Although, he was 83 years old and denying that he had cancer, the news that Paul Newman passed away still makes us sad.
Surrounded by his family and close friends at his farmhouse near Westport, Conn., Newman succumbed Friday after a long battle with cancer, according to a statement from publicist Jeff Sanderson.
Famed for his intense blue eyes, his love of car racing and one of the coolest demeanors ever to heat up the silver screen, Newman was nominated for Oscars ten times, winning one for The Color of Money in 1987.
But perhaps his proudest accomplishment, besides his 50-year marriage to actress Joanne Woodward, was starting Newman's Own, which since 1982 has made popcorn, spaghetti sauce, lemonade and salad dressing and has donated more than $250 million to charities selected by Newman himself.
We're guessing his character isn't returning for Cars 2 then? All jokes aside, this makes us very sad. And we had to choose a photo of Newman as we choose to remember him, pre-salad dressing and looking hot.
