RIP Paul Newman

A life well lived, RIP

WESTPORT, Conn.—Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as an activist, race car driver, popcorn impresario and the anti-hero of such films as "Hud," "Cool Hand Luke" and "The Color of Money," has died, a spokeswoman said Saturday. He was 83.

Newman died Friday of cancer, spokeswoman Marni Tomljanovic said. No other details were immediately available.

In May, Newman he had dropped plans to direct a fall production of "Of Mice and Men," citing unspecified health issues.

He got his start in theater and on television during the 1950s, and went on to become one of the world's most enduring and popular film stars, a legend held in awe by his peers. He was nominated for Oscars 10 times, winning one regular award and two honorary ones, and had major roles in more than 50 motion pictures, including "Exodus," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "The Verdict," "The Sting" and "Absence of Malice."

Newman worked with some of the greatest directors of the past half century, from Alfred Hitchcock and John Huston to Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese and the Coen brothers. His co-stars included Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and, most famously, Robert Redford, his sidekick in "Butch Cassidy" and "The Sting."

He sometimes teamed with his wife and fellow Oscar winner, Joanne Woodward, with whom he had one of Hollywood's rare long-term marriages. "I have steak at home, why go out for hamburger?" Newman told Playboy magazine when asked if he was tempted to stray. They wed in 1958, around the same time they both appeared in "The Long Hot Summer," and Newman directed her in several films, including "Rachel, Rachel" and "The Glass Menagerie."

I'm saddened to hear this...he seemed larger than life. A genius in his profession. I haven't seen all of his movies...in those I have, he had an amazing presence that transcended the boundaries of the television or movie screen. They say that great art and artists are timeless. Paul Newman certainly fit that category.

I can't believe he is gone Paul Newman was one of my favorite actors. My favorite movie of his was "Cool Hand Luke". Remember being forced to watch it in cj class and discovering what a great movie it really was. Like Angel said he was a genius in his profession. The entertainment world has lost one of the greatest legends to ever grace a movie screen.

R.I.P. Paul you will be missed

I am in tears.

If you want to see true hawtness in action, watch Paul Newman in "The Long Hot Summer."

Vanity Fair had a wonderful article on him a couple of months back, discussing his work for charity through his food company and his Hole In The Wall Gang camps. This is a big loss to the world. RIP, and condolences to his children and Joanne Woodward, his wife and one of the all-time GREAT actresses ever.

x infinity!!!!!!!!!

WOW... i just got home and saw this! My is truly broken and filled with sorrow.. Words can't describe what a amazing actor/activist he was. He brought so much to the world. He did live a great life but I expected many more yrs from him (like george burns).
I so admired his marriage to Joanne, so many years together in that business is surely something special. He lived his life to the fullest I think.

One of my fav movies of all time was The Sting. Redford and Him were great together!


Paul, you will be sorely missed by so many people... My thoughts and prayers are with his family...

i think this quote says it best about Paul:

Quote:
"Paul took advantage of what life offered him, and while personally reluctant to acknowledge that he was doing anything special, he forever changed the lives of many with his generosity, humor, and humanness," said Robert Forrester, vice chairman of the actor's Newman's Own Foundation. "His legacy lives on in the charities he supported and the Hole in the Wall Camps, for which he cared so much."
