Vin Diesel Puts “Dad Bod” Chatter to Rest With New Six-Pack Photo
Just an off day! Vin Diesel put the “dad bod” chatter to rest by sharing a new pic of his six-pack abs after photos emerged of him looking less buff than usual while hanging out in Miami.
Social media went crazy last week as fans caught sight of the Fast and the Furious star displaying a softer-looking body than usual while chilling out in just his shorts, smoking a cigarette on a hotel balcony.
But taking the criticism in great spirits, Diesel jumped onto Instagram over the weekend to prove that neither he, nor his legion of fans, had anything to worry about.
First up, the hunky 48-year-old shared a photograph of himself looking muscular in a black T-shirt and a pair of black jeans.
“It is amazing the response from the journalists who I have been talking to for the last two days in New York,” Diesel said in a photo caption following a day of press for his new movie The Last Witch Hunter. “Today one wanted to see the dad bod. Haha!” he added. “I am wondering if I should show the picture… Body-shaming is always wrong! What do you think?”
Turned out fans really, really wanted to see what was beneath the T-shirt! So, proving himself to be a great sport (and an impressively ripped one at that), Diesel lifted the top.
“The pic from yesterday…,” he captioned the photo, which he shared via Instagram on Sunday, Oct 11. “For those who wanted the show… For all the angels that love dad bod regardless…” he added.
