Vin Diesel photograph by Norman Jean Roy July 15, 2002 Los Angeles
" Vin didn't want to take his shirt off," says Roy of the action figure. "I should say, Vin's publicist didn't want him to take his shirt off." The photog still got under Vin's skin. "I wanted something introspective," says Roy. So he got the XXX star, with his sister and manager, in the Rudolph Valentino Room of L.A.'s seedy Alexandria Hotel. Where the silent-film sex symbol no doubt saw his own share of the action.
