It’s hard to believe that it has been five years since actor Paul Walker passed away and his family and friends are taking time to remember the legendary heartthrob today. Tyrese Gibson, who co-starred with him in The Fast and the Furious movies, opened up to his fans about their friendship on Instagram.
The 39-year-old wrote, “five years ago today we all woke up to a nightmare…….Believe me, it’s still very real for all of us that knew him and loved him personally…..Something that would make you smile today….His I Am Paul Walker documentary was just released today on iTunes…….Please keep praying for the WALKER family especially his daughter @meadowwalker who’s one of the strongest most resilient angels out there!!”
Tyrese shared some special pictures and moments he spent with Paul on Instagram and we’re crying over here, TBH. Unfortunately, Paul’s life was cut short at just 40 years old when he died in a tragic car accident following a charity event. This isn’t the first time that Tyrese has honored his co-star on social media, either.
On Sept. 12, the actor took to Instagram to wish Paul a happy birthday on what would have been his 45th birthday. The two were all smiles as they had chopsticks on their plates in the photo. He wrote, “Happy 45th to a man who was ALL HEART!!!!!!!! It seems like yesterday I can’t wait to see you again. I have so much to tell you, bro…….God bless all the way!!”
Paul’s family and friends opened up about the actor in the documentary, I Am Paul Walker. Tyrese, of course, had nothing but amazing things to say about him. “If you had to look up the definition of handsome, ideal white man, Paul fit every profile there is. Blonde, blue eyes, 6’3” surfer dude, muscles at all times…But as a man he wasn’t intimidating, because he was so regular.”
Ugh, we miss you Paul.
