Dwayne Johnson opens up about the death of Paul Walker in the newest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor was driving with his girlfriend Lauren Hashian when news broke about his Fast & Furious 6 costar’s fatal car accident.

“She immediately turned very quiet and was looking at me, studying, wondering if I knew,” remembers Johnson.

He recalls, “I pulled over and looked at my messages and had a moment where I just caught my breath. We said a prayer right then to give his daughter strength — because we had talked about our daughters. That’s what we would talk about. Both of us were divorced, and we talked about the power of being a dad and the strong connection of a dad and his girl.”

“Then once we got home, we started bawling,” says the action star.

Johnson says of Walker, “He was a beautiful man, and in that crazy world, that’s really something.”
