"People are so afraid to offend, or say something. You know, 'Maybe I won't get another job, I don't want to bad mouth this person or bad person,'" he said. "Personally, I like to be straight up. If I had some smack, or some trash to talk about someone, I'd be tempted to give it to you right  now... I don't have any, and that's the real story." 

Then, in 2000, ET was with the actor on set of The Fast and the Furious, where he starred as Brian O'Conner, one of his most and iconic roles. Back then, however, Walker confessed he wasn't nearly the driver his character turned out to be. "We went to this racing school in Vegas," he admitted. "I learned a lot. I learned just how little I knew about driving!"

Paul Walker 's ' Fast and Furious ' co- stars are taking to social media to express their continued mourning.

Eastwood considered Walker to be one of his best friends and shared a still image from their movie on Instagram, captioning it, “Miss you Paul . Vehicles pilfered 24 hours after the Fast & Furious star ’s death to be returned.

Walker was a quick learner, but sadly, it was also a high-speed crash that killed him nearly five years ago, on Nov. 30, 2013. ET spoke with the father of one just six months prior to the accident, where he said his love for cars evolved throughout his life. "I grew up hunting and fishing, and I've always been into archery. I've always been into cars, and it's like they're associated, it always comes down to, oh, those are macho, those are real guy things to do. In my family, that was just stuff we did, that's just the way it was," he explained. 

"So, you know, car racing, growing up [with] all the different car publications around the house, going to my grandfather's shop, he had his own transmission, he built his own motors and, you know, he was the first to break 160 mph back with the Ford Falcon back in the day, which was a big deal. And then he started racing Mustangs and I think it's just a part of my [DNA]," he continued, before praising Fast and the Furious as his "dream job."

I Am Paul Walker premieres Saturday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Paramount Network.
