That's a hot dad bod! Vin Diesel showed off his impressive abs in a new Instagram photo on Friday, February 5.
The action hero was pictured in a bathroom with a white towel slung low over his hips. "I even shower in character," he captioned the snap. "What's good … Xander."
The Furious 7 star is reprising his role as Xander Cage, a tattooed extreme sports athlete turned government agent, in the eagerly anticipated sequel to the 2002 film xXx.
And it's not the only shirtless pic Diesel, 48, shared on social media this week — he also posted a selection of photos on his Facebook page, including one on Friday that showed him suspended sideways from a pole.

The xXx: The Return of Xander Cage star hit back at critics in October after a picture surfaced of him looking not-so-buff while lounging on a hotel balcony in Miami.
"It’s like, dad bod goes viral. Like, really?" the father of three said of his softer physique. "I get it, you know? I mean, a) I don’t have to be in front of the camera for a couple months and b) I really am a dad."
A few days later, he posted a pic on Instagram that proved his six-pack was back, along with the caption "Body-shaming is always wrong!"
