Hud, RIP

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.


  1. I was sad to hear about Paul Newman's of my favorite actors!

  2. Oh man. Wow. Talk about all time coolest and hottest heartthrob. Maybe tonight should be for Cool Hand Luke.....
