Multiple sources are reporting the death of actor Paul Newman, 83, on Friday.
Newman was one of the best actors of his generation, and starred in two of my personal favorite movies — “The Sting” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” But that’s just the tip of the great Paul Newman movie list — “Hud,” “Cool Hand Luke,” “The Hustler.” He won an Oscar later in his career for “The Color of Money,” the sequel to “The Hustler,” in 1987.
Newman was also known for his devotion to charity — his “Newman’s Own” foods raised millions for charity — and to his wife, Joanne Woodward, who he married in 1958.
