A decade ago, Paul Walker sat down for an interview with CosmoGIRL and revealed some pretty intimate details about his life, his need for speed, and how he wanted to live out the rest of his days.
The old interview was brought to life by OKMagazine.com’s site director, who actually interviewed Paul for Cosmo all those years ago.
Here’s some eerie bites on his thoughts on life, using a car crash as a metaphor.
“I think it’s one of those things where there’s that fine line, and you’re trying to find the balance of being in control—but you’re really not in control. The way I explain it is, you know that feeling when you’ve come close to getting in a car accident? Your heart’s pounding because you just evaded it! It’s that moment of being fearful and then realizing everything is okay, with your heart racing a mile a minute. It’s like, “I’m definitely alive now.” I love that. My motto is, ‘Go big or go home.’ I say that a lot.”
He also gave this tidbit on how he wanted to live out the rest of his life.
“As for Hollywood, I’ve got a killer job and I’m having a blast. I have the luxury to go on trips whenever I want and invite my friends who can’t afford it. And God willing, I’ll be able to do all that till the day I die.”
