NEW HAVEN, Conn. A spokeswoman for screen legend Paul Newman says the actor has died at age 83. (external - login to view)
Spokeswoman Marni Tomljanovic says Newman died Friday of cancer. No other details were immediately available.
Newman was nominated for Academy Awards 10 times, winning a regular Oscar in 1987 for "The Color of Money" and two honorary ones.

He was equally at home in comedies such as "The Sting" and dramas such as "Hud."
He sometimes teamed with his wife, Joanne Woodward, also an Oscar winner for the 1957 film "Three Faces of Eve."
In August, he finished chemotherapy and told his family he wanted to die at home. He was given only weeks to live.

Paul Newman's death will leave a big hole. He hadn't made a movie in a few years but can anybody remember a bad Paul Newman movie? I can't.
I didn't watch many Paul Newman movies. I did see Color of Money and I enjoyed it.
