The Rock was too big to fit in the cool cars in Fast 8

The Rock is a pretty big guy. In fact it turns out he is so big that he cannot fit into any of the cool cars on The Fate of the Furious.

Yep, Dwayne Johnson has revealed his stature is so massive that he cannot drive smaller cars such as Lamborghinis and Corvettes.

Appearing on Today, the hosts asked Johnson why he is always given big trucks to drive rather than the rumbling cars that are a staple of the franchise.

"I just can't fit in it, that's the thing!" he answered.

However, he managed to put a spin on the whole thing, taking a dig at his co-stars by adding: "All the other guys can fit in it because they're all small".

Ouch.

Hype is certainly at fever pitch for the eighth movie in the Fast & Furious franchise, with the first reviews already in.

And it seems the movie has got a fairly divisive reception so far from critics, with many praising its entertainment factor, while other critical of the plot.

The Fate of the Furious will follow Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) as he is seduced into a world of crime he cannot escape by a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron).

Johnson will return as Hobbs, while the movie will also see appearances from Jason Statham and Helen Mirren.

The Fate of the Furious hits UK cinemas on April 12.
