Vin Diesel was ‘not complaining’ when he kissed Charlize Theron
Vin Diesel was "definitely not complaining" when he got to kiss Charlize Theron in ‘The Fate of the Furious’.
The eighth film in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise has been described as the best movie in the series by the action man and when director F. Gary Gray told him he would be smooching stunning Charlize he was very happy, and he was even more pleased when the filmmaker made the duo re-enact the kiss over and over again.
The 49-year-old actor told USA Today: "I was definitely not complaining! Gary shot that every which way but loose. Charlize Theron is not a bad kissing partner to have. There are worse things that can happen to you!"
And Vin has jokingly boasted that Charlize, 41, enjoyed every minute of their on-screen smooch.
He added: "Do I know she enjoyed it? Oh my God yeah. A kiss cannot lie, lips don’t lie. No, they didn’t. She owned it!"
The trailer, which was released in December, featured Charlize’s character terrorist Cipher locking lips with Vin’s alter ego Dominic Toretto in front of his wife Letty.
Vin believes it was the kiss that pushed the trailer over the top and made it one of the most watched movie trailers of all time.
He said: "Since you were a kid, there is no trailer that has ever been viewed as much as the ‘Fast 8’ trailer.
"The biggest moment in that trailer is the kiss between Cipher and Dom. How did we get to a place where that is the biggest moment in trailer history? How?
"The world knows our characters. Something like that becomes the tsunami of your movie."
