My deepest sympathies go out to Joanne and his family and friends. He was a true legend, in so many ways, and was a kind and gracious man. His charity work showed that.

I was just watching Torn Curtain last night on TCM, and was thinking about how young and good looking he was then. And he aged so gracefully until the end.

He was one of my favorite all time actors, and Butch Cassidy is one of my favorite movies of all time. My heart breaks at the news of his passing.

What a tremendous loss. I really teared up reading this. I'm going to be a mess when Sean Connery passes!

God bless you, Paul Newman! Thanks for a lot of great, GREAT times in front of the screen!

He brought many, many, MANY an hour of enjoyment for me and a lot of others. He lived a good life and was one of the rare celebrities that I respected for his off screen life as well as his professional life.

Mr. Newman, you will be missed. RIP. My prayers are with you and your family.
