The Rock said Paul’s memory and Kevin Hart’s car accident got him thinking about the unpredictability of life.
The “Hobbs and Shaw” star posted a photo of himself and Walker on a red carpet for “Fast & Furious Five." The picture shows the two posing in sharp looking suits and flashing their million dollar smiles at the camera.
He included a caption that explained it was actually Paul’s daughter, Meadow, that sealed their friendship.
“I never post about my friend,” Johnson’s caption stated. “Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet. But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us.”
The Rock explained to his fans that on Paul’s birthday his legacy is “rightfully” celebrated around the world, and he shared the two stars' friendship started with their love for their childern.
“Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers,” the Rock said, “recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road. All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is.”
The accident he is referring to was clearly Kevin Hart’s recent car accident that forced the "Jumanji" star to get urgent back surgery.
Johnson did a huge solid for Hart by filling in for him as the first guest on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Johnson concluded his message about Paul with a Samoan phrase that means happy birthday.
“We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honor of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us.” He stated. “Manuia le aso fanau, my friend.”
Meadow Walker is now 20-years-old and recently shared a picture showing how close she is with Vin Diesel’s daughter.
