DROPOUT VIN DIESEL FINALLY GOT HIS DEGREE

Here’s an outfit we never expected to see Vin Diesel wearing: a graduation gown. Space suits and leather jackets are usually his style. Vin was honored at Hunter College in New York with an honorary PHD, thirty years after he dropped out. Vin was the commencement speaker (he has the VOICE for it!)

He credits his college education with giving him the talent to write a script about the difficulties of being biracial in Hollywood. Steven Spielberg was impressed with his work and cast him in Saving Private Ryan – and Vin could finally quit his job as a bouncer…
