This breaks my heart. May he rest in peace and may his wife and children find comfort. He was always my favorite.

He was a great actor. A great husband. A great man. He will be sadly missed. We dont have many of the great actors left. Most have passed on. God Bless you Paul. God bless you Joanne. True class.

Let It Be    

Many years ago, I walked into an elevator in Calgary, Canada - Paul Newman was the only person in it - THOSE BLUE EYES!! (As deep and as beautiful as you've heard .) We just kind of exchanged polite smiles and then we both started laugihng! Really laughing!!

This world is truly going to miss such a fine and truly down-to-earth ,gentleman. - May he find rest in the arms o the angels.

Rest in peace, Paul :( Geez TMZ, if you scroll down under the "RIP" section, you have paragraphs written for some legendary and only-wish-they-were-legendary celebs who have passed on. At least give Paul Newman a little more respectful write-up...OR if your "goal" was to keep it short and sweet, couldn't you find a better adjective than the boring and vague "awesome"??? Sheesh, it's Paul Newman!
