Vin Diesel gets emotional on ‘Fast and Furious 7′ screening
Los Angeles: Actor Vin Diesel was overwhelmed with emotion during the special screening of ‘Fast and Furious 7′ as he talked about late Paul Walker.
The actor, who welcomed his third child just days ago, was on hand to speak before a select few got a chance to see the highly anticipated film before it hits theaters on April 3, reported E! News.
“This was, as you know, this was a very, very personal and important film to us,” he told the audience while holding back tears.
“Every time when I saw the movie at the premieres, Paul Walker and I would go off to the side and he would always tell me, ‘Vin, the best one is still in the can.’ Well, I hope tonight you’d let Pablo know that this one is the best one for you guys. If you love the movie, and I hope you do and hope you will, feel free to talk about it.”
Diesel added, “This was a labor of love. It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real. When the tragedy happened I lost my best friend, I lost my brother,” the actor said.
Walker died in a fiery car crash on November 30 in 2013.
