Movie legend Paul Newman dies, 83



Hollywood legend Paul Newman has died at the age of 83, his spokeswoman has confirmed.


Marni Tomljanovic said the blue-eyed star of films like Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid died on Friday of cancer. She gave no further details.


Newman was nominated for an Oscar 10 times, winning a best actor trophy in 1987 for The Color Of Money.


In May 2007, he said he was giving up acting because he could no longer perform to the best of his ability.


"I'm not able to work anymore... at the level that I would want to," he told US broadcaster ABC.


Earlier this year, he pulled out of directing a stage production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men in Connecticut because of unspecified health problems.

Sad news....


Props to him for backing out of the game when he knew he was too old to play properly, though. He will always be remembered as he was at his peak, as it should be. Too many actors, and others in the limelight, aren't that self aware.


I loved him in The Verdict, haven't seen that in ages. I might do that tonight...
