While promoting his new Disney Pixar film Inside Out 2 — which is currently dominating at the box office, by the way — Paul sat down with CinemaBlend to talk about his character.

He's the voice of Embarrassment in the movie; a big pink sweetie pie who wears purple pants and a matching purple hoodie. In the interview, the reporter compared Paul's voice performance to that of Vin's Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.

“You’re like Vin Diesel now,” the reporter from CinemaBlend said. To which Paul replied, "Please don’t say that. I like to think I’m on time and approachable."

"Sorry, I love people, but when I hear stories about Hollywood actors who get paid really well and mistreat people, I out them constantly,” Paul continued. “And it’s a blast.”

Paul didn't go into detail about the alleged mistreatment, but, unfortunately, he isn't the first celebrity to speak out against the Fast & Furious star. Vin and Dwayne Johnson had a public feud for years, and Dwayne even left the franchise after falling out with Vin on set.

"Some [male costars] conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t," Dwayne wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. "The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling — you’re right."
