In a statement released on Monday and posted on EW, Brewster talks about her loss with heartfelt words:
“Paul was an enormous presence in my life for the past fourteen years. While many would be satisfied with material success it made Paul more convinced of the need to help others. He never spoke of his immense generosity or philanthropic endeavors unless I prodded, however. This is what made Paul, Paul.
“He lived with integrity, humanity and humility and seemed most happy when talking about his daughter, Meadow. I don’t know anyone who lived each moment more fully and loved life more than Paul; making his loss all the more heartbreaking.”
Jordana Brewster posted a message to her Twitter on Sunday, after finding out about the tragic accident that killed Paul Walker.
Paul was pure light. I cannot believe he is gone.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had similar sentiments about his co-star of many years:
“That was one of the interesting things about Paul: his reservations about being in the spotlight and being a star, whatever the definition of that may be.”
“He was motivated by work that allowed him to take care of his family, number one, and that also allowed him the power and the leverage to help people in need and in crisis.”
Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty in Fast And Furious and was killed in the film, after a mistake Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) makes, but returned for the sixth installment last year, honored her co-star on Twitter as well:
I’m gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to.
