So much to tell you… so much to share… as you know, we have been filming in Scotland. We threw a party for the crew last night in appreciation for all of their hard work. It was one of those moments that so often in the past we were together smiling and getting everyone drunk, especially Justin. Haha. Who by the way would make you so proud with what he is accomplishing with this film. Nathalie was there, in her loving spirit. Oh, and John Cena was there, who you would just love. His gratitude is palpable… and knowing you, you would just want him to win. This week the studio came to meet about the next chapter, your ears were ringing again. You would have gotten a kick out of the fact that we met in a chapel. It was profound… normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change… from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to… your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day. Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday… it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.
Picture says it all. So much love for this beautiful and incredible, multicultural queen. Tonight we celebrate her 30th birthday here in London! The world is a better place because of you @nathalieemmanuel, and I am blessed to call you my sister. I will love you forever!!!
For some reason I always believed that the first place I would perform live musically would be in La Romana at the amphitheater… well a couple of weeks ago that is exactly what happened and it was such a cool and surreal experience. Remind me to tell you about it. Photo con @nickyjampr minutes after we walked off stage. Haha. All love.
One of the best things about the films that I have been blessed to be a part of are the incredible people I have met and now call friends or family. @tonyjaaofficial is someone whom I often referred to as my good luck charm because of the positive energy he brought to the filming of Furious 7. He is a real gem of a talent in the new xXx The Return of Xander, now adding a cool comedic element to his already awe inspiring acrobatics. But beyond that is his gracious heart. He is after all a real Buddhist Monk. I remember a dinner we had last year where he and my mother talked for a long time. At the end of the dinner my mother said the one place she would like to still go to is Thailand to visit Tony and the Buddhist Monks for her own spiritual growth. Haha. That’s powerful!
One more week of playing Xander… Then I will transition into a darker place. Enjoying this fun, extreme and irreverent character while it lasts, but the Dom state is pulling at me… and the next chapter in the fast saga will be a dark, a very dark road…
Always speak from the heart… That way you know it’s coming from the right place.
