(TIW) – “The Shiny One” as he likes to be called, Vin Diesel has confirmed via his verified twitter account that he has a friend who is gay. Diesel’s representatives have stated, “We’re very excited for Vin, he’s really curious about how his new friend lives and about everything he can learn.” Diesel’s reps have been very busy this year as while on a press tour for his new movie “The Last Witch Hunter”, the star mentioned that he didn’t think Africa was a real place. The action superstar who once referred to himself as, “Everything a man could hope to be”, reportedly met his gay friend at a hair waxing place in East Hollywood. Diesel is maybe most famous for his lack of hair, both on his head and body. It is not clear how this recent development will affect the Fast & Furious franchise.
