Famous actors : Paul Newman, Elizabeth Tailor

Newman, actor, director, and racing driver, was born so good looking
that people said it was а shame to waste such beauty on, boy. He was
born in Cleveland, 0hio, in 1925, and did some acting in high
school and college, but never seriously considered making it his
future career. However, after graduating, he immediately started
working in the theater. He met his first wife, Jackie Witte, while they
were acting together, and they got married in 1949. They had three
children, a boy and two girls He found work in the theater and on
several TV shows in New York. When he was thirty, he went to Los Angeles
and made his first film. It was what Newman called an ‘uncomfortable’
start in the movies, in the role of a Greek slave. The experience was so
bad that he went back to the theater and didn’t accept another film role
for two years. The film he chose was his big break. He played the
boxer, Rocky Graziano, in the film Someone up There Likes Me. Newman is
a method actor who believes in living the part before beginning the film
He spent days – from morning till night – with Graziano. He studied the
fighter’s speech and watched him box, and they talked endlessly about
Graziano’s childhood. The picture brought Newman stardom overnight. He
was living in Los Angeles away from his family when he met Joanne
Woodward, an actress who he had first met in New York. They worked
together in The Long Hot Summer. His wife, Jackie, and Paul recognized
that their marriage wasn’t working, and got divorced. Newman and Miss
Woodward were married in Las Vegas in 1958. Newman went on to make films
such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid, The Sting and Towering Inferno. He has made over
forty-five films, and has won many awards, but he has never won an
Oscar. His marriage to Woodward is one of the longest and strongest in
Hollywood. They have three daughters, and they have co-starred in six
films. Ever since the film Winning, Newman has been passionately
interested in car racing, and in 1979 he came second in the twenty-four
hour Le Mans race. But the end of the 1970s was not all good news for
him. In 1978 his only son, Scott, died of a drug overdose, and as a
result Newman created the Scott Newman Foundation to inform young people
on drug abuse. He has a strong social conscience, and has supported
causes such as the anti-nuclear movement, the environment, and driver
education. All the money from ‘Newman’s Own’ salad dressing, popcorn,
and spaghetti sauce, now a multi-million dollar business, goes to
charity. He is more than just a movie star. would like to be remembered
as a man who has tried to help people to communicate with each other,’
says Newman, ‘and who has tried to do something good with his life. You
have to keep trying. Thafs the most important thing.’
