Don’t know who the biological father is

Vin Diesel grew up without knowing his biological father, and his mother did not tell much about this father. Only know that he left when he heard that his mother was pregnant and has not returned since.
At that time, Vin Diesel’s mother wanted to have an abortion, but she felt the life of the little creatures in her belly, so she kept the two brothers.
Fortunately, Vin Diesel’s stepfather is a kind man. He worked hard to support his family and made no distinction between stepchildren and biological children. Without him, Vin’s mother could not raise her two sons alone.
Vin Diesel’s wife, children and parents congratulated him on being inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Until now, Vin Diesel has always considered him as his biological father, even taking his surname as his stage name (Vin in Vincent).
Being shunned by friends because of his strange appearance
Vin Diesel’s mother is of Scottish, English and German descent. In an interview, the actor revealed that his biological father is also a hybrid. Vin humorously talked about his blood: “I don’t know how much blood I carry in me, I just know I’m a colorful person” .
As a child, Vin Diesel was often teased by his friends because of his strange appearance.
Unlike his twin brother, Vin Diesel has the skin of a white man, the facial features of a black man, the voice of an African descent, and the characteristic curly hair of a South American.
Just that much is enough to make Vin the object of teasing at school. The boy Vin was shunned and ostracized by his friends at that time because he did not know what bloodline he had and his appearance was different from others.
Vin Diesel had a hard time going to school. He was bullied by his friends as usual and couldn’t fight back.

After cutting his hair, the actor’s appearance improved a lot. Later, he decided to shave all his hair so that the bald head became Vin Diesel’s own brand.
Life is full after constant efforts
Charming with art from the age of 7 at a theater, but success did not smile early on Vin Diesel. At the age of 17, with a muscular physique, he was accepted to work as a security guard for the Tunnel nightclub in New York.
It was also during this time that he took the stage name Vin Diesel, meaning that he could work as hard as a diesel engine.
With an appearance born for action roles, Vin Diesel started his acting career in the movie Awakenings (1990) but failed. In 1994, he produced his own film called Multi-Facial .
