The Fast and Furious star opened up about his relationship with Walker and how he plans to keep his memory alive.
The heartfelt tribute has since left the internet welling up with many fans rushing to share their own tributes to the actor who tragically passed away back in 2013. Check it out:
The off-screen interviewer begins: "I see you got the 'For Paul' shirt," before Diesel begins to pick up on what the next question may be.
"I love that," he replies, "keep going you're on to something."
The interviewer obliges and continues: "You got the 'For Paul' shirt on - what would he think about how you guys have carried on this legacy?"
The Hollywood A-lister takes a moment to collect himself before doing a deep breath.
He replied: "Okay, you want to go there? You want to go there?"
"Okay," the actor began, "what would he think?"
Diesel then recounted an anecdote about Walker and just how selfless and genuine he was.
He recalled: "In 2010 there was an earthquake in Haiti.
"The president of the Dominican Republic asked me to come down and asked me if I could bring any of the people from Hollywood."
