Vin Diesel, 2016 People's Choice Awards

CBS

Vin Diesel is one of the buffest action stars in the industry, but as we know by now, he's really just a mushy teddy bear on the inside.

The Furious 7 actor accepted the awards for Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie tonight at the People's Choice Awards, and after thanking the studio and the fans, he couldn't help but start to get a little choked up while thinking of his late co-star Paul Walker.

"You know, as I was coming over here, I always do this, I say I'm not going to get emotional about, you know, winning these awards. And 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. You all thought that this was your favorite film," he began to tell the audience.

"So I think of Dom and Brian, and I start to think of Paul. They said to make this short and sweet so I will try to make this short and sweet."

He continued, "It was a labor of love. My only message to you is you'd be amazed what you can do with love. You'd be amazed how powerful a force that is. When we didn't want to come back to filming when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end, and now I'm standing here with all of you telling me this was your favorite film of the year."

Diesel continued to thank the fans and then closed his acceptance speech in a way we'll never forget—he sang Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again."
