Let me just say now that this journal layout is girly as all fuck. I'll change it in a bit, I just want to get everything situated and cleared up and everything.
So, hello. My names Vin, call me that, and nothing else. I don't care what you heard in the Enquirer, Star Magazine, People, do not under any circumstances call me Mark. You do not know Mark, you do not have the privledge of calling me Mark. The name, is Vin.
I've been lined up to star in the sequel to xXx. So that takes up a lot of my 2004 year. We're working on the script to Pitch Black 2, I'm really excited about filming that. As far as I know, filming of that will be in late 2003. I am not sure yet, and besides, they always decide to change the schedules because of funding or whatever, they don't give a rats ass for the actors. They expect us to just drop whatever we are doing to attend to filming this movie. And if we have something already planned when they decide to push the movie back - if we drop one, we're in danger of getting sued. See how ridiculous it is to be an actor? Crazy. That's why I've been real careful to schedule about a month's break between each film. At least that cuts down on most of the scheduling conflicts, although I rarely get time for myself. Those months are usually used as promotional months or months where I have to attend every single fucking fundraiser in Hollywood and Los Angeles.
Sometimes, I want to give it all up.
But I've worked so hard, and I'll be damned if I won't enjoy this new fame while I have it.
Besides, I'm Vin Diesel, Mr. Tough Guy, I'm not allowed to have feelings, I'm just allowed to blow stuff up.
What a coincident with the song I'm listening to. Hmm.

|After reading your first letter |
I wouldn't say your reputation doesn't allow you to have feelings...Far from it, just so long as you don't turn into a maniac like out local celebrity round where I live....Vinny Jones..He got charged with community service, after a bout of air rage! Anyway, sorry..being a bit insensitive here...|
Just wanted to say..I think your characteristics allow you to have feelings..Sure everyone see's you as the next Van Damme, Stallone..or even Mr Terminator (I'm dylexic, so I given up on spelling his actual first name, period..it's a loss on me!). But I think it was your friend, who directed XXX and Fast and Furious who refered to you having a warm and sensitive side..as well as being Mr Tougth Guy...and he wasn't saying it like it was a bad thing either..There are so many two dimentional celebs in the circuit these days..it's nice to have someone who can have that side to himself...and still be able to kick butt when he needs to. When myself and my friends watch a movie together over a takaway..we like to see a character who has those human qualities..it makes the whole deal more real to us..better than any ol' slash and burn.
I don't know what it's like to be famous, but I know what its like to try and get somewhere, do something, be somebody...sometimes I go through the things I do in life hoping that when I die..I won't be forgotten, so that If I'm not forgotten, I will still continue to live through legacy..and memory in others..Everyone is like that..nobody wants to be forgotten.
I think you have worked very hard as well...and continue to do so, I don't know you, I wish I could. It would be nice to have a friend who I can talk about graphic art, movies, video games, cars and such with without them turning themselves off..all my friends seem to care about is cloths and boys..and these friends of mine are not teenagers..we're all in our twenties!
Like I said, I think you must work bloody hard to get where you are today. But don't let the groupies and the media get to you, otherwise you'll shut away the more human side of yourself. It's easier said than done, I know..well I don't..I haven't a clue...But if you keep that side of your personality under lock and key that'll be a huge part of you missing from your work..and people like me (No im no stalker..I'm just a big fan of yours), will notice..
It takes a lot of guts to break the tougth guy steriotype..by showing tough guys can be sensitive, but you'll be doing us a favour if you decide to stick by what you believe..don't let them walk all over you..otherwise they'll be in control..if they want you to work for them, you have to let them know what the limits are
