Posted Friday December 6, 2013 5:38 PM GMT

Taking time to say a few words about the death of his friend, Gerard Butler talked about his friendship with Paul Walker, and telling stories of how they first met.

Co-starring alongside Walker in the 2003 film adaptation of Michael Crichton's "Timeline," the 44-year-old Scotsman said that this weekend's fatal car crash "just broke my heart." He stated that Paul was "one of the nicest people I've met."

In happier news, Gerard awaits the release of his brand new Dreamworks production, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," which hits theaters on June 13th, 2014.

According to a lengthy synopsis of the animated flick, "It's been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races, the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting un-mapped territories and exploring new worlds. Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons."
