The "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker would have turned 46 today. His life tragically ended in 2013 after a car crash. On the anniversary of the tragedy, Dwayne "The Rock" Jhonson took to Instagram to pay tribute to his late friend.

Johnson wrote in his post that he preferred to keep his personal life to himself, but he was making an exception because of a recent scare regarding Kevin Hart's car crash.

"I never post about my friend. Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet," he wrote. "But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us," the star wrote on his post.

VIN DIESEL ALSO SHARES SWEET MESSAGE

Walker's co-star, Vin Diesel, also paid his tribute to his dear friend. Diesel and Walkers were as close as brothers. Diesel took to Instagram and started his message with, "Normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha."

"Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change… from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud."

Diesel and Walker spend a lot of time on the "Fast and Furious" series, and Walkers absence has hit the cast and the franchise hard.

"Happy birthday... it's amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place," Diesel concluded his message.
