ET spoke exclusively with Hours director Eric Heisserer in which he opens up about how emotional the star of his film, Paul Walker, was while playing the role of a father struggling to save the life of his newborn daughter as well as how his own daughter Meadow inspired him.

Heisserer tells ET that Meadow visited Walker on the Hours set revealing, "It was important for him to have her close. We even talked about the fact that he had a tattoo of her name. I saw the connection he had [with her] from that and we agreed not to cover it up for the movie. He had a really special relationship with her." He goes on to say, "Paul had so much worry and fear about being a good father, and the right father, to Meadow."

Hours starring Paul Walker and Genesis Rodriguez is set to be released December 13.
