During a press conference at Comic Con Brazil on Dec. 1st, Vin Diesel talked to Entertainment Tonight about his late friend.
“We’ve felt the loss,” Vin expressed to ET of Walker’s death. “The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that.” The action star also admitted that he teared up on the day Paul passed on Nov. 30, but he leaned on the rest of his Fast & Furious family for support. “It was a lot of tissues,” he added. “It was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here. But the irony is the whole cast reached out and his daughter, Meadow, reached out and all that stuff helps you get through it.” SO heartbreaking…
He also talked about how hard it was to be in Brazil, a place he had always travelled there with Paul in the past.
“I’d been to Brazil two times before and both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo,” he said, using the nickname he had given his friend. “Even if I talked on ET in Brazil or any talk show, any press or while we were filming in the favelas, it was Pablo and me.”
