There he is! Vin Diesel made his first appearance on Wednesday, Oct. 7, after shirtless photos featuring the action hunk's surprisingly softer physique created a frenzy on the Internet.

The Last Witch Hunter star, 48, was snapped this week on his hotel balcony, going shirtless in a pair of shorts and smoking a cigarette. In the images, the typically ripped actor (born Mark Sinclair) looked surprisingly different without his usual six-pack and bulging biceps.
