Rest in the Arms of the Angels, Blue Eyes

Not everyone in Hollywood is a stand up guy or gal, but we lost a great one today. Paul Newman was not just an actor, film director, race car driver, and incredible entrepreneur. He was known for his piercing blue eyes and massive talent, but also for his generous spirit.

It's strange to think that an entire generation-- perhaps two-- knew him as "the salad dressing guy." But how often did any of us really consider, when we grabbed the popcorn or any of his all-natural products, that he raised over 200 million dollars for charity.

So let us observe a moment of reflection for a tremendous loss.

  6. One thing I always admired about Paul Newman, was his authenticity and his genuine love for his wife, Joanne Woodward. He saw himself as the lucky one in that match, and you could see it every time he looked at her. In the tiniest moments.

    He will be missed.
