The Rock was too huge to fit in almost all the cars in 'Fate of the Furious'

If you’ve watched any of the Fast and Furious films with The Rock in, you’ll notice that he’s always in a big old truck, and everyone else gets to zoom around in sleek, fancy sports cars. Why is this? Well, it’s pretty simple: he’s too hench.

He’s too bloody tonk and massive to fit in any of the supercars. He made an appearance on Today to talk about the upcoming movie, and when quizzed about his noted absence within the cockpits of the smaller, zippier beasts, he confirmed it:

“I just can't fit in it, that's the thing!”

And how come everyone else gets to drive them? Well, NEWSFLASH, Einstein: “All the other guys can fit in it because they're all small.”

Lovely little bit of shade there from The Rock, who’s most likely having a nice dig at Vin Diesel. They had big time beef during the filming of the movie, and have even been kept separate on press tours. That’s not stopping the odd cuss from leaking out though, is it? All publicity is good publicity. Also, beef is my favourite meat.

I reckon they should just get in the ring and fight it out, but then what do I know? Either way, I’m so ridiculously psyched for this movie, I can hardly stop my thighs from shaking.

Watch the full interview below:

The Fate of the Furious is out in cinemas on 12 April.
