Mark Sinclair, better known as Vin Diesel, is one of those celebrities you just can’t help but love. Even though he usually plays a tough guy in movies, there’s so much more to him. In fact, he has a whole other side to him that we don’t get to see very often. He’s a great father and companion to his girlfriend; he loves his family and fans, who he also considers family; and his social media is full of positivity.
1. A great father.
Vin Diesel doesn’t show much of his private life on social media, but when he does, his posts are always full of love and smiles, and everyone can see he’s a family man! He and his partner Paloma Jimenez have 3 children, Hania, Vincent and Pauline, and they are his world. She says her pride in her children is through the roof and she is always proud of them.
2. A loving partner.
The 53-year-old actor met his partner in 2007 and they are still together. This shows how special their bond is and that they make a great couple. In an interview, the film star didn’t hold back when talking about how much he admires his partner. She’s my rock, she’s so stunningly beautiful on the inside. She is everything, she is the perfect mother,” said Vin Diesel.
3. His looks can be deceiving – he’s actually a big dork.
As well as being a family man, he’s an all-round good guy who’s always smiling and loves his fans, who in turn love him. He frequently re-posts fan art on his Instagram profile and never misses an opportunity to thank his fans and call them his family. His humility is one of the many things that has earned him such a large and loyal fan base.
4. Ultimately, he is still one of Hollywood’s bad boys.
He may be a nice, family-loving guy, but we can’t forget that he was groomed for the bad guy roles he played. He’s best known for his role as Dominick Toretto in the Death Race series, playing the typical strong, alpha male type that everyone loves in the movies and who is gentle with his family and friends.
5. He often donates to charity.
Vin Diesel does a lot of charity work, and a few years ago he teamed up with Cody Walker and they raised over $100,000 for the late Paul Walker’s charity Reach Out WorldWide. ROWW is a disaster relief nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people around the world in the event of natural disasters.
6. He’s not just a talented actor.
Vin Diesel is not just a great actor – he was quite the versatile entertainer in his younger days. You might be surprised to know that he was a break dancer as a teenager. Yes, you read that right, but don’t take our word for it – see his moves for yourself! But his talent doesn’t stop there. The actor is also a singer, with quite a voice!
