in Diesel Declined to Lose a Fight Against Jason Statham in Fast & Furious 7 ‎


During the making of Fast & Furious 7, Vin Diesel came up with a unique idea to ensure that both he and his co-star, Jason Statham, were treated equally on screen. To prevent any unfairness, Diesel proposed a numerical system to the film crew that would assign a number to each hit or punch delivered by either actor. This way, the total amount of hits received by both actors could be shared equally, preventing any one actor from being hit or punched more than the other. The Wall Street Journal reported this amusing story, highlighting Diesel’s concern for fairness in his work.
