At this point why doesn''t Vin Diesel just come out?

I can see why he was afraid to come out ten years ago, but at this point the leading man roles have dried up and he's not going to have much more of a career unless he gets some attention. In this he's sort of like Ricky Martin: Ricky also had a huge career ten years ago that dried up, but when he came out he was embraced by the American gay community. Wouldn't Diesel be too if he came out?

Perhaps also he doesn't come out for non-career related reasons, the same that keep many people in the closet - concerns about family, not psychologically ready to deal with the trauma that often happens to us when our families freak out, etc.

Isn't he still making low-budget sci-fi and action films? %0D %0D If so, he's making movies that appeal to a demographic that's 100% straight male. If he was doing comedies then it wouldn't be a big deal, but his handlers are probably afraid of alienting the only audience he has left.

I read a rumor that he is only holding out for science fiction films and has turned down offers for so long now that his career is circling the drain.

I honestly don't think coming out is every gay man's shangri la.

It probably SHOULD be, and it's always talked of as such by those of us who are out, but I think many don't see it as the momentous, incredible thing which it certainly CAN be.

So, we get all these posts about why this or that person should come out now, assuming that the attraction and benefit is so great that, but for some direct reason (leading man roles in the case of Vin Diesel), ever gay man will naturally want to come out.

Again, I'd personally argue coming out vs. not coming out, but I think there's a lot of people who aren't as moved.

He's straight. Or at least definitely into women and has dated many models. I used to work in fashion, knew a few models he'd dated. my guess is that by the time Diesel learned about the rumors, he was already a superstar and saw no upside in correcting the falsehood by flaunting his lovelife...although he has answered questions about it in a very gay friendly way. If he were actually gay, he probably would have needed to pretend to be straight.

There was a really popular urban myth that he'd come out on the Tonight Show back before people could watch streaming video on the internet and checked out that it wasn't true.

Furious 7 star Vin Diesel's daddy duties have put the brakes on a planned Abu Dhabi premiere for the next installment in the popular street-racing action franchise.

Diesel and his partner, Paloma Jimenez, are expecting their third child, sources tell THR. The notoriously private actor, 47, already has daughter Hania and son Vincent, but has never publicly announced that he and Jimenez are expecting another child.

The new baby likely will arrive around the same time that Diesel’s next film, Furious 7, hits theaters April 3. But the news has forced Universal to cancel a splashy world premiere March 10 at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, one of the film’s locations, because Diesel (also a producer on the pic) is opting not to go.

“He wants to be with his family at the birth; it’s a beautiful thing,” says a source. “What human being wouldn’t?”

A rep for Diesel couldn’t be reached, but a source adds that the premiere now will be April 1 in Los Angeles. According to a studio source, Universal is “happy to premiere the film in L.A., birthplace of the franchise, where a core fan base exists.”

Diesel is known to keep details of his personal life closely guarded. He never made a formal birth announcement for either of his children. On Aug. 26, 2013, he made the only public appearance with his partner and their kids, stepping out to receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Diesel is very much the face of the Fast & Furious franchise, which centers around his character, Dominic Toretto, and Paul Walker's cop-turned-street racer Brian O'Conner. Walker's tragic death in a car crash in November 2013 delayed production on Furious 7 and pushed the release date from July 2014 to April 2015. Furious 7 also stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris.

The Fast & Furious franchise has earned a stellar $2.38 billion worldwide since launching with the first film in 2001. The most recent installment, Fast & Furious 6, earned $788.7 million worldwide.
