'Candy asses': The Rock is mad at his Fast and Furious 8 co-stars

The cast and crew of Fast 8 hard at work in Iceland for the eighth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is not someone you want to go pissing off.

The American Samoan actor and former professional wrestler is 196cm tall and weighs 118kg.

But some of his male co-stars on the eight instalment in the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fast 8, have managed to make Johnson mad.

The Fast and the Furious 7's cast includes, from left, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, the late Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster.

Johnson started off praising the women he works with in the film, who include Charlize Theron, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster.

"My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em," he said.

"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*** 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."

However, Johnson thought his anger would feed well into his performance in the film.

"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," he said.

Johnson's comments have caused speculation about who exactly he is talking about.

Fast 8 also stars Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell, Kristofer Hivju, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris.

If professionalism is the main criticism it seems unlikely that Eastwood was the target of Johnson's hard talk.

Speaking to Esquire recently, Eastwood cast shade on some of his co-stars for returning to their trailers after shooting had finished instead of hanging around with the crew.

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."
