    I just read this and am really shocked and saddened. He was one of my favorites, and he was only 40. He did a lot of humanitarian work and was someone who had achieved success and made a lot of money but gave back to others less fortunate. It's really shocking to me because he was an experienced driver. The report states he may have been the passenger in the car.
    Clips from 2 Paul Walker films, Eight Below and Noel

    RIP Mr. Walker






    Love this clip from Noel with him as a New York cop. Such a beautiful man.

    Inside Movies 'Fast and Furious' actor Paul Walker dead after car crash
    By Marc Snetiker on Nov 30, 2013 at 10:19PM @MarcSnetiker

    Actor Paul Walker, best known for his role in the Fast and Furious franchise, died on Saturday afternoon after a car accident in Valencia, CA. He was 40 years old.
    “It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences,” a post on his official Facebook page said.
    “Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the Fast and Furious films, and to countless fans.  We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family,” a rep for Universal said in a statement:
    A spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Station confirmed to EW that deputies responded to a traffic collision in Valencia on Saturday afternoon and discovered a vehicle in open flames. The accident appeared to be a single-car collision against a fixed object near the road. The fire department extinguished the flames and located two bodies trapped inside the vehicle, both of whom were later pronounced dead.

    Just found this clip of him attending his first movie premiere for the film Pleasantville. You can see how shy and nervous he was, oh my God so cute. And he never lost that aw shucks unassuming charm.

    He wasn't that great. He left his daughter's mother high and dry plus while she was carrying his daughter he cheated on her with all of her friends.
    This is all from him by the way.
    He's done good charity work but he was not a wonderful human being. Lets be real here.

    Let's be real here. we are all human and we all have our life mistakes. I bet not many people will have his courage to admit what they have done wrong in the past and try to make a mend of it.

    He supported his daughter financially and she moved in with him in fall 2012. He also bought an engagement ring for a soldier who didn't have the money to buy it for his fiance. Paul happened to be in the store at the time. He had the sales person put it on his tab ($10,000) and he did not take credit for it, he wanted to remain anonymous.
    I'd say he was pretty great.

    I like him as an actor ever since I saw *She's all that! then the Fast and Furious! People made mistakes in life, it's his personal life and business with his ex/daughter. I guess one of his fatal *flaw was he loved fast cars! We all have our obsession I guess. Pretty Tragic accident that his friend drove, he was the passenger and killed after impact. A lot of famous guys died young! (like Heath Ledger and Corey Monteith), it makes you wonder and re-think about your own life! icon_confused.gif
