Paul Newman has announced that he will begin winding down his racing and acting careers:
LONDON (AP) — Paul Newman, the movie legend whose piercing blue eyes have lit up screens for five decades, says he’ll give up the activities he once described as his two great passions – acting and motor racing.
"I think both are winding down," Newman told The Associated Press during an interview Friday. "I’ll probably race for another year."
Fans need not despair just yet. The iconic star of "The Hustler" and "Cool Hand Luke" says he plans to make one last film – "for good luck."
He won’t say what it is, but hints that a long-rumored reunion with Robert Redford, his co-star in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "The Sting," may yet happen.
Can you believe he turned 80 in January?
