Closing Credits: Paul Newman
Hollywood actor/director Paul Newman passed away yesterday, aged 83, following a battle with cancer. The Hollywood legend, was having chemotherapy until June this year, but he refused to comment on his health.
Paul Newman was an amazing actor, who had many other passions as well. He'll be sorely missed.
Paul Newman had a 50 year movie career, and he starred in films such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. He won an Oscar for the Colour of Money in 1987, and retired from acting in 2006.
He was also a philanthropist and set up his own food range, the proceeds of which went to charity. And he also co-owned a car racing team. He was married to the actress Joanne Woodward. The news comes from Sky News.
He had been fighting a private battle against cancer recently, and passed away yesterday. Suffice to say, he was a true Hollywood legend. And is a great loss.
