After the tragic death of “Fast and the Furious” actor Paul Walker in a car crash last year, Jessica Alba, who co-starred with him in 2005’s “Into the Blue,” shared some of her memories of the actor in a recent interview with British GQ.

Alba, the 32-year-old “Sin City” actress, remembered Walker as having “a real childlike innocence,” according to GQ. “He was game to try anything or do anything.”

She also recalled his down-to-earth attitude toward Hollywood.

“He treated everyone with respect and love,” she said. “He was never treating anybody differently because of who they were. He was really a guy's guy. And loved his daughter so much and talked about her all the time. He never cared about Hollywood. He never cared about the hype."

Alba, whose “Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For” comes out this August, also discussed how her character has changed since the film’s first installation, which came out nearly 10 years ago.

“There’s more of me and I do more than I did in the first one,” she said. “I have a bit more of a character arc in this one. There’s more dancing, but the dancing’s really connected to the story. Nancy’s a bit of an alcoholic and a bit of a mess and she’s depressed and angry. The dances in the movie reflects where she’s at.”
