Vin Diesel, real name Marc Sinclaire, was born on 18th July 1967, in Alameda County, California. Diesel actually has a twin brother named Paul Sinclaire, sadly they’re not identical twins. They were raised by their mother and stepfather, a theatre manager and an acting instructor, in New York.
He went to high school in New York and eventually developed his love for filmmaking and writing. Soon after he completed his high school, he attended Hunter College in New York and studied screenwriting over there. However, he soon dropped out of college and decided to jump right into movies.
Post his adieu from the college and before actually working in any movies, Diesel was working as a bouncer in a nightclub in New York. On the side, he was screenwriting, auditioning for various parts and trying to land himself in a movie but nothing significant was working for him.
This was also the time when he started working on his first film, Multi-Facial, he wrote, produced, directed and even starred in this short film which made its way to the Cannes Film Festival. His next project was Strays, which also landed at the Sundance film festival but wasn’t able to make any significant contribution to Vin Diesel net worth.
However, it was these festival films that caught the attention of director Steven Spielberg who was very impressed by Diesel and even decided to write a part specially for him in Saving Private Ryan, in which he made $100,000. He then went on to act and lead in some major movies including The Iron Giant and Pitch Black.
Three years later to Saving Private Ryan, Vin Diesel was again introduced in a massive hit and this time it was Fast & Furious. Ever since then, Vin Diesel net worth is practically multiplying. He even became the top-grossing actor of 2017 and topped Forbes’s highest-grossing actors list.
He even went on to lend his voice for Guardian’s Of The Galaxy’s Groot which is another massive hit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Diesel has time and again confessed to preferring a more private life and doesn’t like to be too much in the limelight about his personal life.
Vin Diesel is currently with his partner, Mexican model Paloma Jimenez and together they have three beautiful kids. Daughter Hania Riley (Born in 2008), son Vincent Sinclair (Born in 2010) and daughter Paulina (Born in 2015).
