Imma take you back — all the way back to August of 2016. Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock aka your husband has just posted this short video to Instagram with a very, very, very long statement about not liking some of his male costars in the new Fast film.
The caption read:
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL 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 shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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'll finish strong.

You see this face? This is the face of someone who DGAF.
And now that we're in November of 2016, do we think Dwayne wants to take back his comments?
Naaaaaaaaah. In an interview with the LA Times, he said:
I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time...Would Universal [Pictures] have preferred that didn’t happen? Sure, we talked about it. The irony is after that and as they do their tracking and all their analysis, the interest shot through the roof to a whole other level.
