Vin Diesel: Paul Walker's Mom Gave Me Strength After His Death

Vin Diesel has opened up about what he went through the night that his friend and colleague Paul Walker passed away last weekend.

“When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house,” the 46-year-old Fast & Furious actor wrote on Facebook.

“I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs,” Vin added. “His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son?… She said yes, but you lost your other half…”

Earlier in the week, Vin went to the crash site for a private memorial and took a moment to speak to fans paying their respects.

    all this crappy actor does is talk about himself

  • allison

    Agree but he is not alone.

    Still can’t believe in Paul’s death… He was so young man, so positive and energetic, it’s a big tragedy that man like him passed away.
    And Van talked not about himself, he talked about Paul’s mother strength. He lost his friend and it’s normal for him to talk about it a lot.
    People writing nasty things are just hard-hearted.

    So it’s true, they were gay lovers. Hot!

  • interracial romance

    The guy who wrote dating sites are a joke is spot on. The odds of meeting someone compatable is like being struck by lightening. Oh wait, that’s not entirely true. If a man is over 6 foot tall and makes tons of money, he might have a chance. Or if a woman is insanely beautiful. But for the rest of us regular people that have to rely on personality, on line dating simply does not work.
