Famous actors

 

Newman, actor, director, and racing driver, was born so good looking

that people said it was а shame to waste such beauty on, boy. He was

born in Cleveland, 0hio, in 1925, and did some acting in high

school and college, but never seriously considered making it his

future career. However, after graduating, he immediately started

working in the theater. He met his first wife, Jackie Witte, while they

were acting together, and they got married in 1949. They had three

children, a boy and two girls He found work in the theater and on

several TV shows in New York. When he was thirty, he went to Los Angeles

and made his first film. It was what Newman called an 'uncomfortable'

start in the movies, in the role of a Greek slave. The experience was so

bad that he went back to the theater and didn't accept another film role

for two years. The film he chose was his big break. He played the

boxer, Rocky Graziano, in the film Someone up There Likes Me. Newman is

a method actor who believes in living the part before beginning the film

He spent days - from morning till night - with Graziano. He studied the

fighter's speech and watched him box, and they talked endlessly about

Graziano's childhood. The picture brought Newman stardom overnight. He

was living in Los Angeles away from his family when he met Joanne

Woodward, an actress who he had first met in New York. They worked

together in The Long Hot Summer. His wife, Jackie, and Paul recognized

that their marriage wasn't working, and got divorced. Newman and Miss

Woodward were married in Las Vegas in 1958. Newman went on to make films

such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the

Sundance Kid, The Sting and Towering Inferno. He has made over

forty-five films, and has won many awards, but he has never won an

Oscar. His marriage to Woodward is one of the longest and strongest in

Hollywood. They have three daughters, and they have co-starred in six

films. Ever since the film Winning, Newman has been passionately

interested in car racing, and in 1979 he came second in the twenty-four

hour Le Mans race. But the end of the 1970s was not all good news for

him. In 1978 his only son, Scott, died of a drug overdose, and as a

result Newman created the Scott Newman Foundation to inform young people

on drug abuse. He has a strong social conscience, and has supported

causes such as the anti-nuclear movement, the environment, and driver

education. All the money from 'Newman's Own' salad dressing, popcorn,

and spaghetti sauce, now a multi-million dollar business, goes to

charity. He is more than just a movie star. would like to be remembered

as a man who has tried to help people to communicate with each other,'

says Newman, 'and who has tried to do something good with his life. You

have to keep trying. Thafs the most important thing.'
