Paul Newman - A Class Act

I was sorry to read to about the death of Paul Newman.
Actor, humanitarian, husband, father, race car driver...what a life he led.
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward Wedding 1958

50th Wedding Anniversary

What I find to be astounding out of his many accomplishments is the fact that he distanced himself from the culture of Hollywood and had a 50 year marriage.

His long marriage to Woodward ran counter to Hollywood's tradition of fast weddings and quick divorces, and the pair lived in a 200-year-old Connecticut house, far from the heart of the entertainment industry.
Asked the secret of his marriage, Newman once said there was no reason to roam, asking: "I have steak at home. Why should I go out for a hamburger?"

Could Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt be the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward of our generation?

I hope so. So far they've distanced themselves from Hollywood, had a big family and devoted a large part of their lives to humanitarian causes.
