How did I miss these?
Vin Diesel is literally my idol but I never actually took the time to see what the younger version of him looks like.
In fact, I didn’t even know much about his past.
1. High Schooler with Style
It’s no secret that Diesel knows how to look good on camera but apparently, his sense of style started at a very young age.
Just look how sharp he dressed back in high school!
2. He was a good breakdancer
I had no idea that breakdancing was his thing.
He was pretty good at it too and even made a video to teach others.
Yes, he was a good kid.
3. Muscular Teenager
Looks like Diesel started pumping his muscles in his late teens and never look back.
Check out those 8 pack!
4. That’s a lot of hair
Guys, please meet Mark Sinclair (his real name) and he used to have a lot of hair.
5. He was selling toys on TV
Not many people knew that Diesel worked as a toy fair actor back in 1995.
I’m not sure if he was the right fit for the children market though.
6. That smile is much better than the earring
Not sure what happened here, but I’m not a big fan of his single earring. Thank goodness for that trademark smile though.
And I’m glad he never wore it again.
7. Forgotten Character
Honestly, I cannot remember Vin Diesel being in one of my all-time favorite movies, Saving Private Ryan.
He was still an unknown actor back then so probably had a few lines at best.
8. Losing his hair
This was the year Diesel started experiencing bald patches on top of his head so he shaved his hair even shorter.
And that’s when his stardom started to rise.
