Vin Diesel, the guy who immediately makes you ask yourself, “how is this dude still making movies?”, might not be the most talented actor in Hollywood, but what he lacks in talent, he makes up for in grade-A creepiness.
In an interview for his upcoming film “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” Diesel savagely flirted with Brazilian interviewer Carol Moreira and turned the awkwardness level up to a billion with his strange outbursts.
“God you’re so beautiful,” Diesel says at one point, interrupting himself while explaining how Tom Hanks acted as a mentor to him. “Guys, she’s so beautiful! Am I right or wrong? Look at her! How am I supposed to do this interview? Look at this woman!”
And after Moreira asked him a question about his love of “Dungeons and Dragons,” Diesel was right back at it with his lameass pickup lines.
Was Vin drunk for this interview? Who knows, but whatever the case, he definitely made Moreira uncomfortable, as she revealed in Portuguese in a snippet before the interview.
He began to hit on me in the middle of the interview, say that I was pretty, and he interrupted the interview three times to talk about it. I was laughing, completely uncomfortable. I was not sure what to do. I just laughed because it was a very delicate situation. I did not like it. At the time I did not know how to react, but you will see that I was uncomfortable, it was not nice that he interrupted my work.
We know he’s been (presumably) out of the game for a while now, having dated model Paloma Jiménez since 2007, but come on Vin, be better.
