In Hobbs and Shaw speelt Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) Hattie Shaw, de zus van Jason Stathams Deckard Shaw.
Kirby is 31 jaar oud en Statham 52. Aangezien hun broer Owen (Luke Evans), de slechterik van Furious 6, 40 is, lijkt dat plaatje ondanks het leeftijdsverschil tussen de acteurs nog enigszins te kloppen.
Op internet wordt echter de spot gedreven met flashbacks waarin Hattie en Deckard in hun jeugd samen op het slechte pad raken, terwijl ze onmogelijk op hetzelfde moment kinderen of tieners kunnen geweest zijn.
#HobbsAndShaw is a film that suggests Vanessa Kirby (b. 1988) and Jason Statham (b. 1967) were children at the same time

Who wants to guess the age difference between The Rock and Vanessa Kirby? It probably goes without saying which one is older. #HobbsAndShaw

as a #FastAndFurious fanboy, i can suspend my disbelief. 20 mile long runways & cybernetic superhumans: a-ok in my book. but in #HobbsAndShaw, they really expect us to believe Vanessa Kirby & Jason Statham are around the same age?? no way, josé! that is where i draw the line!!

In HOBBS & SHAW, Vanessa Kirby and Jason Statham play siblings, which isn’t outrageous, but a flashback sequence suggests that they’re two years apart at most. They’re 21, in case you’re wondering how much this movie doesn’t give a fuck.

Despite all of the unbelievable things in #hobbsandshaw what bothered me most is that Jason Stathan’s (real age 52 but looks 62) character is apparently suppose to be close in age to Vanessa Kirby’s (real age 31 but looks 21) character since they are shown as children together.

Btw, the actors are 21 years apart. pic.twitter.com/7X2EyPBZJm

the most unrealistic part of the Fast And The Furious franchise is that Jason Statham, 51, and Vanessa Kirby, 31, are playing brother and sister, she's too old to play his wife
