Paul Newman

Paul Newman died yesterday. What a remarkable man. He earned his living through Hollywood, but didn't allow it to define him. He was generous, philanthropic, kind, talented as hell and pretty easy on the eyes (how hunky was he in Cool Hand Luke?).

I saw this at the end of the article from the Associated Press and was really touched:

He sometimes teamed with his wife and fellow Oscar winner, Joanne Woodward, with whom he had one of Hollywood's rare long-term marriages. "I have steak at home, why go out for hamburger?" Newman told Playboy magazine when asked if he was tempted to stray.

My awesome boyfriend aside, do people like this still exist?

It's so nice to honor someone from Hollywood that you can truly admire. And he sure was "easy on the eyes."

There are so few as humble, yet insanely successful/respected Hollywood people. Love Paul Newman!
