Maria Menounos took a moment to open up and share her feelings as the trailer dropped for the latest addition to the Fast and Furious franchise.
Fast X will be the 10th movie for the hit racing franchise, which helped launch and solidify the acting careers of several stars, including Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Tyrese.
The franchise also helped rapper Ludacris break back into acting and put Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson high on the list of household names.
At the launch event, Maria was all in and well on theme as she donned a Fast & Furious cropped T-shirt and bright red leather pants.
The event marks a major milestone for the franchise as longtime fans of the films celebrate over a decade of entertainment with some of their favorite movie characters.
In addition to her stellar outfit, Maria reflected on the time she’s spent with the cast over the years and just how much each one of them has grown through that time.

She stood with a wide-mouthed smile across her face while pointing at her Fast & Furious crop top shirt.
Going with the red print on her shirt, Maria added a pair of bold red leather pants to the ensemble giving the look a more rocker vibe.
Maria wore her hair in a half-up and half-down style that included a top knot at the crown of her head with two face-framing pieces pulled out on each side.
In her caption, Maria opened up about how far the cast has come since the initial installment of the franchise and revealed just how grateful she is for her time with the movies.
“Hosted the Fast X trailer launch last night at LA live. Been on this journey with this crew for two decades. Been on sets around the world,” she wrote. “Watched them become family on screen and off. Become parents. Grateful to be on the ride with them.”
