AARON PAUL nearly didn't make it to the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie as his car broke down outside the event.
The Breaking Bad star drove a vintage 1969 Ford Torino GT to the screening of his car racing movie Need for Speed on Thursday night (06Mar14) but the vehicle began billowing smoke as it approached the iconic Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
Video footage shows Paul laughing as he realizes the engine is overheating, while his wife Lauren Parsekian, who was sitting in the passenger's seat, looks horrified.
Paul was asked about the breakdown when he finally made it to the red carpet and told reporters, "The car was about to blow up - I don't know why! That never happened during the entire (movie) shoot."
