Share Your Memories of Paul Newman
Actor Paul Newman passed away yesterday at age 83 -- and the star's daughters released a statement about the memories of their father -- and "Extra" wants you to share the same.
"Paul Newman played many unforgettable roles. But the ones for which he was proudest never had top billing on the marquee -- devoted husband, loving father, adoring grandfather, dedicated philanthropist," the girls wrote. "Our father was a rare symbol of selfless humility, the last to acknowledge what he was doing was special. Intensely private, he quietly succeeded beyond measure in impacting the lives of so many with his generosity.
The statement reads, "He will be profoundly missed by those whose lives he touched, but he leaves us with extraordinary inspiration to draw upon."
