    Paul Walker Shares Life Lesson He Learned While Shooting Into the Blue: "Go With the Flow"

    Paul Walker, Into The Blue Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Columbia Pictures

    It's no secret that Paul Walker made the most of every moment. While promoting the diver flick Into the Blue in 2005, the movie star shared his life philosophy with E! News. "By nature, I go with the flow. I just kind of let things roll," said the star, who would lose his life just eight years later in a tragic car accident. "Things happen when they're supposed to."

    "Sometimes I'll get down on myself and be like, 'You know what? Maybe if you were a little more aggressive and tried to make things happen, a lot more would probably come around,'" he continued. "So I chase that angle, and sure enough, nothing happens. Five years later, it falls in my lap. So I'm like, 'Man, I'm just gonna be the way I am.'"

    It's sound advice from a star whose famous friends would later describe him as "sweet and simple," "really nice" and "a beautiful light in the world."

    Walker died at age 40 on Nov. 30. The Skulls star is survived by daughter Meadow, 15.
