The Rock Talks About His Bond with Fast 7 Co-Star Paul Walker

– The Rock recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about meeting Fast co-star Paul Walker when they were in their late 20s and noted that they bonded over their commitment to being great fathers to their daughters:

“It was always the number one topic we would talk about. We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawaii — but it always ultimately came back to family. And very specifically, the beautiful and important bond between a father and his daughter, and how we both realized that over the years.”

“Not surprisingly, when I got the news that he had passed away, the first words out of my mouth were, ‘He has a daughter.’ It’s very sad. We can’t help but to hope that their final time together was beautiful and strong and an amazing memory.”

    Man this is very sad, and as a father of a beautiful little girl myself what the rock said really hits home, and I too hope that Pauls last time seeing his daughter was a good and strong memory for her. RIP Paul you will be missed and if what the rock said about you and your relationship with your daughter is accurate (which I have no reason to doubt) then my heart goes out to her even more because she lost an incredible father, my prayers are with her and the entire Walker family.

    Rock was hitting his peak in wwe in his late 20s and Paul was just emerging as a new star in Hollywood, so given wwes popularity at the time id say rock met him at some Hollywood event, or perhaps Paul was a bit of a wrestling fan.

    I wonder how they met when they were that young….
