…not that anyone cares but me and Kitty but still…
This week there was only one man it could be:
The late, great Paul Newman.
He passed away last week, leaving his much beloved wife, Joanne Woodward and 5 daughters, 2 from a previous marriage.
Apart from being so handsome it actually hurts to look at him, Paul was a good man. He was a co-founder of Newman’s Own a food company which has some very famous dressings, from which Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity – as of 2007, the donations had exceeded US$220 million.
He lived away from Hollywood excesses and famously said of his marriage to Joanne, “Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?”. Ronnie Wood, take note.
There’s lot of information about Paul on the internet, but I was genuinely upset to hear about his passing as he seemed like a genuinely good person, who didn’t just talk the talk, he walked the walk and he loved his wife and family. It doesn’t sound like much but do they make many men like Paul these days? Nope.
So goodbye to a legend, a kind man and a real dish
