Paul Newman RIP

Paul Newman was probably the first celebrity I was ever around. I was a little kid and my dad was an extra in the movie 'Rachael Rachael'. I remember seeing Paul Newman in the distance and very clearly remembering my mom (in her early 20's at the time) and her sister ooh and ahh'ing over this Paul Newman guy. I found this quite strange but it was just kind of cool being on a movie set.

Newman did what few people do when they get rich. He gave back. He started his line of food products which resulted in millions going to charity. He was active in political causes and always seemed to be looking to help out others rather than selfishly looking to gain more for himself. Paul Newman will be missed.
