Paul Newman

I was introduced to Paul Newman in the film The Sting, but my first time I saw the young radient Paul Newman was in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  While my male and very straight film buddy gushed about how stunning he is in that film, I remained unfazed.  Then came along Cool Hand Luke, and suddenly I saw the light: Paul Newman is an absolute God.

Paul Newman wasn't only an Oscar winning actor, he was a philanthropist, pro race car driver, husband of 50 years to actress to Joanne Woodward, father & grandfather. With a legacy of unforgettable roles such as Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy behind him, Newman also earned $250 million for countless world charities. Paul Newman is an inspiration - his life was one that was truly well lived.
