Vin Diesel net worth and salary: Vin Diesel is an American actor, director, writer and producer who has a net worth of $200 million. Vin Diesel is primarily famous for having an extremely successful career in the action film drama. Vin Diesel was born July 18, 1967 in New York City, New York. He is widely known as an action star who has starred in a series of blockbusters including "xXx", "Saving Private Ryan", "The Chronicles of Riddick" and of course the "Fast and the Furious" franchise. Diesel often serves as a producer or executive producer for his films, which has allowed him to earn some seriously large paychecks during his career. He also wrote, directed and produced two movies early in his career titled "Strays" and "Multi-Facial". One of his savviest business moves to date happened when Vin agreed to make a cameo in the movie "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift". In lieu of receiving a large paycheck for his acting fee on "Tokyo", Vin convinced film studio Universal to instead give him full rights to the character Riddick. That means Vin and his production company, One Race, literally own the Riddick character which, over time, could turn out to be a very shrewd business decision. Over his career, Vin Diesel's movies have generated over $7 BILLION dollars at the worldwide box office. That makes him one of the highest grossing actors of all time. So far, his highest grossing movie is 2015's "Furious 7" which grossed $1.5 billion worldwide. Vin Diesel has been married to Paloma Jimenez since 2007.
