A confirmed Awards Daily report says that one of Hollywood’s true icons in every sense of the word who had been fighting a losing battle to cancer for a while now, Paul Newman, has finally lost the fight at the age of 83. This is the most devastating news ever, even though it has been a long time coming, it is still a huge blow for his family, friends, his enormous amount of fans and film lovers who idolise him and his unsurpassed contribution to the world of film, from his all time greats that I regard highly, “Cool Hand Luke,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” "Rachel, Rachel," "Hud," "The Verdict," "The Hustler" and even “The Sting,” and the official end of an era when Old Hollywood was at its peak.
Playlist note: His greatest role however might have been the key hand he had in making his own Paul Newman's Pineapple salsa a delicacy so delicious, no Academy Award could represent its awesomeness. We're at the store as we speak buying up as many jars of this as we can before they're all gone now that he's passed. Hello ebay.
