Vin Diesel Net Worth

Vin Diesel Net Worth : $62 Million

Mark Sinclair was born on July 18th 1967. He never knew his birth father and early on took the surname “Vincent” after his step-father. He assumed the stage name “Vin Diesel” before turning eighteen during a brief stint as a bouncer.

A Native New Yorker, his entry into acting came through a fortuitous attempted prank in his childhood that led to a long involvement in theatre. He parlayed the experience there into scriptwriting and production and eventually relocated to Hollywood. He starred in two films that he wrote, one of which was received favorably at The Cannes film festival.

Early on in his career, roles were difficult to come by because his mixed ethnic origin left casting directors in a quandary over which characters he would suit best. His first major appearance on screen occurred in 1998’s “Saving Private Ryan”in which he played the role of Private Adrian Carpazo. From his trademark shaved head to his gravelly voice he bucked the trends toward stereotypically pretty faced actors and easily carved a niche for himself as the go-to action man. 

By 2001, his portrayal of Dominic Torretti in “The Fast and The Furious” had made him a household name and he would reprise that role several times as the franchise expanded. His star power was further cemented by playing the lead in the Riddick Franchise.

He negotiated the ownership of the title character “Riddick” instead of accepting money for one of his cameos, a move that paid off handsomely both in terms of finances and artistic control. In 2013 he was ranked as one of the best paid actors on the planet and boasts a slew of awards from 1997 to the present.The father of two remains unmarried and currently lives in his Los Angeles home when not on set.

Despite the uncertain future of the Fast and Furious franchise due to the unexpected death of his Co-star and friend, Paul Walker, Diesel continues to work on its 7th installment, albeit with a later release date than originally scheduled.

Aside from his acting, producing and other ventures in the industry, Diesel has added to his fortunes through endorsement deals as well as his own clothing line. Among his current projects is “Guardians of the Galaxy”, a film in which Diesel voices a sentient tree. His net worth is estimated at $62 Million.
