But the lead star of “Fast and Furious 6” surely knew how to top himself. In a short appearance at New Glorietta mall in Makati on May 16 to promote his latest flick, Vin Diesel drove the fans wild with effusive “Mahal ko kayo” and “I love Manila.” 

And then he removed his signature sleeveless top.

Diesel appeared on the show last, after co-stars Gina Carano, Michelle Rodriguez, and Luke Evans. He didn’t need any introduction, the crowd went shrieking as he approached the stage.

Watch how thrilled the crowd was at meeting Vin Diesel:

Diesel wasn’t all muscle that night, however. The action star showed his soft side when he asked the crowd to shout out to his 5-year-old daughter, whom he calls Alpha Angel.

On his count, the crowd screamed a big hello to Alpha Angel, whom Diesel said he couldn’t wait to be reunited with.

“I love you. Daddy’s almost home,” he said to his daughter via video, drawing “awws” from the hundreds of spectators.

Shifting his attention back to his fans, Diesel said he enjoyed Manila too much, he actually didn’t want to leave.

“I don’t want to leave Manila. Does anyone have a spare bedroom I can stay in?” he said, sending the audience roaring as they volunteered their place.

“I love Manila…. Mahal ko kayo,” he kept on shouting.

Diesel called the Manila leg of the “Fast and Furious 6” promo the “best premiere ever.” He expressed interest in shooting a movie in the Philippines in the future.

And the sweet end to his short appearance? Diesel removed his top and handed it to an astonished fan. The sight of a shirtless Vin Diesel was more than enough to send the crowd cheering their lungs out.
