Vin Diesel’s partner and two kids applaud him as he receives the Hollywood Walk of Fame accolade


It takes a lot to bring a man like Vin Diesel to his knees.

But the action movie hero was clearly humbled when he was honoured with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.

And he got the seal of approval from his adorable five year-old daughter Hania Riley who gave the cameras a big thumbs up.

The 46 year-old tough guy showed a softer side as a devoted family man at the ceremony with his girlfriend, the Mexican model Paloma Jiminez, daughter and three year-old son by his side.

His parents, Delora and Irving, were also in town for their son’s big day.

Dressed in a black pinstriped suit and black open necked shirt, he put his hand on his heart as he knelt down beside his star on Hollywood Boulevard.

Vin’s was the 2,504th star to be handed out in Monday’s rite of passage that all those in the entertainment business hope one day to go through.

‘Everyone had known me just as a bouncer in New York because I wasn’t able to get any work,’ he said at the ceremony while talking about his early days in acting.

‘There was something too ambiguous about the way I look that would prevent me from ever getting a Star.

He added: ‘As my daughter says; “Dreams do come true”.’

The Fast and Furious star was awarded the accolade by Michelle Rodriguez – his co-star in the hugely successful franchise.


Paying tribute to the actor, the 35 year-old said: ‘I love Vin Diesel. On top of just being one of my best friends … this man dares to dream when people forget to dream.

‘This guy, he looks at the impossible and says, “When do we start?”

Later he was joined at the celebration by actresses Jordana Brewster and Katee Sackhoff.

Vin’s latest movie Riddick – a science fiction thriller – is out this week.

The film is part of a series that began in 2000 with Pitch Black and continued in 2004 with The Chronicles of Riddick.

The independent project has been a labour of love for the actor who personally courted financiers for investment.

He told Variety this month: ‘It puts me in a position not unlike where I started in the first place, which is the ability to will a film into existence, whether it’s a $3,000 short from a guy who’s lucky to make $100 a night bouncing or Strays, where I telemarketed for a year and a half to save $40,000.’
