Dwayne Johnson opens up about 'disappointing' beef with Tyrese Gibson

Share

The "Skyscraper" star admitted it was "pretty disappointing" when the 38-year-old actor blasted him last October, blaming him for delaying the ninth "Fast & Furious" movie, but insisted their feud was "one-sided" and he's never addressed his co-star's remarks.

Writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber wasn't trying to make an award-winning film, he was trying to make an action thriller that makes you get vertigo while enjoying watching Johnson beat up bad guys and hang from dizzying heights.

Gibson isn't the only "Fast" star that Johnson has been caught up in drama with. When asked which of his past co-stars he would select to be his running mate, he thought carefully before choosing Charlize Theron.

Of potentially running for president, Johnson made it clear that he's not ready just yet.

"Just to put it into context, the Washington Post posted a story and the gist of it was if I were to run I could have a legitimate shot at winning. I believe, because I have an incredible amount of respect for public office, especially President of the United States, requires years of experience and skillset and sharpening skillset".

The 46-year old actor is now busy shooting for Disney's Jungle Cruise with co-star Emily Blunt. When Cohen asked what the most unprofessional thing Johnson witnessed Diesel do on set was, Johnson said he'd "plead the Fifth". Johnson, who plays an amputee in the action movie, said Thursday, July 12, he is joining the Boston-based Ruderman Family Foundation, calling for more inclusion and opportunities for people with disabilities in the entertainment industry.

Johnson also spoke briefly about a beef that's no longer burning: the one with fellow wrestler-turned-actor John Cena. "Once it was all done, like all silly beefs like that, we were so cool". "I love them both, they're both my friends", he said.

"I was told at that time, "Listen, you can't talk about wrestling".
