Vin Diesel and Helen Mirren Share Secrets in New ‘Fast 8’ Photo
You’ve probably heard that Vin Diesel recently became the first celebrity to reach over 100 million likes on Facebook — a level of validation that mere mortals such as you or I may never know. A lot of those likes are the result of Diesel’s commitment to his fans and to sharing photos from his new films, like the latest pic from the set of Fast 8, which features your new favorite BFF pairing: Diesel and Dame Helen Mirren.
The Instagram photo reveals Mirren in a scene with Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, and it looks like they’re enjoying the sort of secret that can only be shared between legit BFFs. What could he be telling her?
“I tell everyone my favorite Prince song is ‘Darling Nikki,’ but it’s actually ‘Batdance.’”
“The secret to great pasta sauce is a pinch of sugar.”
“My real name is Mark Sinclair.”
Mirren is a self-proclaimed car enthusiast and Vin Diesel fan who lobbied for a role in the Fast & Furious sequel. Although we don’t know much about her particular role, we do know that it is unfortunately small and — even more unfortunately — she won’t be getting in the driver’s seat. STILL. We are about to witness what might be the best Fast movie since, well, Furious 7: Charlize Theron as a villain, Game of Thrones fave Kristofer Hivju as her henchman, and Helen Friggin’ Mirren as…well, it doesn’t matter what she’s doing. We get to see Helen Mirren hanging out with Vin Diesel in a Fast & Furious movie, what else do you need?
