Vin Diesel: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was Very Therapeutic After Paul Walker’s Death

Vin Diesel shows off his bulging muscles as he makes his way back to his car after doing some shopping at a eyewear store on Wednesday (May 21) in Los Angeles.

The 46-year-old actor, who voices Groot in the anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy, recently revealed that accepting the role helped him work through the pain following Paul Walker‘s unexpected death last year.

“It was very personal — it was the month after the accident happened with my brother Paul Walker and it was the first time I had worked since,” Vin expressed (via MTV News). “Although it was challenging, just to get back to work was therapeutic — especially as Groot. There was an innocence about the character that was just refreshing — and it may have been more challenging under other circumstances, but at that time, it was very therapeutic.”

    Seriously ….why do you people care about this guy shopping?
    Go outside, walk the dog or lay with your child in the sun. It might be time for humans to just go extinct. So another species can evolve.

    @ugh:

    Are you an idiot? They are not promoting anything, they are simply talking about their reality and their feelings and what has happened in their lives. I know this may be somewhat hard for you to realize but even celebrities and famous stars are REAL people with REAL feelings, and when REAL people loses someone close to them, they are going to inevitably talk about it, be asked about it, and something is gonna come up and remind them of it – it’s a fact of life
