If you thought the biggest Fast and the Furious feud was between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, co-star Charlize Theron could be a fresh new candidate.

Diesel was not best pleased to hear that Theron had disputed his original claims that she really enjoyed kissing him on-screen in the recent installment of the action franchise.

In a dramatic scene in the movie, Theron's evil dreadlocked hacker Cypher kisses Diesel's goodie Toretto to signal that Toretto has turned his back on his friends and family.

During an interview to promote the film, Diesel claimed that the actress really enjoyed it because hell, it's Diesel, and her "lips don't lie".

"Charlize Theron is not a bad kissing partner to have," he told USA Today. "A kiss cannot lie, lips don't lie. No, they didn't. She OWNED it."

Appearing later on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, a baffled Theron pointed out that Toretto isn't supposed to derive pleasure from their kiss, because Cypher is doing a "horrible thing" to him.

"I just don't get it," she told DeGeneres. "I'm the crazy chick that's doing this horrible thing to him and, as he should've, his character is just standing there frozen, like a dead fish."

On his suggestion that she could have derived pleasure from it, she added: "I like a bit more movement in my men."

Diesel returned to DeGeneres's chat show today, and the kiss was obviously brought up again, along with Theron's "dead fish" comments. Diesel immediately interrupted and jumped out of his seat to shout: "DEAD FISH?!

"Do I look like a dead fish?!"

When DeGenres went on and mentioned Theron's remark that she likes more movement in her men, he exclaimed: "First of all, you don't come on to Ellen with the wonderful animation Finding Dory and compare me to a dead fish!

"Right or wrong?!"

"I don't know how that solved anything," Degeneres responded, "but that's fine."

Probably for the best to wrap it up there.
