Paul Newman

27R.I.P. Paul Newman

The world of cinema lost an icon on Friday, as 83-year-old Paul Newman passed away at his home in Westport, Connecticut.

My first introduction to Paul Newman came as a tween, after watching Reality Bites. There’s that part in it where Ethan Hawke is talking about how nobody can eat fifty eggs. I asked my dad what that meant, and he put me in the car, drove me to the video store and rented Cool Hand Luke. I loved every minute of it.

There’s a lot I could say about Mr. Newman, but CNN has put together a pretty impressive piece on his accomplishments, his character and his life. Read it here.

They don’t make ‘em like you anymore, Mr. Newman. You’ll be missed.
