The most moving moment of the MTV Movie awards was when Paul’s ‘Fast & Furious’ co-star, Jordana Brewster, took the stage to pay a sweet tribute to the late actor.
At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, the show took an emotional turn when Jordana Brewster and Vin Diesel honored their friend and Fast and the Furious co-star, Paul Walker. Tears were certainly flowing as the actor’s greatest moments were replayed in a heart-wrenching tribute.
Paul Walker Honored At MTV Movie Awards
Jordana took the stage to introduce a video of Vin talking about Paul, and she teared up as she expressed how much she’ll miss Paul. “He was humble, he thought about others,” she said. “For Paul, every day was an adventure to be tackled and he wanted to make a difference in this world.”
“He was just a really good guy,” she added. “His charm, wit, spirit, and his beautiful smile will always live on because he will always be in our hearts.”
Vin also added some extremely touching words, and MTV played an emotional reel of some of Paul’s best moments in film — Fast & Furious, Varsity Blues, Pleasantville, and so much more. It was easily the most surprising part of the night, but it was also the best. Paul’s death was so shocking and tragic — we’re glad the ceremony decided to take time to honor him.
Paul Walker In ‘Fast & Furious 7’ With Help of CGI
After Walker’s sudden death, many wondered what it meant for Fast & Furious 7. The team halted production on the film immediately following his passing, but new reports say the crew has decided to use the help of CGI, body doubles, and voice overs for the scenes with Walker that hadn’t been filmed yet.
Even though Walker has passed, he’ll still be a major part of the set — and the cast has been paying tribute to him while filming. “God’s grace is all we have,” Tyrese Gibson revealed to toofab.com. “Before we start filming we are going to have a strong prayer. That will be the start — before we film anything. That’s what is needed for us to do Fast & Furious 7.”
So what did you think of the tribute, HollywoodLifers?
