From the obituary. Especially liked this bit:

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.


It's also worth noting that Newman's Own remains one of America's finest charities. What a man.

Paul Newman was a great actor, a great movie star, and a great philanthropist. Rest in peace.
