Paul Newman was a class act; smart, sexy, generous and kind. He was committed equally to justice and pranks. He was something you don’t hear mentioned often these days; a good man. —Susan Sarandon
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL NEWMAN | January 26, 1925 - September 26, 2008
“I have no natural gift to be anything - not an athlete, not an actor, not a writer, not a director, a painter of garden porches - not anything. So I’ve worked really hard, because nothing ever came easily to me.”
“Sexiness wears thin after awhile and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that is a treat.” - Joanne Woodward
ELLE Magazine: Have you ever worked with a man who has completely shamed your own abilities with women?
Liev Schrieber: Paul Newman. I worked with him on the movie Twilight (1998). When Joanne Woodward came on set, he put his arm around my shoulder and said to me, “Will you look at the ass on her?” That really struck me as an ideal relationship. I love the idea that a guy approaching 80 still loved his wife’s ass.
