Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's heart "continues to break" for Paul Walker's daughter.

The 42-year-old actor was left devastated when his 'Fast & Furious' co-star passed away in a car crash in November 2013 and he is particularly sad for his friend's daughter, 16-year-old Meadow, because he knew how much Paul loved her.

Dwayne - who has 13-year-old daughter Simone, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia - said: "My heart broke for his family and it continues to break for his daughter. Paul and I talked all the time about how cool it is to be daddies to little girls. Our girls aren't so little but they'll always be little to us."

Filming stopped on 'Fast & Furious 7' following Paul's death and Dwayne thinks it was hard to know what was the "appropriate" thing to do, but he hopes the finished movie serves as a fitting tribute.

The WWE Superstar said: "It was one of the most difficult things we had all gone through. It affected the movie in that it completely shut it down, which was the right and appropriate thing to do.

"You're left with, 'What do we do next? What's the most appropriate step? What's the most respectful step?'

"We did what I feel was the best thing, which was create a little bit of space, make a little bit of time and regroup, pull our wagons back and then move forward with how we're going to make the best movie possible, with the intention of respecting Paul and his legacy."
