Celebrated actor Vin Diesel who features among the A listed stars in Hollywood said that he had to face a lot of struggle in life to reach the top. The actor said that at the start of his career he had no money to finance his creative ideas.

Vin Diesel, therefore, used his 'student credit card' to finance and invest on his first movie script.

"To write my first script, I went to an early electronics store called the Wiz that was on 14th Street in New York. They had a policy where you could return anything within 30 days, no questions asked," Diesel said in a statement.

"So I went to the Wiz and bought this $600 word processor on my student credit card. I stayed up all night, every night. And at the end of the 30 days, I returned it." He added.

Diesel continued, "Then I went out and rented a 16-mm camera on a Friday, because I didn't have to return it until Monday, so I was able to shoot for three days. Cut to my mom watching me roll an old 16 mm Steenbeck into my little room."

"I was cutting and splicing 'Multi-Facial' old-school style. This was before computers, really, it was a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful time. A lot of people say they want to be successful, to be at the top. That's not where the fun is. The fun is the journey." Diesel explained.
