Dwayne Johnson has written a lengthy social media post slamming his male co-stars on the latest installment of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has slammed his 'Fast 8' co-stars as unprofessional and "candy asses".
The 44-year-old actor - who stars in the next installment of the action franchise alongside the likes of Vin Diesel, Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham, Tyrese, Kurt Russell, and Ludacris - admitted he is thankful filming on the movie is finally coming to an end as, apart from working with actresses Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez and a great backroom staff, the experience genuinely makes his "blood boil".
He wrote on Facebook: "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 (sic).
"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."
However, Johnson believes the tension on set has actually improved his performance in the film, where he plays the Government bounty hunter Luke Hobbs.
He explained: "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 will finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses (sic)."
Though his castmates haven't commented on the actor's rant, Eastwood recently admitted he doesn't understand why his co-stars always go back to their trailers after filming a scene as his famous father, legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood, always advised him not to retreat to his private space during shooting.
He said: "I'm on this 'Fast and the Furious' movie right now, and everyone goes back to their trailer.
"I stick around and say, 'Why are you setting up the shot like this?' I want to learn."
