Legendary actor, WWII veteran, and renowned philanthropist, Paul Newman, succumbed to cancer at his home on Friday. He was 83. AP reports:
A spokeswoman for screen legend Paul Newman says the actor has died at age 83. Spokeswoman Marni Tomljanovic says Newman died Friday of cancer. No other details were immediately available. Newman was nominated for Academy Awards 10 times, winning a regular Oscar in 1987 for “The Color of Money” and two honorary ones. He was equally at home in comedies such as “The Sting” and dramas such as “Hud.” He sometimes teamed with his wife, Joanne Woodward, also an Oscar winner for the 1957 film “Three Faces of Eve.”
This happened on Friday, but we can’t go without acknowledging the fact that the world just lost one of greatest actors and human beings of the last 100 years. Meanwhile, Britney Spears just lost the cap to her Mountain Dew. Screw you, Death.
