AceShowbiz - Vin Diesel gets his family's assistance in spreading an uplifting message amid the coronavirus crisis. On Saturday, March 28, the actor known for his role as Dominic Toretto in "The Fast and Furious" movie franchise uploaded a video that saw his son, Vincent Sinclair, talking about how the pandemic is bringing out people's humanity.
Kicking start the Instagram video, the "F9" star greeted fans by informing them, "My son just came out of his Mandarin class, online Mandarin class. We just wanted to give a quick shout-out and a quick message to the world." He then asked his 10-year-old boy who was standing behind him, "What do we wanna say?"
With a calm and steady voice, Vincent looked at the camera to say, "We wanna say that as many ways as the coronavirus can be hurting us, it's also helping us in more ways than it's hurting us." He added, "And way number one, it's making us feel like a global family. We're all connecting in a way."
"Reason number two, we're thinking about the things that we didn't need but now we're thinking about...we're not thinking about the coronavirus because well, we believe that we're going to be OK," Vin's second child with Paloma Jimenez continued on. "We're thinking about other things, like how we can help the world and how we can help each other."
Seemingly happy with what Vincent has pointed out, the "XXX: Return of Xander Cage" actor smiled to the camera and delivered his own closing statement as saying, "We love you all." He also captioned the post, "Our global family..." along with a hashtag #leadwithlove.
Vin's video post came just days after he opened up that acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg urged him to make a return to the director's seat. Having "Strays" and "Multi-Facial" under his directing belt, the actor voicing Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy" admitted he hasn't "directed enough."
"I haven't done it yet," he said when discussing about a planned film series about famed Carthaginian military leader Hannibal Barca. "As much as I am grateful for the accomplishments, there are moments when I go 'God, you promised the universe, very specifically, the Hannibal Barca trilogy, and you haven't delivered it. You travelled all over the world.' "
