This weekend, we lost a great actor, philanthropist and, well, timelessly hot man: Paul Newman.

Newman, 83, succumbed to cancer on Saturday. Newman’s career as an actor saw him nominated three times for an Oscar: in 1959 for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, in 2003 for Road to Perdition and for 1987’s The Color of Money, for which he won. He also starred in such iconic movies as Cool Hand Luke, The Hustler, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting and Hud.

In recent years, Newman became even more famous for his Newman’s Own line of food products. Making everything from salad dressing to wine, Newman’s company has donated more than $250 million to charity since its start in 1982.

Newman is survived by his wife, actress Joanne Woodward, five children and several grandchildren.

  1. This man could melt even the coldest of hearts, i.e. mine! The world lost a piece of its lustre with his passing.
