Vin Diesel believes Facebook should pay him for having millions of followers.

The 'Fast and Furious' actor - who has over 41 million likes on his page on the social media site - joked he should receive the money from the company because he has so many fans and he believes the key to his popularity is he takes the time to talk to his followers.

He said: ''So, when I had started my page, the only person that had a million fans was Barack Obama. Because it was first-quarter 2009, and he'd just got elected as President, because of social media.

''So, when I started talking to the fans, I became the No. 1 page in the world. Over Coca-Cola, over huge companies. And it was only because I said, 'Hi, guys, I love you.'''

The 45-year-old star insists he updates his Facebook page himself and he admits the social network giant was shocked by how many followers he has gained.

He told Entertainment Weekly: ''Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f**k I was doing, and why I had so many fans. What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years.

''My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner's in the room when I post, they'll know somebody was around me. That's kind of cool, that's how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever.''
