When I first saw him in Varsity Blues, I was all like, “That is the hottest dude ever. I’m in love.” And I was so sure he was going to be this huge star, but then his career just kind of fizzled, and then he made Eight Below, which was like the career equivalent of jumping the shark. And he totally didn’t live up to his hotness potential, either. I call it Ryder Strong Syndrome.
I’m really glad I fell out of love with him awhile back, because otherwise the news that he’s engaged to a 19-year-old college student would have hit me really hard. Even better: he’s been dating her since she was 16. And he’s 35!
Woah, so he was sleeping with a 16-year-old when he was 32?
That is very ewww-tastic. Especially for someone like Paul Walker, who could score pretty much any pussy he wanted. Adult pussy. I don’t get it.
Anyway, Paul popped the question to Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell over the holidays.
What do you guys think? Is a 30-something getting married to a teenager ever going to work? I just think of the person I was at 19, and it’s so remarkably different from the person I am today, and the things I want now are light years away from the things I wanted at 19. Maybe Paul’s sure he knows what he wants, but this girl can’t possibly be!
