During an interview for his new film, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, the Hollywood star got obsessed with Brazilian journalist Carol Moreira. He began commenting on her appearance and ended harassing her.
After answering a handful of Moreira’s questions about his career, Diesel interrupted the reporter to tell her, repeatedly, how beautiful she was. Turning to look at crew members off-camera, the actor pointed at Moreira and praised her looks.
“God you’re so beautiful,” Diesel said. “She’s so beautiful, am I right or wrong? How am I supposed to do this interview? Look at this woman.” At the end of the interview, the actor crawled over to Moreira on his knees, begging someone to “save” him.
Moreira smiled nervously and tried to laugh off his comments. However, in a video of the interview she later uploaded to YouTube the reporter said she felt “completely uncomfortable” and “didn’t like” Diesel’s behavior.
“I wasn’t sure what to do,” Moreira said. “I just laughed because it was a very delicate situation. I didn’t like it. You will see that I was uncomfortable, it wasn’t nice and that he interrupted my work.”
