Were you at all intimidated by the challenge of doing a movie in which, for long periods, you’re the only person the audience sees or hears?

Well, I read [the script], and it felt very truthful, very pure to me. And I liked the idea of just telling the truth. But it was intimidating, because I knew that it was completely on me. Because the story itself, it was there. And now it’s my responsibility to show up and deliver every moment of it. I mean, I felt it when I read it. But does that mean that I can actually do it? I’d never really taken on a challenge like that before.

    And really people respect the dead. Before Paul was ever an actor his first love was cars. Respect the fact that he went doing something he loved with his friend and from what i hear co-owner of Paul's Race Team. It was a blowout at high speed. That is all it was. He time was up and the lord called him. Can't respect anyone who talks about a person who just lost his life. Show some respect for this family and loved ones and cut the gossip

    If they were driving "ridicuosuly reckless" I'm sure that tiny tree (although I keep hearing it was a post or something, I keep getting conflicting information) either way, would have been leveled along with the car....just doesn't add up in my opinion :/

    Ya you don't know cars to well. The Porshe is not a heavy built car at all. The car going that fast should actually been worse then what actually happened. Hear a blowout was the cause. Going 130 (rumored) and a blowout veered them off the road and then it came in contact with the tree. Even when i hit a tree with my 1991 GMC full size K1500 with a grill guard, well lets just say the tree even won that battle granted i was going above 100 mph or anything but trees are pretty solid. Unless it was a coconut tree or something the roots make them pretty sturdy. A car is never going to knock over a tree

    It wasn't an "auto mishap." He and his colleague were driving recklessly, dangerously and in the fashion that inspired young people around the world to be just as foolish with their lives. This is not a tragedy -- it was a completely avoidable, completely unnecessary car wreck that claimed two lives, and that was caused by human beings who should have known better. He could have prevented it by not glorifying the very behavior that led to his death. I'm very sorry he died. How many other people have died by trying to replicate what they saw in the "Fast and the Furious" films. I pray (literally) that he rests in peace … along with the tens of thousands of people who die in car accidents every year. But Hollywood's determination to play this up as some sort of awful tragedy is really a slap in the face to others who have lost people who died in car accidents. That his was entirely, completely, UTTERLY preventable is just a horrifying reality.

    John- you seem to be operating with information that could not even be known right now until every aspect of the investigation in this matter has been completed and examined completely. Somehow within two days of this tragedy, and that's what it's called when there is a death- regardless of the circumstances, and there were two here, you have some amazing insight which allows you to say (but with different words) that both occupants of the car were driving it simultaneously and that there could not possibly have been ANY external influence contributing to this accident (yeah, I said it). Your insensitive, petulant rant was disgusting and I hope neither of the victims' family or friends ever become aware of it. The manner in which these individuals died, which you are apparently so familiar with, does not happen to overshadow the fact that they are dead.

    The next time you're (literally) praying -thanks for emphasizing it like that to assert your imagined superiority- why don't you wish for some compassion and common sense?

    Your birth was entirely preventable, but shit happens.

  • Carrie | December 2, 2013 1:50 PM

    You cannot claim the he was driving recklessly. Only one person was behind the wheel, and it wasn't Paul Walker.

  • Jim | December 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    What a dick you are, John.

  • Lou | December 2, 2013 6:50 AM

    Get outta here with that shit, John.

  • Donna | December 1, 2013 6:26 PMReply
