Paul Newman


Age: 83

Oscar-winning actor and superstar considered as one of the last of the great 20th-century movie stars who personified cool as an activist, race car driver, popcorn impresario, and the anti-hero of such films as Hud, Cool Hand Luke, and The Color of Money when he got his start in theater and on TV during the 1950's and later became one of the world's most enduring and popular film stars and a legend held in awe by his peers, who was nominated for Oscars 10 times winning one regular award for The Color of Money in 1986 and two honorary ones, and also had major roles in more than 50 films.
