Paul was pure light. I cannot believe he is gone.— Jordana Brewster (@JordanaBrewster) December 1, 2013
Dwayne Johnson sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about his co-star and friend.
"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," The Rock told the mag.
"We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawaii — 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."
