Yes, it's true. Vin Diesel has a twin! But not many had ever actually seen him so he sort of became like this mythical creature — until now.
During a Faceook livestream earlier this week, Diesel was trying to dispel rumors of a photo that had gone viral showing his supposed twin. The pic had the rumor mill going crazy, with everyone believing that really was the actor's brother. “Sometimes you have to help out the press because they can be so off,” he said.
“You all know what my twin brother looks like… so the whole press trying to have fun, ’We found Vin Diesel’s secret twin brother’ — they’re so off, and it’s so unfair to this guy," Diesel said showing the viral pic. "I’ve never met that guy in my life. Stop torturing him. He’s not my twin brother.”
The Fast & Furious star then directed fans to a photo from March 2014 of his actual fraternal twin, Paul Vincent, alongside the late Paul Walker. "The Two Pauls," he titled the pic on Facebook.
"Pablo and my mother would have deep conversations... she claimed, that it was no accident that this on-screen duo has come to define brotherhood in Our millennium," Diesel began his post. "You see... the other guy in the photo is also named Paul... and although they look more alike, he is actually my twin brother."
"P.s. Grateful to have Our page as a sanctuary, it has helped in these past few months more than you know... and God knows we will need all of you to complete this intense experience called SEVEN," he continued. "Though this may be one of the hardest things I have had to do in my career, I can't help but to think... that it will also be the most significant."
