Watch Vin Diesel explode at Charlize Theron's comments that he kisses like 'a dead dish'


Vin Diesel is here to set the record straight!

The 49-year-old Fate of the Furious star appears on Tuesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he responds to his co-star Charlize Theron's comments on the show earlier this month regarding their on-screen kiss. Theron compared Diesel to a "dead fish," and said she preferred "more movement" in her men.

"I'm the crazy chick that's doing this horrible thing to him and, as he should've, his character is just standing there frozen, like a dead fish," Theron, 41, explained.

"What?! C'mon guys! Do I look like a dead fish?!" Diesel yells, jumping out of his chair after DeGeneres reads him the comments. "First of all, you don't come on Ellen with the wonderful animation of Finding Dory and compare me to a dead fish."

All joking aside, the actor talks about what makes the Fast and the Furious franchise so successful.

"People think of the explosions, the submarines and us outdoing each action set piece, but the core -- it's love," Diesel stresses. "At the core, it's all love -- that's what makes Fast and Furious what it is."

ET spoke with Diesel at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere last week, where the actor brought his two eldest kids, Hania and Vincent. Diesel was excited that this is one of the first films he's made that the youngsters are able to watch.

"The only movie that I made, except for Pacifier, which they weren't born yet," he explained. "But it's the only movie that I made that they can actually come to."
