I heard about his illness some weeks back. He knew he was dying. What a great run, a great actor. He’ll be missed.

Yes he was an actor and a great one. Regardless of political views I never recall his being biting and vicious in attacks like many in Hollywood and he did have a right as all to his political views. It is sad to see a legend pass. It is sad for his family. May they find comfort in the years they had and may he rest in peace.

From the wiki link: "He died on September 27 2008 for his cancer."

Odd phrasing.

Still unconfirmed at 7:06 am CST

If it’s true, goodbye to a great actor and philanthropist! :*(
How many children has he helped with his donations from his sales of salad dressing, etc.? If true, condolences to Joanne Woodward and the rest of his family and friends at their loss.

One of my all time favorite movies is “Towering Inferno”—they called Frank Sinatra “Old Blue Eyes”, but man, Paul Newman had some gorgeous blue eyes going himself! :-)

His second and third lives as business man and Race Car driver, were both equally successful if not greater than his acting career.

folks, we ALL are dying.....Paul Newman had a great life.....leaving this world is not an unexpected thing nor a tragedy...he was 83..

a tragedy is when a 28 yro dies....

Rest in peace, Butch Cassidy,......you've made many people smile.....

I was 17 years old when I watched "Cool Hand Luke". That weekend I took the bet to eat 30 hard boiled eggs in 30 minutes. In the 70's I decided whenever I needed to be cool, I WWPND.

The man lived a rich life. He left us a lifetime of outstanding work to remember him by, both on and off the screen.

I was the karaoke/dj at one of the parties of his Kid’s Camp. He was helping serve the food and cleaning the kitchen...and posing for photos with all the kids and staff. He was so nice to everyone and very generous with his time. Those special kids had a friend in Paul Newman. God Bless him.

I cared a lot less for his acting and a lot more for his driving/racing, personally.

Either way, an accomplished man. He will be sorely missed.

A posting on Wiki isn’t confirmation...no other source has this yet....I’d feel better if it was confirmed by the family or a spokesman.
