Dwayne Johnson: Paul Walker Was Beautiful Man
'The Rock' pays tribute to late Fast & Furious co-star...
The wrestler-turned-actor spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the moment he learned the devastating news that his Fast & Furious co-star had been killed in a car crash - while himself driving with his girlfriend.
He said: "I was driving with Lauren when she immediately turned very quiet and was looking at me, studying, wondering if I knew.
"I pulled over and looked at my messages and had a moment where I just caught my breath. We said a prayer right then to give his daughter strength - because we had talked about our daughters.
"That's what we would talk about. Both of us were divorced, and we talked about the power of being a dad and the strong connection of a dad and his girl. Then once we got home, we started bawling."
And he added: "He was a beautiful man, and in that crazy world, that's really something."
We recently reported that Paul's brother Cody Walker is set to join the cast of the Fast & Furious movies.
