Paul Walker's Father

'Fast & Furious' Was Just a Role...

My Son Was NO Street Racer

12/4/2013 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Paul Walker would NOT have been cool with Roger Rodas pushing the Porsche Carrerra GT to dangerous speeds the day they died ... that according to Paul's father.

Paul Walker Sr. says he's heard all the rumors about his son being into street racing -- but insists that's simply not true, because ... "He did not ever want to hurt anybody."

In the clip, Paul Sr. does admit his son loved going fast in cars, but only under specific conditions .. which he describes.

As for what went wrong Saturday afternoon? Paul's dad sounds as puzzled as the rest of us at this point.

Folks do realize that he wasn't driving, right? Just because he's in the car with someone who MAY have been driving faster than what was safe doesn't make Paul a street racer.

To the morons commenting how the man's in denial....it's his kid, he's gonna stand up for him against every gossip girl dumbass that makes up **** about his son. Just as ANYONE would.

There is a video where Paul admits to going 180- 185 on the free way With that being said, I dont think he would stop his buddy from pushing the car into dangerous speeds

He seemed to be a very good person with a big heart (and being GORGEOUS, didn't hurt). My condolences to his family and friends!! some of you are just idiots and hopefully something horrible doesn't happen to you or someone you love!

Just a role huh? Then why is his "dream car" a Carreras GT? Why was he friends with Roger Rodas? Why does he portray a Grand Theft Auto in the films he stars in?

Why, in the end, did he die the way he died, in a Porche Carreras GT, going 100mph?
