Paul Newman Dead at 83

Paul Newman Dead at 83

Legendary actor Paul Newman passed away last night at the age of 83 at his home in Westport, Connecticut.

A former chain smoker, Newman had been diagnosed with lung cancer in June of this year and ultimately died of it.

He appeared in over 60 movies including: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting. Nominated nine times for an Oscar, he won best actor for the 1986 film, The Color of Money.

Also known as the founder of Newman’s Own food company, his daugher Nell will most likely take over. Profits and royalties from the company are donated to charity and have exceeded $220 million as of last year.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family and friends.

    Amazing actor – very sad news.


    (p.s. Jared, suggest you change the title/the post – it’s all sounding a bit unemotional ‘…Dead at 83.’)

    Wow, this is heartbreaking. I think I’ve seen every movie he’s made. I will miss him and my blessings go out to his family and friends. I believe Tom Cruise is a friend of his too.
    I’m just so happy to know he’s remained married to Joanne Woodward for more than 50 years. They are an incredible and most likely the best of the last of EXTRAORDINARY Hollywood marriages.

    It is such a shame that worthless idiots like those chicks from The Hills, Zanessa, The Jonas Brothers, Hayden Planetarium and others will have stories that will probably get far more attention on here than this story. Hollywood does not know what they lost (well the old school class does). We lost someone who truly enjoyed and celebrated their life and was a great avtor, husband and humnitarian. In his 83 years, Paul Newman accomplished an unprecedented amount of tasks, from winning an Oscar to racecar driving championships to raising millions upon millions upon millions of dollars for charity. He was a true belssing to this world. May God Offer Him A Special Place In Heaven and may well all celebrate his amazing life.
