The Shocking Truth Unveiled After the Most Romantic Kiss in Fast 8
Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron have shared the screen in the Fast and Furious franchise ever since the eighth movie, and their collaboration continued in the latest installment, Fast X. Throughout their on-screen partnership, the two actors displayed remarkable chemistry, whether portraying devious or passionate dynamics, depending on the flow of the story. This dynamic worked out well for both the characters they portrayed and the actors themselves.
In the realm of Hollywood, feuds among actors are not uncommon, often resulting in franchises being affected, actors departing from their iconic roles, and other repercussions. Within the Fast and Furious franchise, tensions emerged between Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, but they were not the only actors to experience discord. Theron and the star of Guardians of the Galaxy also found themselves at odds.
One memorable scene in the Fast and Furious series featured Charlize Theron as Cipher and Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto sharing a passionate kiss in Fate of the Furious. However, the two actors had contrasting accounts of the experience. While Diesel boasted about it, claiming that Theron had thoroughly enjoyed the kiss, the actress herself had a different perspective.
Charlize Theron candidly revealed, “He’s literally going around saying I had the best time of my life. They’re like, ‘Do you think she liked it?’ and he’s like, ‘Oh yeah, oh yeah, she loved it.’” Theron addressed Diesel’s spreading of falsehoods about their on-screen kiss, asserting that he actually kissed like a dead fish. She wanted to set the record straight, as having lies circulated about her was not something she appreciated. Theron felt it was important to share her side of the story and counteract the narrative that Diesel had been perpetuating.
On the other hand, Vin Diesel consistently boasted about the passionate nature of their on-screen kiss, asserting that Theron responded with equal intensity, suggesting that she thoroughly enjoyed the moment. However, Theron was resolute in debunking Diesel’s claims, presenting the exact opposite of what he had been promoting.
Diesel proudly stated, “A kiss cannot lie, lips don’t lie. No, they didn’t. She OWNED it.” While Diesel took pride in their on-screen chemistry, Theron was determined to ensure that he didn’t establish a reputation for her that was contrary to her own experience. She actively worked to debunk his claims, expressing a different perspective on their on-screen kiss.
