WESTPORT, Conn. — Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as the anti-hero of such films as "Hud," "Cool Hand Luke" and "The Color of Money" _ and as an activist, race car driver and popcorn impresario _ has died. He was 83.

Newman died Friday after a long battle with cancer at his farmhouse near Westport, publicist Jeff Sanderson said. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.

In May, Newman had dropped plans to direct a fall production of "Of Mice and Men," citing unspecified health issues.

He got his start in theater and on television during the 1950s, and went on to become one of the world's most enduring and popular film stars, a legend held in awe by his peers. He was nominated for Oscars 10 times, winning one regular award and two honorary ones, and had major roles in more than 50 motion pictures, including "Exodus," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "The Verdict," "The Sting" and "Absence of Malice."

Newman worked with some of the greatest directors of the past half century, from Alfred Hitchcock and John Huston to Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese and the Coen brothers. His co-stars included Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and, most famously, Robert Redford, his sidekick in "Butch Cassidy" and "The Sting."

He sometimes teamed with his wife and fellow Oscar winner, Joanne Woodward, with whom he had one of Hollywood's rare long-term marriages. "I have steak at home, why go out for hamburger?" Newman told Playboy magazine when asked if he was tempted to stray. They wed in 1958, around the same time they both appeared in "The Long Hot Summer," and Newman directed her in several films, including "Rachel, Rachel" and "The Glass Menagerie."

As much as I have enjoyed his movies (Butch Cassidy is one of my top fives), I have enjoyed his racing career even more. It has been said that, if he had started earlier, he likely would have become one of the greatest.

I have no idea how much money he has generated for charity and how many people he has helped over the years, but I am sure those numbers are staggering. What a great man.

A great example of someone with class. He didn't let his success, visibility, money, etc. go to his head and create self-destructive behavior.

What a great guy - a superb actor, husband, race driver and enthusiast, entrepreneur, philanthropist. He was, probably my favorite actor. I remember seeing him in a BBC interview on 'Parkinson', where he hardly said a thing! - he was known for his lack of enthusiasm for the press......He'll be sadly missed.
