Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson's feud is a thing of the past now. Diesel, who stars as Dominic Toretto in the beloved Fast and Furious franchise, took to social media to wish The Rock on his 45th birthday with a photo.
In the picture, both the actors are wearing white shirts, looking at each other and flashing big smiles. Referring to Johnson's Fast And Furious character, Luke Hobbs, Diesel wrote, "To look back at what we have accomplished. Shoulder to shoulder, against impossible odds. Proud... Happy Birthday Hobbs..."
However, recently the Guardians Of The Galaxy star cleared the air around the feud rumors and told USA Today that things were blown out of proportion. The 49-year-old actor said, "I don't think the world really realizes 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 [for] this franchise. In my house, he's Uncle Dwayne."
"I protect the franchise. 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. Dwayne has only got one Vin in his life. Dwayne Johnson only has one big brother in this film world and that's me," the XXx: Return of Xander Cage actor said.
Despite the reported tension in the past Diesel admitted that he is rooting for his co-star Johnson. "I'm always rooting for Dwayne. I'm the first multicultural mega star in Hollywood. They didn't exist. To see another multicultural star come up is something I am very proud of."
