Jordana Brewster is struggling to come to terms with the passing of Paul Walker, who died after the vehicle he was traveling in crashed and burst into flames.
"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," Brewster wrote in a statement.
"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."
There has been an outpouring of support from fans all over the globe since news of his passing was posted to his social media accounts.
"It's with a heavy heart that we must confirm Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident," read a tweet posted through his verified Twitter account at 9:14 p.m. Saturday.
It also directed the star's nearly 900,000 Twitter followers to a fuller comment on his Facebook account issued to nearly six million fans.
The "Fast & Furious" star and his friend Roger Rodas were killed on Saturday when the Porsche Carrera GT they were traveling in crashed and caught fire.
The autopsy report identified Walker, 40, as the passenger, and Rodas, 38, as the driver. The report, which listed the incident as an accident, stated that Rodas died of "multiple traumatic injuries" and Walker of "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries."
A toxicology report is still pending for both men and should be completed in six to eight weeks.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department insisted that speed was a factor in the one-car crash in the community of Valencia.
