Vin Diesel Breaks Down Crying During 'Furious 7' Screening

Vin Diesel got choked up during Paul Walker Tribute at the 'Furious 7' screening saying "It's for my brother".

Vin Diesel made a surprise appearance during a recent Los Angeles screening of Furious 7, where he opened up about Paul Walker's death and it's impact on his life. From The Hollywood Reporter:
"This was a labor of love — it was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do because the relationships that you see on film are so real," said Diesel, who was unable to attend the film's premiere earlier this month at South by Southwest because his girlfriend was about to give birth. "When the tragedy happened, I lost my best friend. I lost my brother." Partway through his address to the crowd, Diesel became choked up and had to cut a sentence short. He was silent for a moment, which brought cheers of support from the audience members.
Universal releases Furious 7 on April 3. Vin Diesel's full speech can be seen in the video below. What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting.
