Mirren threatened to beat Diesel for 'Fast &Furious' role

 Action star Vin Diesel says veteran actress Helen Mirren threatened to beat him up if he did not offer her a role in the upcoming "Fast & Furious" movie.

The 49-year-old actor has quipped that Mirren would have done anything to get a role in the popular film franchise, reported Female First.

"...All these Oscar-winning actors have wanted to join the cast and be part of the mythology. Charlize Theron is in it. Helen Mirren, the wonderful and amazing Helen Mirren, accosted me at a Golden Globes party and basically threatened to beat me up if she wasn't going to be in one.

"Having these actors on the films was adding another element and dimension to what some might write off as just another action movie," Diesel said.

It comes after Mirren said she was "very nervous" about starring in "Fast and Furious 8".
