Vin Diesel has recently adopted what many would consider the new hot trend: The dad bod.

But for many, the star’s recent transformation seems totally out of the norm for the Fast & Furious star that usually keeps up a hard, muscular physique.

On Tuesday afternoon, Diesel was spotted hanging out (no pun intended) on his Shore Club hotel balcony in Miami smoking a cigarette, shirtless, revealing his unusually unfit bod. The photos quickly hit the web, causing quite a discussion on social media.

Some folks suggested on Twitter that Vin is pregnant … one going as far as to say Tyler Perry was the father.

And while many dissed the actor for his apparent weight gain, others defended the star against body shaming.

Vin was in Miami with his Fast & Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson for the day before taking off for Aruba where Gibson will be showing his new film, Shame.

We want to know: Are people on social media over reacting? Is it fair to criticize a 48-year-old man for adding on a few lbs?

She’s Gotta Have It: Is Ilfenesh Hadera Spike Lee’s New Muse?

Published

We all know Spike Lee loves working with the same actors over and over again. And in some cases new up-and-comers who go on to be Hollywood A-listers. Think Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson.

Now it seems it’s Ilfenesh Hadera’s turn. The actress of Ethiopian decent has worked with Spike Lee four times: in the 2011 Mike Tyson TV movie Da Brick, in 2013’s Oldboy, in Chiraq playing Ms. McCloud and in his upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It.

Hadera told us she believes it’s because of Lee’s commitment to diversity that he tends to hire the same actors multiple times.

“If you look at his body of work you see he’s worked with Rosario over and over, [John] Turturro over and over, Mekhi Phifer over and over so he finds talent, new talent and gives them a chance and if more directors did that maybe we would be more represented in the media … God bless him for that,” she said.

Now with 30+ years and countless films under his belt, Lee is bringing his first feature, She’s Gotta Have It, back to life, in a 10-episode Netflix binge debuting Nov. 23.

Hadera, who plays Opal Gilstrap in the series, told us Lee had hinted that he would be bringing his 1986 directorial debut to Netflix and wanted her to be apart of it.

“We had worked together a lot and he had been giving me little hints that this was in the works so I was like let me go back and watch [She’s Gotta Have It] again.”

Like the original, SGHI follows Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) a twenty-something woman living in Brooklyn, New York exploring her sexual identity as she juggles a host of colorful suitors.

As for if this is Hadera’s final time working with Lee, we think not. 2017 has already been an amazing year for the 5’10 beauty with roles on the big and small screen in Baywatch, Billions and Master Of None.
