My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone.. it's always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to "die hard" and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that's a family – there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth

Life as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t be easy. While he’s settled comfortably into his role as Hollywood’s first choice for a leading man — at least in films where there are gonna be a ton of explosions — he’s still got an image to live up to. An image that he crafted during his tenure as one of the WWE’s biggest stars in his generation. So when one of his male co-stars on Fast 8 didn’t quite live up to his expectations he took to Instagram to vent a bit about what he felt was an unprofessional co-star.

He called him a candy ass. He didn’t go as far as to name names, or even to prefix “candy ass” with “roody poo” like he would have in a wrestling promo.
