Paul Newman Dead

Paul Newman

Paul Newman, the blue-eyed leading man who starred in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, died Friday at 83 after a long battle with cancer.

Newman was nominated six times for an Academy Award before he took home the best-actor honour for The Color of Money (1986).

Part of a new breed of leading men who took Hollywood by storm in the late 1950s and ’60s, his striking blue eyes and blond hair made him a favourite of woman fans, but he often chose roles that were far from conventional.

He played the anti-hero — most notably, in Cool Hand Luke (1967), where he starred as a man who refuses to conform to life in a rural prison, in Butch Cassidy (1969), in which he played an outlaw, and in The Sting (1973), playing a con man.
