I had a feeling when I got up this morning because HBO is playing Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid over and over. Watching right now. Great actor, great MAN.

My prayers are with his family.

This makes me very sad but glad that he doesn't have to suffer anymore. I hope he runs into Mom when he checks into heaven as they could have a ball. RIP, Paul old blue eyes.

PS: He and my dad looked alike when they were young.

This is so sad....he is out of pain now, though. I feel horrible for Joanne and their children. God bless them and God rest Paul...he was one of the VERY best and they just don't make 'em like him anymore.

I met Paul Newman in 1987? at the St. Pete Grand Prix when he was racing his car.... what a man. He was one of the most gracious, down to Earth, kind person I had ever met. His blue eyes were like marbles and I did not swoon or act like a teenager, but when I got home, I begged my husband to get contacts, to change his brown eyes. Of course he refused...... I do think my husband had a man crush as well. Mr. Newman was a special person and will be missed.

I just saw the announcement now.. I am saddened by his loss..however his memory will live on thru his films and through all of his charitable works.. its is the worlds loss but not nearly so much as his family. I am glad he died at home surrounded by those who loved him most and glad that he is no longer suffering and finally at peace with no more pain.

Blink is heartbroken. My husband went to school with his daughter, and I may have married him just because of that.
Love to Mrs. Newman and their family to day.

I just heard the news. Gosh, this is unbelievable.
What a great guy and an icon!
It's so weird how time flies and we all age... It seems like not long ago I was a kid watching him in so many awesome movies.

What??!!!! I didn't know he was ill. He was such a wonderful man and the most handsome ever. Cool Hand Luke is my favorite movie. I'm in shock.

I agree with what someone else posted, they don't make men like this anymore.

Not only was he beautiful on the outside but he had a beautiful heart and soul also.
