Vin Diesel Emotionally Thanks Ruby Rose For Filling A Hole In His Heart After Paul Walker's Death

She's rumoured to be making an appearance in Fast And Furious 9 - and Ruby Rose and BFF Vin Diesel reunited at the eighth annual Australians in Film gala in LA.

The pair who starred in XXX: Return of Xander Cage together, larked around, with Ruby, 35, kissing Vin, 54, on the neck as they posed for pictures at the InterContinental Downtown on Wednesday. 

Ruby looked incredible wearing a black sparkly jacket and matching harem trousers as she posed with Vin, who looked smart in a tweed jacket over black trousers. 

Vin presented Ruby with the Annette Kellerman Award, named after the Australian professional swimmer, which recognises 'trailblazing women' in the US film industry. 

Ruby, who is currently starring in the hit television series Batwoman looked thrilled as she held up her gong.  

Vin and Ruby would regularly share pictures of themselves hanging out together back in 2016, when they were filming Xander Cage. 

After filming wrapped, Ruby took to social media to say how much she was missing hanging out with Vin, calling him her 'brother.'  

Vin also shared a video on his Instagram account in February, in which he introduces Ruby to his followers on her first day on set.

He said: 'So her first day of filming - the amazing Ruby Rose playing Adele. She's a monster.' 

In turn, Ruby previously revealed she grew up idolising the Fast and Furious star as a teenager in Melbourne. 

She once wrote an emotional letter about Vin on Instagram, praising his 'palpable' energy and charisma on-screen.

'Growing up I watched this man through XXX and Fast (and the Furious),' she began.

'First I imagined what it would be like to be him, As I got older I wondered how it would be to work with him,' she continued.

'He was the hero and anti hero in one. He protected people but unlike other secret agents on the screen - I related to Vin.'

'He always made me laugh, he did the best stunts and he ALWAYS got the girl,' she added, saying that he was someone she 'wanted to live like'.

'I never dreamed I'd step into a role from a movie I grew up watching, with a guy I idolised who I probably had a poster of on my wall.'
