RIP Paul Newman


I was so depressed when I turned on the news this morning to find that one of my very favorite actors, Paul Newman, had passed away yesterday at the age of 83. Not only was Newman a wondful actor, he was a wonderful humanitarian. All profits from his food company, Newman's Own were donated to charity.

I have 2 favorite movies of Newman's. Cool Hand Luke and The Sting. I could watch them over and over again.

The world is just a little bit darker today. Paul, you are going to sorely missed.

So sad--such a talented actor. It's weird to see the Hollywood stars aging and passing--used to be I was too young to really remember/know them.

I was at the Vancouver International Film Festival when I found out about this. There was a lot of crying and discussion. He will be missed. He was one of the greats!
