Diaz decided he wanted to act when he lip-synced to the Beastie Boys at a high school talent show.
Diaz is openly gay, though he hid his sexuality when he grew up in the rough Washington Heights, NY streets.
"That facade of being somebody I’m really not just to protect myself definitely helped with acting." Diaz on hiding his sexuality growing up in an interview with OUT Magazine.
"It was just so much fun, and all these guest stars, like Willie Nelson, Janeane Garofalo, and Snoop. It was amazing. Smoked a lot of weed doing that movie." About the film "Half Baked" in an A.V. Club interview.
