On Monday evening, it was date night for Jason Statham as he stepped out with model girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the Hollywood premiere of his newest thriller.
Though the 49-year-old was promoting “Mechanic: Resurrection,” he also commented on another film franchise he is a part of —“Fast & Furious” — and the recent rumors of a feud between Vin Diesel and The Rock. He told “Extra” on the red carpet, “They’re two grown-up men and whatever it is, I’m sure they can sort it all out. Dwayne’s a good friend of mine. If he had any problems with me, he’d be the first on the phone or knocking at my door, so we’re good.”
Moving on from the drama, Jason also expressed how thrilled he was to work with Jessica Alba, who showed off her hot bikini bod in “Mechanic: Resurrection.” He smiled, “Keeps all the men jealous.”
Jason is playing the gritty Arthur Bishop in the second installment of “The Mechanic,” and did some of his own stunts like he usually does in his films. “I’ve always been keen to throw myself around… For me, the toughest stuff and the more technical stuff is a lot of the hand-to-hand fighting because it requires a bit more finesse, a bit more training. To jump off a building or do the high stuff, you just need a bigger set of balls,” he said, laughing. “You can sort of grow those as you get older."
"Mechanic: Resurrection” hits theaters August 26.
