Michelle took to the podium and said: “I love Vin Diesel. On top of just being one of my best friends… this man dares to dream when people forget to dream. This guy, he looks at the impossible and says, ‘When do we start?'”

Everyone had known me just as a bouncer in New York because I wasn’t able to get any work. There was something too ambiguous about the way I look that would prevent me from ever getting a star.”
