Former stuntwoman Cindy Leon recently came into the limelight once again due to revelations about her relationships with actors Tyrese Gibson and Paul Walker. Known for her role in 2 Fast 2 Furious as Eva Mendes’ stunt double, Leon shared her close bond with both actors during the film’s production.
Leon disclosed in a candid interview that she had brief romances with both Gibson and Walker during the time of filming. Tyrese later verified her claims, adding that he and Walker initially didn’t know they were both involved with Leon. Yet, the surprising revelation didn’t appear to cause animosity amongst the three.
A Glimpse into Cindy Leon’s Life
Leon took a step back from Hollywood after her stint in the 2003 action movie, pivoting towards a legal career. By 2015, she was working as a legal assistant and often reflected on her time in Hollywood as a contrasting phase in her life. Since then, she has kept a low profile, distancing herself from her earlier public persona.
Duration of Her Relationships with the Actors
In 2015, Leon mentioned her relationships with the actors were fleeting, lasting only a few weeks. When probed about her feelings during that time, she mentioned the unexpectedness and chemistry of the situations but also stressed that both relationships concluded amicably, without any lingering regrets.
How the Actors Discovered Their Common Connection
Leon highlighted that Tyrese approached her before Walker did. However, she didn’t disclose to either actor about the other. It wasn’t until the two actors shared a scene together that they realized their mutual connection with Leon, leading to a stronger bond between them.
Leon’s Memories of Paul Walker
Recalling her time with the late Walker, Leon described him as the perfect gentleman and shared memories of their dates at the upscale Nikki Beach Miami beach club. Discussing the tragic accident in 2013 that took Walker’s life, Leon expressed her profound sorrow, emphasizing the close bonds formed on film sets.
Insights on Tyrese Gibson
Leon portrayed Gibson as a charismatic performer. She humorously noted the unique experience of Gibson playing his music during their intimate moments, a detail she found surprisingly enticing.
Tyrese Gibson’s Acknowledgment
In an episode of The Morning Hustle, Gibson admitted to his past relationship with Leon and humorously shared how he and Walker were in the dark about dating the same person. His reference to a recent interview presumably points to Leon’s 2015 disclosure.
Paul Walker’s Silence
Walker never publicly commented on his relationship with Leon. The revelation about their past relationship emerged in 2015, two years post his unfortunate demise. Walker was in a relationship with Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell at the time of his passing.
