Paul Newman, RIP

September 28, 2008 at 12:27 pm 1 comment

What a crappy week! Two celeb RIP’s in a row, and they were actually talented, noteworthy, important celebs, not like those reality-TV stars I am constantly seeing on the subway. The world lost Paul Newman yesterday, at 83 years old, to lung cancer. Damn you, cancer! When will you be satisfied!?


But in all seriousness, this is truly sad. Paul Newman was a real, old-Hollywood star, not to mention a really good, decent, generous human being. Lots of people may not even know him from his screen roles, and identify him primarily as the founder and icon of the “Newman’s Own” line  of products, consisting of salad dressing, microwave popcorn, and many other delicious products with natural and organic ingredients, which have generated millions of dollars that were donated to charities. Paul Newman made the world a better place, and I’m sorry he had to go. I only wish more of today’s celebrities would follow his lead.

    Paul Newman is a legend for his work in movies, and he’s a stud for all his work outside of movies
