Spoken foreign languages:
When asked in this year’s MSN chat, if he could speak italian, Vin said: “(Italian accent) Si molto bene! Le Italiano que parle nonrepresente le Italiano que sono.” And that means: “Yes very well. The italian that I speak does not reflect the italian that I am.” (MSN live chat 2003)
Can Vin dance Salsa?
Same MSN chat, question about AMA’s dancing sequence: “I took a few classes to touch up, but I had been dancing Salsa for years before. That’s a character trait that runs in the family. My mother is a Mambo dancer, that’s what my parents do for fun. So I love dancing Salsa so it was fun to be able to incorporate it in the film. The most important thing it represented for my character was that it was something that he and his wife did, a private moment between husband and wife that is beautiful. And I think Salsa dancing unlike other dancing celebrates that bond between man and woman.” (MSN live chat 2003)
How many T-shirts Vin owns?
“Actor Vin Diesel has been very vocal about his love for the 2(X)ist v-neck t-shirt. He is quoted saying “Hands down the best t-shirt on the market.” He claims to have more than 2,000!”
What does Vin look for in a woman?
VIN: What do I look for in a woman? What does every guy look for in a woman? If I knew that, I’d be married by now. I never thought I’d be 35, just be on TV, and someone would ask me what I look for in a woman. Isn’t that fascinating? Honestly, I’ve always wanted a girl to be cool. I like strength in a woman. I like independence. I like individuality. As long as she’s a good person. (ET interview)
Can he still use his “real” name in hotel rooms?
Not anymore. “Im looking forward to picking better names. Socrates. Freud. Albert Camus-and I’ll pronounce it kay-muss,”just to throw people off. ”

Cash or credit card? AKA his most sophisticated fan is a Saudi Arabian princess
“Movie star Vin Diesel escaped an embarrassing penniless vacation when he was rescued by a rich fan. The up-and-coming actor foolishly forgot to take cash with him on a recent trip to Cuba, leaving instead with a wallet full of bank cards – useless in the communist country. Diesel says, “I didn’t think I needed cash because I thought I could go anywhere in the world and use my credit cards. So stupid. It’s amazing that you can go to another country and you are powerless. Anyway, we charge up this bill and no-one knows me and then this couple, one gentleman from Tel Aviv that was like selling arms or something and this lady that was sort of this Saudi Arabian princess, had seen me in Pitch Black the night before. His girlfriend gave us the money for everything and for our tickets home. She couldn’t believe we were down there and we had a blast and the next day she came to our rescue.
His favourite pasta is…
Food served on movie sets is one step below airline grub, so the cast members of “XXX” are thankful that Asia Argento has a leading role in the thriller. The spicy Italian actress has been cooking lunch for director Rob Cohen and stars Vin Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson. “Rob’s favorite is pasta puttanesca with eggplant,” Argento tells The Post’s V.A. Musetto from the set in Prague. “Vin is obsessed with penna alla bolognese with meat sauce. For Jackson, I cooked something more sophisticated, duck salad and tomatoes filled with seafood. I have to help the big boys keep up their strength for the long shoots.”Related Information:
