Vin Diesel goes shirtless, shows off his gut on a Miami balcony: would you hit it?


No sooner did I write that I wish more actors would gain weight for roles (or in between roles), then this happens. Beer guts are the new black! First it was Matthew McConaughey (although I do believe his is just padding), now it’s Vin Diesel. Vin was photographed going shirtless on the balcony of the Shore Club hotel in Miami yesterday. Thoughts?

Honestly, it doesn’t change my view of him that much. I’m never really attracted to him, but the big gut actually makes me like him a little bit. In my mind, he’s between projects and just really, really enjoying himself. Lots of margaritas and ice cream and cake. IMDB does say that he’s in-between gigs. He recently completed Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (with Kristen Stewart!) and he’s in pre-production for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Plus… you know, guys can get in shape a lot faster than women. It’s a cruel gender difference – my guess is that Vin would probably just need a month to snap back into shape.

In other Vin news, Furious 8 is almost definitely going to happen. Vin has said some words about wanting to direct this one, but it probably won’t happen. And finally, Vin has The Last Witch Hunter coming out soon and this is the just-released trailer (it looks stupid).

    Um, I’d rather not.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah. Wow. No.

      I’ve never been into him at all though so maybe I’m not the right person to ask…

    • mimif says:

      Welp I’m sure he’s gonna feel really good about himself today when he gets online and sees this.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

      I think that’s his twin (really, he has a twin) and not Vin. He is promoting “The Last Witch Hunter” right now. Most actors don’t let themselves go until ‘after’ the promotion tour. Not to mention the fact that the guy on the balcony looks like he’s never gone to a gym before in his life and Vin is obsessive about his physical condition and appearance.

    • FLORC says:

      Never got his appeal either. Seems nice, but not attractive in that way for me. And that’s a baby belly If I’ve ever seen 1. And we know I have.

    • (Original, not CDAN) Violet says:

      Me, neither. I don’t mind a man with a bit of a belly, but he looks like he’s about to give birth. Also, cigarettes are a total turn-off.

  2. aims says:

    Nope. But I wouldn’t if he had a six pack. Not my jam.

  3. Lauren says:

    He’s carrying my baby.

  4. Joy says:

    That’s quite a bit larger than I expected. That’s…………large. But I’m sure he’ll be whipped back in shape soon.

  5. king says:

    Ah. Vin eats cake. It’s fine.

  6. lower-case deb says:

    oh he traded his six pack for a water cooler?
    it’s for a role, or no?

  7. Nev says:

    Yes. He’s still my number one. He deserves a break from the gym stuff. New dad and all.

  8. Lilacflowers says:

    Is he not wearing pants?

    No, wouldn’t hit it and I hate paunch.

    But he is Groot

  9. LCW says:

    Would that headline be written about a woman? Nope. But the answer is no, Not ever but I have to watch that film because my second favourite wildling is in it lol

    • Naya says:

      “Would that headline be written about a woman”, Yep. Not on this site which is 99% straight/bi female but on pretty much every other site on the interwebs, yes it would.

      • LCW says:

        @Naya I meant would it be written about a woman on this site.

      • Saphana says:

        why would that be written about a woman anyway? this post is just tongue in cheek and making light of the other “hot actor guy would you hit it?” posts here. no need to overthink it.

  10. meme says:

    not ever.

  11. Freebunny says:

    So, when is the baby due?

  12. GingerCrunch says:

    He looks remarkably like a Cirque du Soleil clown I saw recently. Huh.

  13. Aussie girl says:

    Wow, he’s really going for the ear clean.

  14. AntiSocialButterfly says:

    A month to snap back? Looks like he’s about eight months along. I think he needs to invest in a man-girdle.

  15. SamiHami says:

    Never in a millions years, even if her were in good shape.

  16. Linn says:

    I see I’m not the only one who was wondering when the baby is due.

  17. MexicanMonkey says:

    I never found him attractive even when he was in great shape, but this is just… No.

  18. Nonny says:

    Is he pregnant?

  19. Jonesy says:

    He’s just following the “dad bod” trend.

  20. Kaye says:

    Honestly, the gut doesn’t bother me as much as the cigarette does.

  21. mkyarwood says:

    He has a solid, cute nerd thing going. This is just DadBod, and I already hit a version of this as many times as I can when life isn’t getting in the way.

  22. CarrieUK says:

    He’s never been my thing but I do really like him, I’d happy have a few pints with the guy!

  23. Dani says:

    I still would. I find him so nice and likable.

  24. Andrea says:

    I hate to sound vain, but no. If he was chubby to begin with it’d be one thing, but his weight is misproportioned and he looks like he is pregnant.

  25. Jellybean says:

    I have no interest in body transformation as the way to win an oscar. Getting fit for an action role is one thing, but massive changes in body shape for your ‘art’ just irritates me, or rather I am irritated that it is given so much significance by the Academy. OK he doesn’t look at his best here but he is on holiday so what does it matter? I find men who spend their time perfecting their muscles and preening themselves to be much more of a turn off. Joe ‘The Unicorn’ Mangen???…. oh you know the guy from True Blood.. is the ultimate turn off for me.

  26. Saphana says:

    Its for the remake of “Junior” one of the greatest movies of our time.

  27. original kay says:

    Interesting twist, this thread is, on body shaming.

    • Mimz says:

      I know right. I actually found many comments quite offensive.

      He’s got a belly, whatever. He’s ripped 89% of the time, good for him!

    • I Choose Me says:

      Leo DiCaprio gets dragged for his shlubby physique all the time. I’m not for criticizing anybody’s body be they man or woman but at least CB posters are equal opportunity critics.

  28. Lotta says:

    I like chubby men so I might…

    But why is he wearing his underwear below his butt?

    • MediaMaven says:

      because he just got back from the breakfast buffet at Golden Corral, and it’s just more comfy that way.

  29. Nancy says:

    The pregnant man alas reveals himself. Would only hit it with a fly swatter if the situation presented itself.

  30. InvaderTak says:

    My biggest concern is that he doesn’t appear to he doesn’t appear to be wearing pants. I’ll bet that’s not the case, but it still looks funny.

  31. Darlene says:

    Honestly, if he just stood tall and sucked it in, he’d remedy 90% of his gut issue. I can go from looking – no joke – 7 months pregnant to just thick-but-flat by doing nothing but correcting my posture.

  32. wow says:

    Welp, someone must have been hitting it because he looks naked from the waist down.

    I still prefer, or rather preferred, Paul. But Vin is doable, even with a gut.

  33. Tacos and TV says:

    Oh Snap! The Vin is a growing a baby diesel in his belly. I look like this constantly so I am the last person who can judge anything!

  34. Yeah…no. It’s not like there are only two levels of fitness on the planet…Hollywood Unattainable Fit and Beer Gut. That is a SERIOUS beer gut, and with the smoking? Bleh. Job security for those of us who regularly send people to the cardiac cath lab, but why let things get this out of hand?

  35. lucy2 says:

    I’m really surprised by the change, I thought he was all about the gym.

  36. Christina says:

    … with a shovel

  37. Texasgurl says:

    I’m thinking that’s a fake belly. the belly button looks too waxy, LOL. Am I the only one that things it isnt’ real?
