"I'd like to be remembered as a guy who tried - who tried to be part of his times, tried to help people communicate with one another, tried to find some decency in his own life, tried to extend himself as a human being. Someone who isn't complacent, who doesn't cop out." Paul Newman
When a legendary actor passes away, a small part of Hollywood dies too. On September 27th, 2008, Paul Newman passed away at the age of 83 from cancer. Considered to be perhaps one of the greatest actor of the 20th century, Newman has acted in over 65 movies for more than 5o years. Even as he grew older, he still carried his presence with energy, charm, and confidence.

Today is certainly a sad day for Hollywood and Newman Fans alike.
