I didn't realize what an incredible actor Paul Newman was until I saw him in Hud a few months ago. (And he's gorgeous. Brad Pitt looks Ken-doll-ish in comparison.)
I didn't realize how badass he was until I read his obit in The New York Times this morning. This is what Newman told Newsweek a month before his 70th birthday:
"I'm not mellower, I'm not less angry, I'm not less self-critical, I'm not less tenacious,'' he said. ''Maybe the best part is that your liver can't handle those beers at noon anymore,'' he said.
