Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s feud was over ‘who gets the hottest girl’

A new report says that Dwayne Johnson’s feud with Vin Diesel was over “who gets the best action scenes, who gets the hottest girl, who shows off their body more, and who gets the most face time.”

Dwayne Johnson will return to star in the ninth Fast & Furious film after burying the hatchet with Vin Diesel, a new report says.

Johnson and Diesel, the stars of The Fate of the Furious, the latest in the record-breaking action series, have reportedly moved on from their much-discussed feud. Johnson had posted an angry Instagram message in August 2016 claiming that a male co-star had got his “blood boiling” on the sets of the eighth film.

TMZ now reports that the feud began because of “real estate”. By this, they mean that the two lead stars were involved in an argument over “who gets the best action scenes, who gets the hottest girl, who shows off their body more, and who gets the most face time.”

“It became a big issue for Dwayne and Vin, but ultimately, Dwayne acknowledged it was Vin’s movie -- he’s listed #1 on the call sheet,” the report continued. Diesel is indeed the face of the franchise, having appeared in all but one film since its 2001 debut. He is also given top billing - ahead of Johnson - in The Fate of the Furious.

Johnson’s had ranted because Diesel, allegedly, arrived late on set. The two exchanged heated words.

At the time, a studio source said, “What happened is over, and no one expects there to be any lingering effects. When it comes time to promote the movie, this will have no bearing.”

The two were also conspicuously kept apart for the film’s global promotions. The Fate of the Furious debuted on April 14 worldwide and became the most successful movie opening in history.
