Vin Diesel is all about the hugging

Vin Diesel is more of a hugger than a fighter these days.

The 43-year-old actor has become more chilled with age.

“With age, you get to a place where you don’t want to knock people out. You just want to give people a hug,” he said.

“My mom used to say that I became a fighter and a scrapper and a tough guy to protect who I am at my core.

“This exterior means that I am actually one of the few people who can show love without coming across as soft.”
