In case you’ve missed it, Vin Diesel had a bit of a run in with some body shamers. A photo surfaced on the internet showing the actor with a little extra cushion in the middle. He took to his Instagram account to share a picture of his abs – and that was that. Now, he’s hitting out at them again!
In a new interview with Complex magazine, Vin Diesel talked about how the “dad bod” picture went viral. He said, “That sneaky invasion of privacy feels weird. That’s not right. How do I feel about people being so focused on that? I’m okay because I’ve had the best body in New York City for decades.”
He went on to say, “It’s like, dad bod goes viral. Like really? I get it, you know. I mean, a) I don’t have to be in front of the camera for a couple months and b) I really am a dad.”
He also said that the extra cushion might come in handy like when he played a larger role in the past. He said, “Jackie DiNorscio was a character that was dealing with obesity in some ways and the whole fun of that character was to play fat Jack and play this man.”
The point of the matter? He’s not just a handsome face and he’s more than his body (Coincidentally something that women have been saying for all of this time). He added, “I am going to be making films long after I grace the covers of Men’s Fitness.”
And there you have it!
