Paul Newman, classic actor and philanthropist, dies at 83

“His death was as private and discreet as the way he had lived his life, a humble artist who never thought of himself as ‘big’, surrounded by his beloved family and the close circle of friends.” Paul Newman was one of my favorite actors ever and his characters have always been complex. Even in the goofy but hilarious “Slap Shot”, his character balances the line of joker and troubled soul. Newman was always able to do this in a way few ever have or ever will. He was known as a private but great guy, was presently in a 50+ year marriage and his charity, Newman’s Own (view website), has donated over 250 MILLION DOLLARS to charity. Maybe this is why people around him say he had made his peace with his pending death, because he had lived such a wonderful life. I went out and rented “Slap Shot” last night in his memory and below I’ve listed some of my favorite Newman movies. 1. The Hustler2. Cool Hand Luke3. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid4. The Sting5. Slap Shot6. The Verdict7. The Color of Money View his full career list...
