Vin Diesel has been made the butt of slight jokes by fans, since his picture in which he seemed to have put on some weight appeared on the web. All this time. he only felt his privacy has been invaded and it somehow agonized him. The “Last Witch Hunter” actor also didn’t understand why fans would want to shame him for his body if it turns flabby.

Diesel, 48 who has been shamed for his “dad bod” has recently given a thought provoking interview to Complex Magazine. In the interview, he said, “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.”

The “Fast and Furious” actor was clicked in Miami unaware while he was standing on his balcony shirtless. Diesel is unable to understand why his abs would generate so much interest among people.


“It’s like, dad bod goes viral. Like really?” Diesel said. He continued to say that if he was not going for shoots for few months, he would actually get a body that is stereotypically associated with dads.

Diesel, who is father to three children said that having a “dad bod” is many a time useful especially when he has to play larger roles.

He also mentioned his 2006’s film “Jackie DiNorscio”, in which he played the role of a character who had to deal with obesity and that he had a lot of fun playing the character. So fans, whether you see Vin Diesel having a “dad bod” or a well-toned body, you would see him in films for sure.

He also said, “I am going to be making films long after I grace the covers of Men’s Fitness.” The actor was looking suave in the interview. He flaunted a “Last Witch Hunter” tee and his biceps looked amazing too.
