Vin attended Hunter College to study creative writing.
Prior to settling down with his longtime girlfriend, Paloma Jiménez, Vin has been involved with several women in his career. Some of them include Kaya Jones, Samantha Phillips, Asia Argento, Michelle Rodriguez and Maria Menounos. He has three children: Vincent Sinclair, Pauline and Hania Riley. The family presently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Vin started his acting career when he was just seven years old. He made his stage debut in a children’s play called “Dinosaur Door” in New York City’s Theater for the New City. Vin remained active in the theater throughout his youth. During his time in the theater, Vin also worked a wide variety of jobs. He served as a bouncer at New York nightclubs Tunnel and Mars; worked as a telemarketer by selling light bulbs; and performed breakdancing in an instructional video.
Vin made his motion picture debut in the 1990 film “Awakenings.” In 1994, he starred, wrote, produced and directed the short drama movie “Multi-Facial.” It was shown at the 1995 Cannes Festival. He then made the 1997 feature-length film “Strays,” which was selected for the 1997 Sundance Festival. After appearing in the 1998 Oscar-winning smash hit film “Saving Private Ryan,” Vin would go on to star in a wide array of Hollywood movies. Since 2000, he has starred in “Boiler Room,” “XXX,” “The Fast and the Furious,” “The Pacifier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Chronicles of Riddick.”
Over the last two decades, Vin has been nominated for numerous awards, such as the Screen Actors Guild Award, MTV Movie Award, People’s Choice Award and Teen Choice Award – he also been nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award for worst actor.
Outside of moviemaking, Vin is an avid player of “Dungeons and Dragons.” He also founded video game company Tigon Studios.
We estimate that Vin Diesel’s net worth is $75 million (2017).
So how much is $75 million really?
$75 million could pay for the production costs of one “Fast and the Furious” movie. $75 million can also help pay to construct a brand new theater in New York City.
