This is enough to make you cry!
It turns out they were not exaggerating.
Over a decade ago the The Fast and the Furious star found himself shopping in a fancy jewelry store at the same time as a young couple, a veteran soldier who had just returned from Iraq and his fiancée.
What happened next will absolutely melt your heart!
"[Paul] was shopping in the store at the same time as a soldier who had just finished up his first tour of duty in Iraq. The soldier was heading overseas again and was shopping with his fiancée, looking at engagement rings. She saw something that she really, really liked, but he said, ‘Honey, I can’t afford that.' [Paul] called the manager and he said, ‘Umm, the ring that those people are looking at – put it on my tab… Soon after that, he just left.”
Paul Walker anonymously purchased a $10K wedding ring for a couple he had never even met!!
Apparently the employees of that store kept his secret for well over a decade, too, but after the actor's fatal car accident they decided it was an inspirational story worth sharing!
We agree!! We only hope all celebrities aspire to be so kind and generous!
Rest in peace, Paul — you are so sorely missed!
