Vin Diesel at People’s Choice Awards 2016

LOS ANGELES — Vin Diesel’s done it again. The tough teddy bear’s managed to make folks cry during another acceptance speech. This time, mascara started flowing as Vin accepted the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Movie for “Furious 7.”

He said he’d hope to keep his feelings in check, but uh…

“I was cool while I was sitting in my seat, and then they handed me two awards. One for favorite action movie, and one for favorite film,” Diesel said. “You all thought this was your favorite film. So I think of Dom and Brian, and I start to think of Paul.”

Paul Walker was killed in a car accident in 2013 as “Furious 7” was being filmed.
