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.

R.I.P.
