During the last day of shooting in the U.K., Diesel, 52, captured himself taking a break on set beside the Bodak Yellow rapper.
“It’s day 86 here on the set of Fast 9,” he said. “I know I’m exhausted.
“We all gave every single thing we could for this movie — put it all out on the table, put it all out there.”
At that point, Cardi B, 27, chimed in, saying “I’m tired, but I can’t wait,” suggesting that she, too, acted in the film.
“I ain’t gonna front, I think this is going to be the best one,” she said in the Instagram video.
“I need to take a nappy-nap,” she added, as Diesel snorted and laughed. “I’m ready to take my nappy-nap,” she repeated with a wide grin on her face.
