Dwayne Johnson shined in 'Fast & Furious,' says Vin Diesel

Actor Vin Diesel has made an effort to bury the hatchet with Dwayne Johnson and has praised the WWE wrestler-turned-actor for his work in "Fast & Furious" franchise.

In a social media rant, Johnson had slammed an anonymous male co-star, and there are speculations that his post was targeted towards Diesel, 49.

However, in a Facebook live video, the action star praised all his co-stars including Johnson,44.

"The reason we brought Dwayne Johnson into Fast 5 was because of you! There was a girl named Jan Kelly who said, 'I would love to see you work together on screen.' So the role that was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones, we gave it to Dwayne and he shined in it," Diesel said in the video.

Despite Diesel's support, the "San Andreas" star has remained quiet.

In an Instagram message after wrapping "Fast 8" he thanked Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Tyrese Gibson but there was no mention of Diesel.
