Dwayne Johnson Has No Regrets About Starting His Feud with Vin Diesel
After the actor made headlines over the summer when he called out some of his co-stars by accusing them of being divas, it was later revealed that he was talking about Vin Diesel. In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Johnson opened up about the feud, admitting that he has no regrets about how he handled the situation.
“I was very clear with what I said. I’ve been in the game a long time,” the “Sexiest Man Alive” explained to the newspaper. “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.”
Although he did not specifically call out Diesel, Johnson’s posts seemed to allude to the actor. Diesel even posted his own Facebook video to address the drama.
