Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has spoken out for the first time about the death of his Fast & Furious 7 co-star Paul Walker who died on November 30, 2013 in a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California.
Johnson reflected candidly about the moment he learned of Walker's tragic death in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"I was driving with [my girlfriend] Lauren when she immediately turned very quiet and was looking at me, studying, wondering if I knew," Johnson said.
"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."
Johnson said of Walker: "He was a beautiful man, and in that crazy world, that's really something."
Johnson appeared alongside Walker in Fast 5 and Fast & Furious 6, and was shooting Fast & Furious 7 before the star passed away.
