Yep, that’s what it cost Vin Diesel to create a showpiece for himself. He produced and starred in the 20 minute short Multi-Facial (1994) about a mixed actor struggling to find work. The short was selected for the Cannes Film Festival and he followed up with his directorial debut in Strays three years later.

Ever wonder what it takes to bulk up like the Vin? A lot of eating and a ton of protein – 500 grams to be exact.

Vin didn’t choose the acting life – it chose him. He made his acting debut in the children’s play Dinosaur Door after he and his friends were caught breaking into the New York Theater by the theater’s artistic director, Barbara Garson. The deal was she wouldn’t call the police if they’d play a part in the play.

Speaking of Paul, Vin has two MTV Movie Awards under his belt and both are shared with Paul Walker. Their first is for Best On-Screen Duo in The Fast and the Furious in 2002, and again in 2014 for Fast & Furious 6 in 2014. We agree, there’s no better duo than these two.

Turns Out A Lot Of The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Cast Can Speak Fluent Spanish And We Are Impressed


Turns Out A Lot Of The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Cast Can Speak Fluent Spanish And We Are Impressed

FilmArtsy / YouTube

With “Avengers: Endgame” topping box office charts, you might want to see the main cast try their hand at Spanish before you hit the theaters. Thanks to every good Latin reporter, we have clips of Tom Holland to Zoe Saldana speaking our tongue the best ways they know how.

Be warned. In this interview compilation provided by YouTube channel FilmArtsy, there is little to no context. Just Spanish. Disfrute.

Zoe Saldana is the picture (and sound) of beauty como siempre.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Saldana starts off by saying, en Español, that “The last twenty years in U.S. have been very difficult, but also in Cuba…” She tells us how she loves playing such a decent, rich character who is skilled in her business.

Chris Hemsworth (a.k.a. Thor) gives us all the Spanish he knows. It’s not much and is totally random.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He starts out by saying, “Buena suerte! Which means ‘good luck’ for all you English speakers out there, which is basically me because I’m not really that versed in Spanish. Or am I? Adios, gracias! Un cafe con leche por favor. Si. Buenas noches.”

Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) play a similar game.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

“Corazon. Ay dios mio,” seems to be their response to the question of if they know Spanish. When the Latina reporter asks if that’s all the Spanish they know, they start shouting out random words. “Mas o menos. Fuego. Dulce. La película! Chocolate. Papi Chulo.”

Latino Michael Peña is known from “Ant-Man” and gives us a puro Spanglish interview.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He’s fluent in Spanish but some words escape him like “prep school” and “priests.” Honestly, this is the most authentic way we have ever heard a Latino speak Spanish as an American.

Tom Holland (Spiderman) trying to guess Spanish words is an ego-booster we all need.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

This video has already gone viral once before, but his answer is too good not to share: “Oooh. Es–cute—Ella. Es-school-ah. Can I come back to that one? I think I do know what that is.”

Apparently, Jeremy Renner used to teach Spanish in high school.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He tells the reporter that he understands what she’s saying but that he’s lost the motor skills he once had as a Spanish teacher. He then goes into teacher mode saying, “Escucha. Calmate. Chiquitica.”

Vin Diesel (Groot) is really into Nicky Jam.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

He asks the host, “Tu sabes Nicky Jam?” Immediately he gets up and starts dancing to Nicky Jam but is confused and starts calling out for the Puerto Rican singer.

“Nicky! Y que? Nicky Jam, y que? Donde está?” When the host says que “no está aquí,” Diesel laments, “Y por que?!”

The most shocking level of fluency was Gwyneth Paltrow.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

When asked what her favorite place is, she tells the reporter that she loved Liverpool when she was working there. But then she went to London and loved taking photos in front of Big Ben and had a lot of fun.

Baby Robert Downing Jr. was seen hosting a game show in Spanish?

FilmArtsy / YouTube

There is little to no context here and he did say “dee” instead of “de” so maybe this was back when they were hiring white people for Latin roles?

Tom Hiddleston takes on a classic Spanish tongue twister.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Say “¿Cómo quieres que te quiera si él que quiero que me quiera no me quiere como quiero que me quiera?” three times fast. He didn’t do so bad!

Chris Pratt is still Chris Pratt in Spanish.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

“Muy buenas directes de español. *Knock Knock Knock* Hola a mi representa mechanical shop. Especial por treinta personas. Cuatro cambio de siete por veinte dólares. Bien si?”

I’m sorry, que que?

Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie singing Feliz Navidad seems like a good time.

FilmArtsy / YouTube

Anthony Mackie gives an enviously good Mexican trill at the end. Clearly, he is more connected to the culture than people might know.

Watch the whole video for yourself.
