Tributes Continue to Pour In Following Paul Walker's Tragic Death
Continuing to be remembered by his many admirers, co-workers and friends, the tributes are still in for the late "Fast and the Furious" actor Paul Walker.
After forming a bond while working together on "Fast Five," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson spoke out on Monday (December 2) during an interview with Entertainment Weekly about his beloved pal.
"When I first met Paul, I think in our late 20s, we were young kids in the business. Then years later, when I did Fast Five, we had an opportunity to spend a lot of time together and become reacquainted. At that time, we had both been in the business at that time for over a decade, and the most important thing that we had in common was the importance of family time and being a great father to our daughters. We bonded over that," Johnson said.
"It was always the number one topic we would talk about. We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawai'i — but it always ultimately came back to family. And very specifically the beautiful and important bond between a father and his daughter, and how we both realized that over the years."
He then added, "Not surprisingly, when I got the news that he had passed away, the first words out of my mouth were, "He has a daughter." It's very sad. We can't help but to hope that their final time together was beautiful and strong and an amazing memory."
Also sending out their condolences to Mr. Walker was the team at Davidoff Coolwater, a fragrance that Paul was the face of. "The Davidoff Cool Water team who has worked closely with Paul Walker, is saddened to hear the news of his sudden death,” the statement read. “As the face of Davidoff Cool Water, Paul contributed to the National Geographic “Love the Ocean” campaign, whose mission is to protect the ocean. His talent, generosity and passion for giving back was admirable. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul‘s family, friends, and fans around the world.”
