Paul Newman - 1925-2008

Paul Newman has died at the age of 83.

Newman finished chemotherapy treatment for cancer in August and it was widely reported in the US that he had only weeks to live.

In June this year, a neighbour and business partner said the actor told him about the disease the previous year.

Re: Paul Newman - 1925-2008

NOOOOOO!

I was so hoping for a Paul Newman/Robert Redford reunion. Alas...

Rest in peace, Paul.

A rare combination. A truly great actor and a huge movie star.

Hollywood has lost one of it's brightest lights and the world has lost a true humanitatian.

May he rest in peace.

Re: Paul Newman - 1925-2008

Many have tried to copy the cool, sexy, witty charm of Paul Newman and failed. He was unique for his looks, his talent, the fact that he loved his wife, for his opinions and works on unpopular causes and for his charity.

There will never be another Paul Newman no matter how many wannabes are put up for the roll of Cool Hand. There is a reason people are called legends in their field and in life and he's an example.

Mr. Newman was the only crush I every hand on a fair-haired man. I challenge anyone to find a sexier guy in any role than his Ben Quick in The Long Hot Summer.

Hell even his later roles could make a woman's heart beat faster just by looking in the camera with those eyes and that smile that had just the right touch of smartass charm.

I remember reading his comment about his marriage "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?" and thinking that that's how I want my marriage to be or else why get married?

I respected him as an actor, as a activist and as a man of means who spread his wealth to better the lives of others. It goes without saying that I thank him for his talent and for making my heart sigh anytime he gave his legendary stare.

Sadly the likes of this type of actor and gentleman may not pass our way again.

To Joan Woodward, his daughters and grandchildren my sorrow at the loss of your husband, your best friend and your father.

Paul, you will be missed. This news will sadden my mom greatly.



I too, had hoped for one final Newman/Redford reunion. It would've been a rare gem in today's cinema.

Thank you for all the great memories.
