ve wished them well. I wish them well on ‘Fast 9.’ And I wish them the best of luck on ‘Fast 10’ and ‘Fast 11’ and the rest of the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies they do that will be without me.”
Even Emily Blunt jumped in at Diesel’s expense, assuring that we’ll never see her behind the wheel at any point…
“Just thank God [Diesel] was there. Thank God. He carried you through that”, Blunt said.
I love it. Keep this shit going forever.
Watch Johnson and Blunt in Jungle Cruise on July 30th.
