People always ask me, "Who is on your list of people you'd really like to interview?" I always say, "Paul Newman." And after watching the tributes to him this weekend after he lost his battle with cancer, I remembered why I wanted to talk with him. Paul Newman was a class act. Now, granted I never met him, but I have come in contact with so many people who had. And just about every one of them had something positive to say. He wasn't one of the glitzy, papparazzi-chased, self-absorbed types you see in Hollywood today. Yes, he was a stunningly handsome and successful star of the silver screen but without the disfunction that seems to weave itself into the lives of the Hollywood elite. Newman cared deeply for his wife, his children, his community, the environment and those less fortunate. He took his celebrity status and used it for the betterment of others, not just himself. He had a distain for the media, especially the celebrity media, and an impatience with the frivolous. He objected to films packed with gratuituos sex and violence. Yes, Newman was a man of an earlier day, but perhaps the actors and actresses of today should embrace his class and style.
