Nobody wants to be responsible for making The Rock's blood "legit" boil, but the actor was fuming when he infamously attacked some of his male Fast and Furious co-stars on Instagram last year.

This lead to ongoing reports that he was feuding with fellow cast member Vin Diesel, and addressing these claims, Dwayne Johnson reflected diplomatically to Entertainment Tonight: "Just like in life, you have different philosophies and people have different fundamental philosophies on how you do things.

"And again, the most important thing is just the movie. So I'm happy that we're here in New York City, I'm happy the fans love it."

However, in a separate interview over the weekend, Diesel insisted that the pair are really close, and that Johnson is known as "Uncle Dwayne" in his household.

Speaking to USA Today, the actor said: "I don't think the world really realises how close we are, in a weird way.

"I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don't think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work this franchise. In my house, he's Uncle Dwayne.

"I protect everybody including Dwayne. I protected Dwayne more than he'll ever know. And it doesn't matter. He doesn't have to know. But he appreciates it. He knows it. Dwayne has only got one Vin in his life.

"Dwayne Johnson only has one big brother in this film world and that's me."

Johnson slammed some of his unnamed male co-stars as "chicken shit" and "candy asses" for apparently behaving unprofessionally on the set of Fast and the Furious 8 in an Instagram rant last August.

"There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one," the San Andreas star and wrestler wrote.

"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."

The latest installment of the action franchise will be released in the UK on 12 April.

Diesel, Johnson, Jason Statham and Michelle Rodriguez reprise their roles, while Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren and Nathalie Emmanuel will make their debut in the action franchise.
