Dwayne Johnson said that he sees no reason to talk with Tyrese Gibson after their feud.
Dwayne Johnson is not afraid to tackle his various feuds!
The 46-year-old “Skyscraper” star appeared on Thursday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” and was asked about the many claimed that between him and co-star.
When a caller asked if Johnson had spoken with his “Quick 8” co-star, Tyrese Gibson, following the 39-year-old actor October 2017 comments about him on social media, he replied, “The answer is no. No, we haven’t talked.”
“That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I was friends with Tyrese for a very long time,” Johnson further explained. “I always feel like an ox requires two people to actually jump. It was very one-sided, and he had voiced his opinion a lot on social media and apparently he was going through some things in his personal life, but no, we haven’t talked and I don’t see where we want to be.”

Johnson added, “For me, there is no need to have a conversation.”
In October last year, Tyrese struck the action stars, blaming him for the reason of the franchise’s ninth film had a delayed release date. He has also made comments about Johnson’s character, Hobbs, is getting a spin-off film.
Johnson can beef with Tyrese, but a co-star, he has nothing but love for Charlize Theron. The actor called his “Fate of the Furious” co-star when a fan asked him who he would choose as a presidential running mate if he were ever carried out.

“Charlize Theron. She is amazing, she is a bada–, she is smart and she is beautiful and tough,” he gushed of the Oscar-winner.
Of potentially running for president Johnson made it clear that he is not ready just yet.
“It was serious when the Washington Post posted an article to say if I were to walk, then I would win,” he noted. “At the end of the day, there is no delusions here, you need to be, I think, I have a huge amount of respect for the public office, especially President of the United States, is a process of years of experience and skills and the sharpening of skills.”
As for his other alleged Hollywood feuds, Johnson remained silent during a game of “Plead the Fifth” when asked about his apparent beef with his other “Fast 8” co-star, Vin Diesel. In 2016, he allegedly called the 50-year-old actor a “candy–” and “unprofessional” on Instagram. However, while on ‘ Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Johnson would not confirm or a list of unprofessional behaviour, instead choosing to plead the fifth.

Although the action star would not go into detail about this alleged feud, a source close to the production of the “Fast & Furious” films ET tells that the probability of Johnson and Diesel ever appear on screen together again is unlikely.
A second source tells ET that it is the “billion dollar question” whether Johnson would ever work with Diesel or Tyrese is back on a film. The source says that time will tell and if it happens, it would not be for a while.
While on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen”, another fan wanted to know more about Johnson’s past beef with fellow WWE wrestler John Cena, that he was open to discuss.
“I had [the WWE], and he had done a series of radio interviews and someone had referred me to say, ‘Hey, is The Rock ever coming back?’ And he said, ” I’m not quite sure,’ and I didn’t like how he said it,” Johnson explained. “Sit with me. Years later when I went back, I spoke with Vince McMahon, and we thought, ‘What if we were doing this kind of thing?’ Fortunately, the greatest box-office record in WWE history. Once it was all done, as is all the stupid that like that, we were so cool.”
Also on ‘ Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Johnson clarified his joke, and ET’s Kevin Frazier last week that he was the one for his “Baywatch” co-star, Priyanka Chopra, with his “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” co-star, Nick Jonas.
“I was very happy for them. I love them both, they are my friends,” he said. “I was just asked recently, someone asked me, someone in the press, ‘Oh do you have anything to do?’ And I thought, ‘Oh, are they happy?’ And they were like, ‘It looks like she’s happy.’ And I said, “Wonderful, I take full responsibility!'”
