Jordana Brewster Feels Blessed To Have Known Paul Walker
On people fawning over her looks: “I used to take it so seriously in my early 20s. I was like, ‘I don’t want to be objectified blah blah blah’…But then I realized, Wow, this is super fleeting…It allowed me to not take everything as seriously and kind of enjoy everything more. So that’s been really, really great for me.”
On her friend, on-set confidant and co-star, the late Paul Walker: “Recently someone asked me something about Paul on the red carpet, and I so badly wanted to say that I can’t express what he meant to me or what the impact of him being gone has had on my life in one quote, because I loved Paul so much. What Paul had was the gift of being really present to everyone around him. It’s something I’ve worked really hard on. I think all of us try so hard and it’s difficult to have innately…He didn’t want the drama. He didn’t get wrapped up in the stuff that so many people in the industry do…So I was just blessed to know him at all.”
On how being a mom to 2-year-old son Julien has changed her: “Just becoming a mom, I’ve done two things I swore I would never do…[leaving West Hollywood for a family friendly Oceanside community] I’m trying to figure out [what preschool] I want him to go and what would be the best fit. I thought I would be so mellow about this stuff, but I’m really not.”
