Behind the larger-than-life image, Vin Diesel is a tender man who remembers well the last time he cried. In a discussion about his latest "Fast & Furious" film, a movie that has done remarkably well for him, Diesel opens about the franchise, his personal equation with co-stars and about his last crying experience.

According to the  Los Angeles Times, the fate of the newest installment of the Universal Pictures franchise, "The Fate of the Furious," seems brilliant. The trade pundits hold that the movie will open to a massive worldwide weekend collection that is slated to top $400 million.

Diesel does not outright deny the rumors of an on-set feud with Dwayne Johnson, his co-star.The latter after wrapping the shoot posted an expletive-filled Instagram post that was reported to be intended for Diesel. He confirms that after the post, he did try to sort things out with Johnson the very next day. The rest of the cast also downplayed the feud stating that during a shoot for "Fate of the Furious" where too many heads are involved little fights are normal and of no greater consequence.

Vin Diesel is collaborating with DJ Steve Aoki on a monster track that they had already recorded in Las Vegas. The project is a hush affair, but the "Fate of the Furious" star reveals that watching her girlfriend Paloma Jimenev listen to the track brought tears to his eyes. On a lighter note, he jokes the track might just get him his first Grammy before the Oscars. The star who has been part of many money making franchises is yet to receive Oscar recognition, according to Vulture.

When promoting "The Fate of the Furious," Diesel had hoped the movie would win the Best Picture at Oscars, sadly the dream did not come true. Here's hoping this time, by roping in talents like Charlize Theron, Oscar would not ditch Diesel the second time.
