In a recent Instagram post, Vin Diesel defied previous fat-shaming rumors as he shared a shirtless selfie to spread Valentine’s Day cheer. The 48-year-old action star appeared in great shape, with a white towel draped around his waist and a bouquet of red roses prominently displayed in the foreground. This heartfelt gesture showcased Diesel’s confidence and served as a reminder that appearances can be deceiving.
Vin has been in Toronto, Canada filming xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. He was spotted on Saturday at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Canada. ‘Happy V day…,’ the chiseled actor wrote in the caption for his more than 17 million followers on Instagram.
Vin was there to support his xXx co-star Kris Wu, 25, who played for the Canadian team that was coached by rapper Drake. The Fast And Furious franchise star has been in a long relationship with Mexican model Paloma Jimenez. They have a seven-year-old daughter Hania, a five-year-old son Vincent and an 11-month-old daughter Pauline.
Their youngest child was named in honor of Vin’s friend and Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker who died in November 2013 in a high-speed car crash.
Vin also posted a video on Instagram of him holding his daughter. ‘Can I be your first Valentine’s?,’ he asked the baby. The third installment in the xXx franchise will be in cinemas in 2017.
