Vin Diesel covers Men’s Fitness Australia July 2013. The Fast & the Furious star’s new movie “Fast & Furious 6″ continues being a big hit, he hits teh cover of this issue. He chats bout the roles he pursues along with Hollywood’s portrayal of him and other actors.
On the typecasting in Hollywood:
“Being a physical presence will rule you out of a lot of roles. I couldn’t have done ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ with that physical presence. But I like it as part of me; It’s part of what I represent, and I think if [actor] Humphrey Bogart were around today he’d be a lot bigger.”
On the pressures of being a male actor:
“Hollywood is more concerned about its male actors being in shape than its female actors.”
On working on dangerous sets:
“There were scenes that were so dangerous that if the studio knew I was doing them they’d have set down production on ‘Fast 6.’ There were days when I came home and looked at my kids and hugged them and thought, ‘Is it enough that it’s for the sake of art that I risk my life like that?’”3″Credit: Men’s Fitness Australia
