Vin Diesel, best known for his recurring role in the Fast and Furious movie franchise is closely guarded about his private life. But what religion does the star follow?
Vin Diesel has not publicly stated that he follows a particular religion. It is thought that astrology and some form of spirituality may have impacted his life due to the fact his mother, Dolora Vincent is an astrologer.
Read more below about Diesel’s career and whether astrology has played a role in his life.
Vin Diesel, real name Mark Sinclair Vincent, is best known for his role as Dominic Toretto in the movie franchise Fast & Furious as well as many other leading Hollywood roles.
Diesel was raised in New York City, along with his fraternal twin brother, Paul Vincent by mother, Delora Vincent and Stepfather, Irving H. Vincent.
Although not much is stated about Diesel’s religious beliefs, the notoriously private actor was raised by an astrologer mother who no doubt had some influence in his spirituality.
Fiercely private, Diesel once stated: “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.”

Due to the gravel voiced actor’s private nature, we’ll dive deeper into the spiritual practice of astrology that could have influenced his life.
Astrology is the study of the position of the planets and their correlation with events on earth. It is believed by astrologists that a person’s character is directly related to the position of the sun, moon and planets at the time of a person’s birth.
Allocated star or sun signs at birth, each one of us falls under one of 12 astrological signs that have been determined by the sun’s position at the time of birth.
Born on July 18th, Diesel falls under the star sign, Cancer. According to astrology-zodiac-signs.com the personality traits of a Cancer are; loyalty, tenacious, highly imaginative and emotional.
Certainly tenacity can be attributed to Diesel’s success. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he stated: “I’ve always been certain that I was going to be a movie star. Even as a kid I knew it.”
Cancer signs also show a strong aversion to criticism of their mothers, which would lead one to believe that Diesel would have been fully supportive of his mom’s career in astrology.
Life After Death
The Californian born actor has continuously shown his emotional and loyal qualities, both linked with the Cancer sign. The death of co-star, Paul Walker in 2013 left the star devastated. He continues to support and guide his Goddaughter; Walker’s daughter, Meadow.
The death of Walker in a car accident in 2013 understandably rocked the world of Diesel who referred to the actor as his ‘brother’.
In a Facebook post shortly after Walker’s death, Diesel wrote: “Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now…and the profound impact your full life has had on it, on us…on me…I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were…on and off screen.”
Walker’s character in the Fast & Furious franchise was, of course, named Brian.
Diesel has shown compassion and loyalty to Walker’s daughter, Meadow since the death of her father and she regularly spends time with his own children.
The loss of a loved one can sometimes bring forward a spirituality that once lay dormant and Diesel’s heartfelt messages to Walker after his death suggest that the star hopes his friend is able to hear him, although he is not here in the physical world.
