Hollywood action star Vin Diesel has slammed rumours he is gay and remains defiant about keeping his personal life private. The XXX star is notoriously guarded when it comes to his romantic relationships. He explains, "I'm not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors. "I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence." Diesel claims he prefers to date in Europe, where he's not as easily recognised and thinks celebrities dating other celebrities are just asking for trouble. The actor doesn't want people going through his garbage, taking his photo at Starbucks or making his name into a "Bennifer-style" punch line saying, "It's a sucker's bet."
