Giver Remembered

Paul Newman (1925-2008) well-known for his legendary roles in Hollywood, also remembered for his incredible giving to charity and the arts - more than $250M in all.

Paul Newman on acting:
Study your craft and know who you are and what’s special about you. Find out what everyone does on a film set, ask questions and listen. Make sure you live life, which means don’t do things where you court celebrity, and give something positive back to our society.

His characters were often of a lone man, fighting the impossible fight against the odds. Even if the fight was ultimately unsuccessful, his refusal to back down ensured he'd always be a winner in the audience's eyes.
