“I could take my grandma and put her in a cape, and they’ll put her on a green screen, and they’ll have stunt doubles come in and do all the action,” said Statham. “Anybody can do it.”
Statham was probably trying to say that he prefers action movies with practical stunts rather than CGI, but since much of his own audience probably overlaps with the audience for superhero movies, this probably wasn’t the best way to phrase it.
Also, he isn’t exactly making friends among the many actors who do make a lot of CGI-based Marvel movies.

Oh well. As press tour PR mishaps go, it’s no Jeremy Renner.
