‘Fast & Furious’ star Vin Diesel celebrated his 55th birthday in Rome by having dinner with an unlikely guest: Helen Mirren.

The two actors were spotted at celebrity haunt Antica Pesa — which has a sister location in Brooklyn — where they were joined by one of the producers of their current movie, “Fast X.”

A spy told us exclusively: “Diesel wore a blazer, which he then removed to reveal a tank top, suitable for the searing temperatures.”

The spy said the action stalwart “sat in the restaurant garden and sipped red wine with Mirren, switching to prosecco for the birthday moment.”

We hear the stars and their party order Italian classics like cacio and pepe and smoked duck, and that “Diesel was surprised in the kitchen with his favorite cake, the Victoria sponge.”

The Roman source said: “They had an amazing time – it looks like Diesel and Mirren became good friends throughout filming. As they sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to him, he changed the lyrics to ‘Happy Birthday, dear Helen’, as his birthday is July 26.

Diesel’s birthday was Monday.

Mirren, 76, previously said she asked Diesel, 55, for a role in the film when she saw him at a party, joking that she “showed up and l shamelessly begged to put me in one of his movies.

Mirren is surely happy to finally be part of the family. She was also spotted tenderly touching Diesel’s face on set while filming their upcoming action epic.
