When you’re Vin Diesel, this is how you shut down “dad bod” rumors (and shut up your critics): You take a picture of your abs, and you share it for all the world to see.
Last week, the 48-year-old actor was photographed looking a little softer than his usual action-star self on his balcony at Miami’s Shore Club hotel, reports US Weekly.
But this is Vin Diesel we’re talking about. The man, the myth, the game changer who carries movies like Chronicles of Riddick and the Fast & Furious franchise on his legendarily cannonball-sized shoulders. Sure, he might have some off days—but a dad bod? Not so much.
So Diesel, naturally, took some time out off promoting his new movie The Last Witch Hunter to respond to the criticism on his Instagram account.
“It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York. Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha,” he wrote in an Instagram caption over the weekend. “I am wondering if I should show the picture… Body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think?”
We couldn’t agree more.
