Diesel's Fast and Furious family also acknowledged his huge achievement.

"Congratulations Vin it seems the world is as captured by your Strength, Loyalty, Kind Heart & leadership as I am. You have good intentions in this business, & that is tough to find in Hollywood," Michelle Rodriguez wrote, along with a little video. "I'll forever treasure our friendship."
