Vin Diesel was recently being interviewed by Brazilian reporter Carol Moreira for his upcoming film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Instead of answering her questions, Diesel started showering her with compliments while the cameras rolled, saying “I can’t do this interview! Look at her! She is so f***ing beautiful sexy.”
He even left his seat towards the end of the extremely awkward interview and began slowly walking towards her in a creepy manner. Carol looked visibly uncomfortable and even looked at her off screen crew for help repeatedly. However, Diesel continued with his antics.
The 49-year-old actor also said, “Am I right or am I wrong? Someone save me. When did this turn into a beautiful world? When did this turn into the most gorgeous girl in Brazil? When did this turn into I love you?”
The 12-minute interview was interrupted by Diesel several times with similar expletive-heavy statements about Moreira’s beauty. At one point he even called her ‘baby’: “How am I supposed to do this interview? Look at this woman. She’s so beautiful. Talk to me baby.”
Moreira opened the video with a preamble in which she said that she felt uncomfortable with Diesel’s compliments. “He began to hit on me in the middle of the interview, say that I was pretty, and he interrupted the interview three times to talk about it. I was laughing, completely uncomfortable. I was not sure what to do. I just laughed because it was a very delicate situation. I did not like it. At the time I did not know how to react, but you will see that I was uncomfortable, it was not nice that he interrupted my work.”

Mas agora existe uma plataforma super legal de troca de alimentos para evitar o desperdício. Entre em farmsquare.com.br e se cadastre para saber mais! Achei a ideia tão legal! 🍎🍊❤️
In August, Diesel’s Fast & Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson slammed an anonymous actor for being unprofessional. It was rumoured that the tiff was with Diesel.
“There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew,” he said, praising the professionalism of his female co-stars in the action franchise.
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
