Dwayne Johnson's heart 'continues to break' for Paul Walker's daughterFeb 19, 2015 NR
Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says he still feels heartbroken over his “Fast & Furious” co-star Paul Walker's death.
The 42-year-old was left devastated when Walker passed away in a car crash in November 2013 and he is particularly sad for his friend's daughter, 16-year-old Meadow, because he knew how much he loved her.
Johnson, who has a 13-year-old daughter Simone, with his former wife Dany Garcia, said: “My heart broke for his family and it continues to break for his daughter. Paul and I talked all the time about how cool it is to be daddies to little girls. Our girls aren't so little but they'll always be little to us.”
The “Furious 7” shooting was stopped following Walker's death and Johnson thinks it was hard to know what was the “appropriate” thing to do, but he hopes the finished movie serves as a fitting tribute.
“It was one of the most difficult things we had all gone through. It affected the movie in that it completely shut it down, which was the right and appropriate thing to do,” he said.
“You're left with, 'What do we do next? What's the most appropriate step? What's the most respectful step?'
“We did what I feel was the best thing, which was create a little bit of space, make a little bit of time and regroup, pull our wagons back and then move forward with how we're going to make the best movie possible, with the intention of respecting Paul and his legacy,” he added.
