Vin Diesel broke down in front of Paul Walker’s mother. The Chronicles of Riddick star felt deep depression following the horrible death of his close pal Walker. He broke down right in front of his Fats & Furious co-star’s grieving family. Walker and his friend Roger Rodas were both killed when a car driven by Rodas slammed into a pole killing them both.
In an emotional Facebook post, Diesel reveals he flew to California to visit Walker’s family to offer his support as soon as he heard about the tragedy, but he ended up being comforted by Walker’s mother.
“When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house…I thought they needed my strength, but realized (sic) when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs. 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…”
